I'm not entirely sure what defines as a Mod.. But to me a mod is really something major done to the Jeep.. So if this is the case No I haven't done any mods to our 08 Wrang.. Thou I have removed the rear seat, removed the carpeting, Installed Mud Guards and fixed the antenna.. Mind you the Jeep came with BFG Mud Terrain Tires from the get go.

Zero mods thus far. I figured I spent so much money on a new truck, I should enjoy it as is for a little bit. That way, when I make upgrades I'll actually appreciate the difference.

Getting ready to pull the trigger on wheels and tires soon, though. RR Satin Black 17x9 with GY DuraTrac 285/70-17's.

Bought my 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited in June of 2011. After much consultation with my accountant-wife-I was given $500 for my birthday for the mods for it.12 hours later the steps, grab handles and slush mats were ordered and on the way. I have the sickness and am planning more. My wife just rolls her eyes when I mention things for my Jeep. This forum rocks and my worst enemy.

Not planning on doing any major mods such as suspension/tires. Thats why i bought the Ruby MW3, it came with everything i needed. Maybe a winch down the line somewhere. Maybe a bikini top, have a hard top now.

Santa's wishlist

Many mods in my head, my wallet says otherwise
So far I've gone the cheap route... as in pulling the carpet to get prepped for bedliner.

Until the title is in my hand, I don't mod a vehicle that I don't "own"...lol...and yes, my 08 is stock...and my wife says it will stay that way, since it is mostly hers for driving. I've got others to beat up off-road.

Haven't even ordered mine yet, and have mods in hand.

I'm not planning anything major though- it'll be my DD/"Dad's car," so I mostly have storage/comfort mods in mind. And a new bike rack!

Pulled back seat, carpets, run topless rain or shine, and did the $5 poly-fil in the soundbar experiment. Other than that, I like it how it is

I picked up my JKUR on Sept 13th, 2011 and it still sits stock (other than the flipped rear-view mirror). Figured I'd drive/wheel it that way for a year to easily diagnose issues and have them fixed under warranty... However, after visiting this and other forums...

In my garage, I have:
(4) SpiderTrax 1.5" Spacers
Smittybilt Extended Brief Top and Windshield channel
5 cans of black Plasti-Dip and masking tape for my wheels and hinges
a Lange Hoist-a-Top

Once the Temps here in Houston go down a bit, I'll knock all this stuff out... but right now... forget that!

I ordered a set of ACE Sliders last week from KrawlOff-Road... so they should show up sometime in the next couple of weeks.

Phase 2 will be a 2.5" TeraFlex lift and Window Tint
Phase 3 will be some 35" Tires (undecided... BFG or Nitto likely)
Phase 4 will be a JCR Crusader FW bumper w/Bull Bar and AEV Rear bumper w/Tire Carrier
Phase 5 will be a winch, S-Pod and lights, lights and more lights.
Phase 6 will be Trek Armor seat covers, Smittybilt MOLLE tailgate cover
Phase Infinity: odds and ends... forever...

The only mod that I've done was after 9 months of ownership and that was a 14" billit antenna. I do have plans for it however.

I just joined the Jeep crowd. Just picked up a used low mileage 2010 Wrangler Unlimited Sport; had it for four days. It seems to be completely stock! Haven't even gotten to turning the mirror upside down!

Whomever owned it before me seems to have never used it. Well, expect to lose the second ignition key.

Mostly I have been reading about bike racks. Probably go with the spare tire mount, even given the concerns about weight, I won't be using it very often.

Were you looking for a stock 2010? Would you have paid more for a modded one?

I am curious because when I go to buy a used car (not wrangler) like a honda or civic, as soon as I see the coffee can exhaust and tacked on rear spoiler I move on to the next one.

I often wonder if it is the same with used Wranglers.

Do people who radically change from stock, pull stuff off before resale or do they get a premium for the upgrades?

Some of the mods or add-ons would have been fine. I wasn't looking for a rock crawler, mostly a DD with some camping, dirt roads, mud thrown in. I was finally looking to replace my old 1990 S-10 4x4 (which hasn't run for a while, 240,000 miles).

I will need to add/change a few things down the road. Eventually I will need a hitch, but not right away. Roof rack maybe. The stubby antenna. Maybe pull the carpet from the back.

Start with small stuff first before biting off to much. That's my motto.

I lifted my 09 JKUR with 260 miles on it. 4.5 long arm Mopar kit, and 37's.

I lifted my 12JKUR before I ever took delivery 4.5 AEV and 37's, and then a LOT MORE, and then sold it with 634 miles on it.

I ordered a 2013 JKUR, and almost sent it off to AEV for a turn key build, but didn't get the drop ship code to my dealer in time, and the JK is now in a rail car headed to it's new home up here in WA. I will be taking it home stock. I actually am looking forward to it. I don't like the way a JK looks stock, but I am anxious to see how it compares in daily use vs. my older JK's on 37's.

I ordered a Gecko Jeep, so I can't imagine it will be that boring stock!

You need to find something you like and keep mentioning it until she says she likes it. My wife has picked all my mods so far, so she thinks.

my JKU is 3 weeks old today. No real "mod's" yet but within a day I bought the bestop soft window storage, a wheel cover, side mirrors for when i'm doorless. Next is a locking fuel cap, towing hitch, canvasback cargo liner. Then new thule set up for hauling my Mad River 17' canoe when I put the hard top on. (Wish I could find a set-up for the soft top without spending big $) Then comes some fun stuff. What that will be, who knows but thats the fun of owning a Jeep. This is my first one and I'm so happy with it, I think Ill wait till I need to boost the fun factor. Of course, if I wait for the excitement to wain before I add real Mod's, I'll never buy anything haha
