Got my first Jeep

Hello all. My name is Steve and I'm sneaking up on 50 and finally got my first Jeep. Its a 2013 Commando Green 2 door Rubicon. It appears to have a Teraflex 2.5" lift since I can see Teraflex goodies all over underneath. Most of the 2.5" spring lift appears to be present. Teraflex diff covers too. It's running 285/70/17 Toyo RTs for now. I talked to Northridge since they are only about an hour away and I think my 3.73s are getting swapped for 4.56s soon. Gonna pick up new wheels and 35s while I'm there. Just gotta save up a bit.

Are Pro Comp wheels decent? I was thinking 17x9s and Milestar Patagonia 315/70s. I need to swap wheels since I have 4 17x9 AE alloys and a stock rim. My spare doesn't match right now. Wasn't too pleased when I removed the tire cover after I bought it but whaddaya do?

New front bumper sooner. DV8 FS16 according to the wife-with a winch. Works for me. Keeping her happy is easy when she picks stuff I like anyway...Oh and I put MORE spring steps on for her already.

Primarily a DD due to my 30 minute call window no matter what the weather is. Sometimes pull our tiny camper out here in Western WA state. Forest service roads and the like for wheeling. Moab and Black Bear Pass are on the bucket list though.

So far it's been a fun just looking at all the options and planning trips to use them on!

Steve,
We bought our first Jeep JK 2 weeks ago and I love it. We were able to find a 2012 MW3 2 door in Silver. It was totally stock and used for towing behind an RV. It was fully loaded with all options including body colored top and fenders. We just installed Milestar Patagonia M/T's 285/70R17 on the factory black rims. So far - 2 outings and DD - I love the tires.
Since buying it I have found 3 issues with it - no dome light unless you push on the overhead switch, no transmission selector light and the passenger side window does not have the auto down feature even though it says that it does.

I forgot to mention that a friend gave me his 2.5" Teraflex coils to throw under the low riding JK, too. I will need to buy shocks, brake line extenders and longer bumpstops.
