    Good luck with the new ride... Yes a little more weight in the back will be good for the Snow drives...What year is it? 4x4 or 4x2? Locker in the rear?

    Welcome aboard! I used to have a Jeep Wrangler and loved it. I've got to admit, though... my Chevy Silverado is a lot less of a hastle. Better door/window closure, less road noise, better security, etc. I would never have a Jeep as a daily driver again. I WOULD, however, love to own another Jeep as a weekend driver and offroad toy. They're very capable. Soon.

    Again, welcome to the club. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving.
