First time Jeep Owner 07 JK OKC, OK

Well I recently caught the JEEP bug. I purchased a 07 Jeep Wrangler X 2 door for some fun. Man did I not realize what a money pit this will be. Once my friends saw it they told me that first thing. Ive added a few poser pics at the end.
My jeep currently is running Fabfour Front and rear bumpers, Warn 12000 pound winch, which I ran a in cab secondary switch, Skyjacker lift, actually not sure of size, ProComp wheels with 35" Mickey Thompson MTZ's. I'm sure there is more that I will remember once I post this.

I'm originally from Marion, N.C. I live in Oklahoma City, OK now. I work for a Community College as a Sergeant in the Safety and Security Department. I am a USMC and US Army veteran. I have a Beautiful CA girl as a wife for the last 15 years, and two awesome boys to boot.

I have a powder coating business on the side that I do stuff on the side with. I go by my nickname from www.speed-tribe.com of HOTWIRE. (I got the name from trying to burn my bike up by adding lighting and accessories).Originally it started out of my love for motorcycles. I have a 03 CBR600rr. Usually we are out riding after work till the early morning. If anyone needs any powder coating done let me know. I am very reasonable on my pricing. I am not a professional business but more of a hobbyist. I can provide pics of my work if your interested. Should me a PM or email at [email protected].

Hope to meet up with folks and meet new friends. If your ever in the OKC area let me know.

Welcome to JKO and Jeep ownership. Going on 2 1/2 years here and wish we'd done it years ago.

This is some interior mods I have done. Painted all the vent rings red, did the top dash piece. Then added some mood lighting.

My remote winch switch

The switch is mounted in the blank space from the aftermarket stereo mount. You must flip the toggle switch marked "winch" in order for it to become alive. I did this because my 6 year old likes to push buttons. I didn't want my bumper folder around itself. Its a warn switch for the atv winch. It is only a three wire switch so I had to trick the winch into thinking it was a 5 wire. Anyway, now I can control it from inside inside of running the other lead thru the window.
