Greetings from SC!

Hey everyone! Not new to the Jeep world, but new to the JK/JKU family. I currently own a 2.5L '97 TJ with a total of 5.5" of lift and 33" Swampers that I've owned it's whole life. It was a present to myself back in 1997 when I got my first job out of college. Fast forward to 2015, I have a family of 5 that I can't take in my TJ, and my 3 kids don't want me to sell it. My wife and I are currently in the market for a '16 JKU in either the Granite Crystal Metallic, or Rhino. Looking forward to getting my hands on one.

Hey Jason! Lake Wylie is about 30 minutes South of Charlotte. Anderson is about 2 hours from here. Wife has family in Anderson though.

I wish I had seen this sooner...LOL We just finalized the paperwork today on a 16 Rhino Sahara JKU. Long story short, it's an "upgrade" from the Granite Sport S we had been waiting on. Payments are still the same, and I got 3.73 gears, hardtop, max tow package, and the upgraded Alpine speakers. Now we're just waiting for delivery...hopefully by 1/7/16. Pics will be coming....

That JK belongs to my friend Fulton. We were at Lake Houser Off Road Park. Nothing too difficult, just a lot of mud....at least on that day that we went.
