Need an opinion

I need some help trying to decide what parts I am going to add to my jk

I've done a little bit of research but I figured id get some suggestion from here before I made up my mind. IM trying to get the best product for the least amount because the amount I've spent on my jeep is ridiculous

What I want:
I want to chip it
Got a magnaflow muffler (not the whole system just wanted more sound in the beginning) ---> an acquaintance cut of his exhaust right after his cat and it sounds decent. Not sure if its going to add power or if its bad.not sure what to do there.


need to get a front guard but want it to work well with the stock bumper because I don't want to replace the stock bumper. I also have winch. Would anything fit on that because a lot of places are recommending me to change the whole bumper and get a kit. I think they just want me to spend extra $$

I'd like to get a roof rack but I have a soft top. I like the ones where it starts from the back lights and comes all the way to the front window. Needs to fit on a two door. Prefer to get one with some lights but not a big deal.

LASTLY - way to much noise from the soft top. I don't remember it being this bad when I first buy it. This is my toy so I don't drive it often. Do other people have the same issue.

Thank you in advance for any replies

When you say front guard, are you talking about replacing that plasctic air dam? If you are, then yes, there are some that will work with the stock bumper. I know Quadratec sells some, so I'm sure that there are others that sell them.

As far as putting a winch on the stock bumper, it can be done. Here is a link to another thread on the subject,

The only headers out there worth the labor to install are the Ripp long tube headers. Expensive, but they work. Buy that front bumper, look at the poison spyder, about $600, but the last one you will need. By the time you buy a winch plate and all that you need to mount a winch on the stocker, you could almost be at the spyder unit, and they look much better.

What I mean when I say a front guard is the guard so if I bump something it won't damage the actual bumper

Suggested parts for a JK:
Jack up your license plates and drop a TJ inbetween them.
