Build Order for Outdoorist
I just purchased my jeep about a month ago to replace my Subaru. Besides always wanting a Wrangler I need something that fit my life style better. I do a lot of outdoor activities from kayaking, fishing, photography, backpacking, and general rugged exploring. I find myself drawn to dirt roads or anything to get me off the beaten path. So here is where I ask for some help. Iím a little overwhelmed with the amount of practical mods you can do to the Jeep. I would like some opinions of the more critical/useful items to accomplish a more outdoors manís man Jeep. Preferable ranked in the most useful vs cost. Also take into consideration I donít have unlimited funds, but at same time I donít want cheap crap that could cause me problems I prefer spend more now then keep fixing something.
What I have now.
2014 JK Unlimited base auto softop on 15s with 33s duratracs.
Iíve also ripped out the stereo entirely and replaced everything with complete sound system.
Iíve installed a tuffy box in trunk to secure my gear.
What Iím leaning towards to getting next in no particular order.
Front Bumper and Winch. After my buddy in his FJ had to winch to me 3 times this weekend I found out how crucial they can be.
Teraflex/AEV 2.5 Lift
Because photos make everything more interesting Iíll be adding photos as we go.
