Hey guys, just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a maintenance electrician/mechanic at a powdered metal factory, and I've been into jeeps my whole life, started at about 12 years old running around with my dad in a '46 CJ2A. Went from there to a '55 CJ5, to when I was 17 years old into a Cherokee lifted 5" on 33s. Got out of the Jeep game for a bit, and in 2015 (at 21 years old) I bought a new 2 door wrangler sport. Built it to 2.5" lift, 35s, cut fenders myself, new links and trackbars, bumpers, winch, and wheeled the hell out of it. In 2017 I did the ultimate sin and traded it on a new toyota Tacoma. Lifted it, stuffed 33s under it.... And realized after a year that I'm just not ready for that practical of a vehicle yet (and it was an absolute boat in the woods)
Last month (February 2018, I'm 24 now) I started looking for another jeep to trade my truck on, and I found a Dozer 2012 Rubicon - 1 old man owner, bone stock, manual trans, 15,000 miles on it, never even driven in the rain - so I made the trip and bought it haha. I am so happy to be back in the jeep game. My last build and experience was on Wayalife forum, but I wanted to try out somewhere different this time around.
Anyways, I hope to learn and contribute my own experience here and can't wait to start my new rubicon build!!

Reason: In hindsight, I realized I probably shouldn't trash-talk another forum in my first ever post to this one. My apologies for that.
