What to start with?

I'm looking into modding a jeep and wanted to know what is the best model to start with? I'd like to start with something with low mileage so I'd be looking at a 2010 to 2012. I do know that the Rubicon seems to be at the top. But I'm not sure if adding a lift, wheels, etc will make all the stock upgrades moot. Any advice is appreciated.

That is a really hard Question to answer my friend. 2012 has the new engine/auto tranny. I'd say go for a 12 if you have the money.
Drive it stock for a while and decide on mods later. It all depends on your needs as far as model type. A sport is very capable. I guess it all comes down to budget

There's a beautiful 04 Tj Rubi posted on here with only 25,000 miles. Check that out.
