10A 4dr billet/red, these parts are already in the garage waiting.

Dick Cepek FC-II 285/70-17, 5 of them.
AEV pintler beadlocks, grey.
Teraflex pre-runner kit with Fox remote res. shocks.
Artec axle truss and gussets-full armor kit, front, Artec truss rear.
JKS adjustable track bars front & rear.
Teraflex tailgate hinge assembly.
Decideing about which winch until info comes out. If there is no special edition winch then it will probably be a Warn powerplant if that fits in the factory bumper cut out, if not then the 9.5.

That's about it until summer then I might be looking into some LED lighting.

Why the pre runner kit? I like what I have sen as far as marketing from Teraflex for that kit but what does it compromise on for offroad handling. Anything you can educate me on about it I would appreciate it.

Serious huh, that's trusting but I know how that can go. If I knew someone that was waaaay ahead of me in knowledge in that area I would probably do the same but with less money and specify I would want the coolest tech not simply the loudest.

Maybe invest in a Top line Viper scrutiny system with dual stage proximity sensor and two way pager.

I am in to home theater and Hi-fi 2 channel systems, and as such, I think the speaker placement in the JK is horrendous. I'm not sure you can get a "great" stereo system in a Jeep w/o repositioning the speakers.

I'm using the pre-runner because I want speed off-road with comfort. I'm not really into rock crawling. I use my Jeeps to tow behind my motorhome on vacations. When out west in Wyoming, Colorado and Montana I find myself on a lot of fire trails and back country trails (two tracks through the grass). Usually to visit ghost towns or deserted mines from the late 1800's.

When doing this with my old '01 Cherokee anything over about 5 mph and your head would hit the roof hard enough to make a dent. Not to mention that it was hard on the whole vehicle overall. Check out the Teraflex videos demonstrating the pre-runner, I should be able to up my speed in these areas to 25mph with ease and comfort. This can mean seeing many more places in the limited time of vacation, especially when they are 30-50 miles off-road.

Shouldn't be any compromise to on road handling anymore than other lifts. The major difference is Speedbumps, limiting straps for down travel and shocks. The new kit has adjustable control arms to dial in your caster to improve the on road side compared with a straight spring lift.

Looking to have it ready to head for Montana and Glacier National Park this summer. May come back through the Bad lands for the second time and do some exploring.

EDIT - Also adding an M&G tow brake system, Mopar flat tow wiring harness and a Blue Ox base plate for towing.

Heck most of the young Airmen I work with drive better cars (mine is the only jeep) than the older NCO's. Of course my Jeep is the coolest thing in the parking lot. But these young kids these days have all the money.

Never judge a person's financial worth or ability by age. Never!

I came out of high school in '82 as a certified mechanic making 15 per hr. I did this through hard work after school and gaining my certs as a teenager. A year later I went to work at an aircraft factory. Within 30 days I was the department leadman and within 45 days I was swing shift supervisor with a nice salary.

Age doesn't neccessarily put a person in the normal pigeon hole. It depends on the person, their circumstances and abilities within their chosen field.

I owned my own successful business by age 23. I've owned and operated several business profitably and sold them at a profit to get where I am today. Really makes me angry when people want to call me wealthy or say I don't understand what it's like to be poor or have it ruff. I worked HARD and LONG for what I've achieved in life.

Don't judge a person on their age, it's short sighted.

LOL, not at this time. I have managed to weather the economic storm since 2008 without laying off any employees, which I consider a pretty good thing! I even gave the entire crew a pay raise on Jan. 1rst for the third year in a row.

If your planning on LED headlights, its much easier before you get a winch up against the grill!

I'm 20 years old and I'm a local 3 elevator mechanic and have a supplemental weekend job. Don't make assumptions.

Not that it would apply to anyone here, but I have also known folks that have many VERY, VERY nice things. Two years later, they do not and they are broke. It's not hard to buy expensive stuff anymore, but it is difficult to keep it.

FWIW, my father was a self made millionaire at the age of 30 (certainly not as hard as it used to be) and to this day he has never spent more than $15K on a vehicle purchase
