That's a really nice Rubicon. Good choice with the color too. Congratulations on the purchase, you're going to enjoy it.
Now, you mentioned coming from the full size truck world... unfortunately, coming from were the key words in that statement. Don't take that to offense, cause I'm just giving it to you straight. Ready-lift is a full size truck company that happens to make a lift for the JK as well. Is it tough? Does it ride well? I don't know. But that Jeep isn't going to act, drive or feel like any full sized truck you've owned. That's why companies that make the "best" suspension systems for these vehicles usually focus mostly on Jeeps. My best advice is check your knowledge at the door, cause these Jeeps are unique. Fortunately though, they have been around long enough that people here and companies have them down to an exact science.
Anyway, enough rambling. I like those fenders a lot. Don't forget to try and get out and wheel it while it's still stock. Not only is it unbelievably capable, but you'll get a better feel for the Jeep overall. Besides, even easier trails are fun when you can't just walk over everything. I've had a blast wheeling mine while it's little.
Oh, and addressing the aluminium holding up to winters; no, it won't. The shafts will look like they are rusting through and there will be a shit load of corrosion on the shock body because of the road salt. Trust me, it's why we can't have nice things year round. Mechanically it'll be fine but it will look like garbage after 2 winters. East coast sucks like that.
