Thanks all!

Went off-roading for the 1st time this week. Did about 15 mile trail - hill terrain/climb light off-road with dry conditions and had a blast. Good way to get acquainted with the Jeep!

Trying to weigh fuel economy with lift/tire upgrade, not that the Jeep is economical in the first place! Really love the more aggressive wheel/tire and look of a lifted wheeler but I do have to drive around town too! Also road noise when I get calls on the road.

Maybe I should drive the stock for a while and see how it goes.....

Have been reading the threads on the forum and there are so many options and opinions.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks!!

First mods done, nothing amazing but...

AntennaX 14" - awesome look and performs same as stock antenna or better.

Replaced all speakers with Alpine S series, with the addition of amp on OEM stereo. Also added a Rockford Fosgate P600 Mono Block amp & 500 watt 12" Kicker SubWoofer in a box.

Now that's done I will ride stock rig for a little while I work on the lift/shocks/tires & wheels plan. So many choices. Research....

I also like the Bushwacker Fenders.

So much good info on the forum. Thanks to all for posting good info!
