First Jeep, Texas Noob.

Hey folks

Newbie here. Been lurking and joined up. Picked up a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Sport Unlimited.

Pretty excited. Not sure about mods yet, just getting started. Bought this for a 3rd vehicle to use at ranch/lease and airport.

Screen name is RollingRock..its a long story but in short I created that profile for myself many years ago while surfing on another detailing forum...I had a beer in my hand and well the rest is history.

Only had the Jeep a few days but already my kids have said its too high so I am on the hunt for nerf bars. Seems none of the manufactures list 2014 yet so I am struggling getting info. Looking at some NFab's for now.

Other mods planned:
Wheels and Tires (I don't want to go crazy here, I don't want to do a lift maybe just a front level kit ) ---I need some coaching here.

Rigid fog light conversion (Maybe)
Hard top (Freedom top) Insulation panels maybe? (not sure I called it right thing there)

Interior LED dome light replacement bulbs

Only thing I have done so far is washed and polished the paint and put a coat of Optimum Opti-Coat on (its like a second clear) I have an OCD affliction for of my hobby's is paint restoration....anywho.

Looking forward to soaking it all in.

Nice rig! Loving my Billet too. Congrats.

I was also set on the NFab Nerf, but have not ordered yet but they look sharp. Are you happy with them?
