Hi everyone. I might be getting a new TJ and was wondering if I should go with a TJ. I'll be doing some city and snow driving and start to do some wheeling. Any tips would be appreciated.

Get it. You'll love it.
Actually it's all up to your personal tastes. If you don't mind a tiny bit of a rough ride over city potholes and such, and don't mind some wind noise (if you don't have a hardtop) they you'll probably like it a lot. I know after I had my first Wrangler (a 95 sahara YJ) I couldn't stand not having one. And one question, whats the deal with ABS? I don't see anything in your post about ABS?

Ahh, I get it. I guess thats up to you too. Personally I don't really like ABS. My last truck had it and it always seemed to activate at the stupidest times. Plus if you plan on a lift and bigger tires in the future, you may end up with problems due to different tire sizes and the speed sensors. This all could be recalibrated, but thats just another cost and thing to do. All in all, its just up to you.

Do you plan on offroading? If so, don't get it. ABS is only available with the D35 rear which is equivalent to a piece of crap. The D44 rear is not available with ABS at this time but is a stronger, more reliable rear.

I agree, if you are going to do any off road wheeling, forget ABS brakes.
