New Owner from Dallas, TX

Hey y'all.
MY name is Eric and I'm in Dallas, TX (Flower Mound for you locals)

Just purchased my first Jeep. It's a beginning of a lot of firsts for me.

My first 4wd vehicle and the first I've had that is lifted. My last couple of cars have been stock, but I'm experienced in lowered/airbagged cars and trucks.

I just bought the jeep yesterday and am having a ball with it.

I THINK it has a 4" lift, but I'm not sure. 35" tires (34.6, but do you guys call that 35??) Tire size is 315/75r16.

Anyway. It's a 2009 Rubicon Unlimited. 6 speed transmission. Pictures will probably tell the rest (can't post links yet). It appears this thing was traded into a dealer in Temple, TX so maybe the previous owner is on here???

I'd LOVE if anyone could tell me what kind/size of lift I have.
Being a complete noob to off-roading, I'd like to find some easy dirt trails in the local area. My quick research tells me there aren't any but you never know. My wife thinks the only off-roading I'll ever do is if I accidentally drive over the edge of our driveway into the grass.

Welcome! Post some pics of the control arms, springs, etc. and we might be able to help you out with whose lift you have.
I was also into lowered hot rods prior to the JK, but the money spends the same!
