Welcome! Take it out and wheel it a little as is... get used to how it feels, then mod to your liking.

Congrates and welcome to the WF. 1st thing you should do it Post some Pictures so we can all see it. 2nd thing is Drive it. Before doing any Modding at all you have to ask yourself questions.
1. Is this going to be your Daily Driver?
2. What type of Off Roading are you going to do?
3. Mudd?
4. Rocks?
5. Wooded trails?
6. severity of off roading you will do, Mild, Medium, or Hard Core?

After you know all of these you can Mod as you go. There are tons of accessories for these things out there, some good, some bad. You will learn quickly, but don't be afraid to ask if your not sure, thats what we are here for.

welcome to the forum and welcome to the addiction. You have just purchased what i like to call the "gateway jeep." it starts out stock and small and innocent fun, you just add a new bumper. the the craving hits and you add another bumper. then the jitters set in, you have to add a little lift, maybe a 2" budget boost and some 31's or a 3" suspension lift and some 33's. but it doesnt stop there. then you add skid plates, a snorkel, new better tires, a cat back, and so on. you think ok this will be my last mod, but NO! Then you have to get a bigger lift. 6" long arm, adjustable track bar, sye, 35" swampers, custom roll cage, 5 pt. harness, chop the render flares...... You stop an look at your jeep and for one brief second you think, "I'm done there is nothing else i can add, i've got it all." Then BOOM! you see a CJ or a YJ for sale along side the road. you think "oh, i could jack that baby up, and really tear into those trails," (just look at my signature, it never ends). sometimes i think it would be cheaper to be addicted to crack, coke, and heroin, than to own a jeep. drug addicts have rehab and sponsors, jeeps addicts have forums and enablers. so as I said before welcome to the forum and to the addiction. we are always here for you though!! .
