Cool Just got my first Jeep

Hey all! I just bought my first Jeep last month. What was I thinking, I should have had a Jeep all along! I bought an 03 TJ, 4cyl, soft top and pushing 31" tires. My profile pic is NOT my Jeep, but I hope mine will take on a like personality as the one in my profile. My TJ's primary usage is a daily driver (I know that sucks) but I also want to hit the trails here in Colorado. So, I'm going to ask a loaded question... What upgrades do I do first?

Depends what budget you are on, maybe a small lift if you are staying with 31s, undercarriage protection, etc.

Its a good idea if you have the money and go offroading somewhat consistantly.

Had to test her out

I added hella 550ff's off road lights, rear armor and rear light brush guards.
Then I went camping with a buddy and made my jeep feel at home. I am amazed at how well the mostly stock jeep handles off road. I'm on nthe iPad, and can't load pics, but I will soon. Needless to say my blue jeep is now brown. I love mud!
