I've had mine since December 2010 and had the title for about 6 months. I've bought a house with garage, had two kids (two car seats installed), harken hoist, wheel locks, spiderweb cage, locking hood, aftermarket alarm with motion sensors, spare cover, and have Procomp 7069s sitting in the garage waiting to be installed with new tires. Still feel like I haven't done much and is still stock underneath. An addiction comparable to heavy drug, addictive and expensive. I'm waiting to wear out the stock 29s before changing the wheels /tires to 33s

Have had my 10A since April '13 and have done zip/zilch/zero mods to it other than a spiderweb shade which isn't really a mod to me. No plans on modding at all

No mods for me. The only thing I'm really thinking of is getting a short antenna. Or just simply removing it since I don't use the radio anyway except to play my iPod. Didn't even bother activating the free Sirius subscription.

I did recently buy a cover since it'll be sitting outside for months at a time without being driven. A victim of my work schedule/location.

Congrats to all you have zero mods! I wish I had the will power.

Zero mods means a more reliable JK and a fatter wallet.

What qualifies as a 'mod'? I'll be adding RAM mount point(s), grab handles, saddlebag... I figure those are accessories, not mods....

I bought mine right around when this thread was started. Bought a soft top, take-off Rubicon rails, and a shorty antenna. Since then...left the military, relocated to be near family, working for peanuts because the market out here is awful. Hoping to find something better before winter so I can upgrade my wheels/tires, since the OE tires (little sport tires) will be about due for replacement anyway.

My future plans include 17s and 33s (probably 35s down the road), regear and rear locker, bumpers and a winch, probably a BB, and ACE sliders. And headlights, preferably the JW Speakers.

I'm basically stock after owning it for 3 months. I've done the grill mesh mod ($18), bestop center console lock box ($74), polyfill mod (free!), and grab handles ($16). All money well spent!

Bone stock 2014 JKUS.
New 1-2-14.
Wheeled it all the way across Chimmney Rock Road AR, up/down Yankee Boy Basin, up mineral creek road, up/down engineer pass, up/down cinnamon pass, across hurricane, corkscrew, California passes, California gulch, all the way to the tip top of lost canyon.
Woulda done black bear & Imogene but they weren't open ...
~13k miles on the odometer, ~2k off pavement. Drive it to work every day, 40 miles round trip. No intentions of deviating from stock.

From what I understand, I'm still stock...but I have added to my new JKU (picked him up 6 days ago):

cargo mat, floor mats (4), cell phone holder on my dash (love this for IPhone navigation), mini trash can with two cup holders for the back row

In my home, waiting to be installed:
sill protectors, grab handles, and a stubby AntennaX (It bugs me to see the stock one flinging back and forth when I exit or enter the garage).

Next on the wish list:
hitch extender, hitch-mounted cargo carrier, MAX TRAXX for the beach this summer, and a hardtop hoist

Bought it in Oct. 2012. Has 25k on it. No mods ( other than addition of plastic weather-tech window vents ). Only mod would definitely do would be a MAJOR horsepower / torque increase, either 5.7 hemi or LS motor (427?). Just waiting for the winning lottery #'s to git r done.

One month in (JKU 2013) and no mods

Up in Gatineau Quebec. Waiting till I get to a larger US city where Jeep parts are more plentiful. Might be in Philly soon for a week.

But, not unhappy with the basic stock Sport package.

Interesting point!

I had some issues with the Jeep with about 14,000 miles on the clock, and the first dealer I took it too put it on the rack and walked around it and looked at everything. Then they started making a list of "do nots" including the scratches on my skid plates from where I had "obviously been offroad", my bigger wheels/tires, the fact that I had changed my own gear oil and they could tell the diff. cover had been off, blah blah blah. Basically tried every way in the world to get out of doing warranty work.

So I went to another dealership, and they also refused to do any work on the Jeep, even though they KNEW what the problem was, and knew how to fix it, until Chrysler gave them direct permission and assurance that it would be covered under warranty. I ended up being without my Jeep for 7 days and about 30 phonecalls back and forth between Chrysler and the dealership. I was getting close to calling my lawyer and finally Chrysler fixed my Jeep.

All of that over 285/75s, a 3/4" leveling kit, the fact that I'd done my own service work on the Jeep and had been up under it, and scrapes on the skid plates.

So this time around I'm ONLY doing things that can easily be removed before going to the dealership. If I have any problems with this Jeep, I don't want to give them any reason to give me warranty grief. It's not worth it. The warranty is too valuable.
I was thinking of mods to do. I bought a spider shade, took out my carpet because I want to go topless all summer, and planning to take out backseat...I was wanting to get windshield mounted KC lights and possibly mess with my grill, but to do the lights u have to drill a hole for the switch...I didn't even think about warranty!! I agree with u in possibly just doing things that are removable until the jeep is out of Warranty. I just purchased a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Sport with the biggest wheels you can get stock, back in I'm still happy with it at this point! Harmless mods like light guards are good enough for me!

I did headlights after a few months. Waited over a year to do diff covers and winch.

That is all so far.

I bought my '14 JKU Sahara on Dec 22, 2014. I have done ZERO actual mods. I have bought a few accessories - Quadratec floor mats and door sill protectors, a ProClip mount for my iPhone, and I just ordered some decals.

I'm going to replace the tan colored Sahara decal with a black one. I also ordered some US flags to mount on the sides. I may do a plastidip treatment on the Jeep logo on the grill. Debating on whether to buy grill inserts or do the DIY version. These things aren't really 'mods', just little changes.

So far, I'm good with zero mods.

I bought my first Jeep last week, a 2015 Unlimited Willys Wheeler. I love everything but the hard top. Yeah it's great with the cold weather but it's warming up now and I'm looking at a soft top option. Only thing I've done is added a sticker...

Got it on friday it looked like this...

If I had a rubicon hard rock I wouldnt have done any mods. But the car tires that came on my base model were quite sad.

I think we should all mod them that is part of the jeep life. #jeeplife

I'm not planning major mods. Swapping the stock tires for stock size Duratracs. Looking at a ham and CB radio setup. Will add the tow hitch myself instead of paying $400 for a factory install. Same thing with the head liner. But I have been thinking about some of the gas can brackets. Driving North of 60 and figure spare gas jerries when exploring are a good idea. Also will be getting a roof rack. I wonder if there are purists opinions on what is a modded and what is stock? Change anything and it's no longer stock but if it isn't a lift, larger tires, armour, and winch, it's not a real mod?
