Bought my first wrangler

Two weeks ago I bought a 2006 lifted commander and was in a head on collision (other persons fault) a week after buying it but today I decided to switch and buy a 2008 wrangler unlimited x. What would be the best first upgrade done to the car?

Most of the forum members believe that if a jeep is referred to as a car, somewhere a little kitten dies. (don't ask...) as for a mod, tires are easy start unless you like what ur running of course. Bumpers, winches... You should post a few pics which might help!

PS welcome to the forum!!

Post pics, wheel it, be amazed, wheel it more, decide what you need vs. want, do that, wheel it, break something, upgrade, rinse and repeat. Add more pictures as necessary.

Doesn't not apply if mall crawler. Then buy parts, pictures, repeat until broke or you get tired of curbs.

Looks pretty nice. Congrats! Are those chrome rims? If they are, first mod should be to get rid of those wheels...
