Hello all.

First, I would like to say that I'm another member of a different forum and by far, I can already tell that this one is far superior. From the layout, to the ease of use, to the evertything else... Love this one so far.

Anyway, I just bought my Black, 2012, JK Sport last November. Boy do I wish I got a wrangler years ago. I have yet to be disappointed. I can't wait to really start getting into the mods. I did the typical interior accessories which were mostly gifts from friends and family. Yesteray, I just installed a "small" upgrade to the wheels and tires. I opted to buy the basic sport model as opposed to the Saharra or Rubi because I want to really "build" my JK, not "buy" it, if you know what I mean.

Someone I knew was selling 4 slightly used and 1 brand new spare off of their Saharra, 245/75R/16's for $275. I jumpped all over the deal. I figured that if I'm getting a set like that and for that price, and I have my original 225/75R/16's with less than 10,000 miles on mine, I couldn't go wrong. Really what is was is that I couldn't stand seeing the same OEM rims on mine, that a Jeep Liberty would have. The new "used" set are still simple, but I'm moving in the right direction of making it my own.

As you can see, I added the lights to the hood and that's about it. The wheels you see are no more...

Anyone have suggestions as to what else I should do? I want some rock rails next. I'm really only going to wheel in mud/snow, no real rock crawling anytime soon.

I look forward to hearing some great suggestions.

Phil

You can usually pick up a set of sliders off a rubicon for a $100 or so, if your only doing mud and snow, I would put the $$ into bumpers, or diff covers. And you will eventually find that spending a few extra bucks on quality parts is well worth it.
And welcome to the crazy world of jeeps!

Here's the updated picture. Even though they're still ssimple, love the new wheels and tires.
