waiting for my order

What's going on guys. I'm new to this sight but definitely not new to Jeeps. I've owned a few so far, but nothing was exactly what I wanted. I'm currently driving a 97 TJ with 33's and a little over 220k miles. Heat doesn't really work, it leaks all over, no ac and it's just getting tired. I've dove it hard since the day I owned it. It's my daily driver and I love driving it. Now I'm in a position in my life where I don't have to just get by with what I got, so I went to the dealership and they did a search and couldn't find what I was looking for within a 1,000 miles. That being said, I went ahead and ordered a 16 Rubicon, granite crystal, black hardtop, ac and 6 speed. They told me 6-10 weeks 3 weeks ago. Now the waiting game and it's torture! I'm definitely not gonna leave it stock and I'm open to suggestions on certain things that need to be done. Reinforcing the front axle and C,s. Stuff like that. Thankx guys

Hey George,
WELCOME TO JKO ! ! !
Don't get mad about us wrecking your 37" tire thread - you posted it in Chit Chat, where threads go to get hosed

For future reference, if you want a thread like that to stay on topic, but it's not a Tech thread, JK General Discussion is a safe(ish) location.

And, for the record, we answered your questions before turning that thread into . . . whatever it's becoming

Nice! Do yourself a favor, and wheel it while it's still stock. My stock 2 door Rubi amazed the shit out of me.

I can see why you were asking about 37s - it looks like gnarly is in your future
