My '04 LJ is stock with except for some rocker guards and an engine skid. It's a daily driver and the most wheeling it has seen is one or two fire roads. Sure I get jeep envy when I drive by a heavily modded jeep, but I just don't have the disposable income to spend on a lift and tires. Just keep the cash you might have spent on upgrades and spend it keeping up with the maintenance (fluids, tire rotations, etc.) And most of all, enjoy the ride!

I am in the process of buying a house, so that's a no brainer for me. Eventually my Jeep will get a 2" lift, but then there is still this intense itch for my Mustang GT.

Hmmm, pretty much yes, I have stock suspension, stock engine, stock rims, stock seats, stock top, stock paint, stock stereo and the list goes on.


But I do have larger than stock tires, and have added a Bestop Instatrunk.

So if by the term completely stock you really mean completely stock, then no.

2000 TJ Sahara edition stock right now, except for replacing the old radio. Will be going on my first Jeep Jamboree in October. Planned mods before the Jamboree include: rear bumper replacement to get D-rings for recovery points; new tires to 31x10.5R15 (current stock tires are 30x9.5R15); removal of factory side steps and replace with rock sliders with tubular step located above the bottom of the tub; additional of oil pan skid plate. Stock already has a skid plates for transfer case and gas tank.

I've had my "10 sport for almost a month now and its still stock, I think I may keep it that way for a while. I can't see getting a lift as cash levels are on the lower side now. I may offroad a small bit, on easy easy trails. I see myself taking the Jeep on the beach more than in the woods, so I think the mods needed for that are considerably easier and cheaper.

I added some small things to the interior, "oh shit" handles, floor mats, a hood lock that is placed in the grill (cheap, and I dont even think it works, oh well)

Well it's been a little over a year since I started this thread and I have still not done a single mod to my Jeep. Perfect for me just the way it is. About 14,000 miles on her and not a single issue.

Stupid JK mods cost a fortune....

Jk mods are relatively cheap when compared to other vehicle brands. You cant put an aftermarket bumper on a nissan, toyota or rover thats under 800 bucks.

I'm very happy with my Jeep exactly as she is and plan to keep it that way. My '10 Rubi is stock except for Mopar tail light guards, fuel door cover, spare tire cover and upgraded headlights.

I've only taken it offroad once but I was amazed at how well it did. It even made it through sections where modified rigs were struggling.

I kind of agree with the point about higher resale value, or at least ease of sale for an unmodified Jeep that has been well maintained.

My perspective is that once you start modifying any vehicle, you are opening up a potential can of worms with incompatible parts that have not been tested or designed to work together. I'm sure some of the modified rigs are very capable, but it seems to take lots of work and money to get them to that point.

After reading through some threads I am also surprised to see how so many people's desire for more mods never seems to end. I wonder if that is really enjoying something for what it is, rather than seeking something more and not ever feeling truly satisfied.

Not trying to offend anyone who is into heavily modded Jeeps. I have a heavily modified motorcycle, so I can understand the rationale behind making it your own. But I guess I've reached a point in my life where I like to have something work for me out of the factory rather than spend lots of money and dollars on modifying it.

A very interesting synopsis, but I think you're not looking at the whole picture-

I have done a lot of things competitively and always strived for the BEST !!

This JKU is my 14th 4wd and I've racedem and wreckedem-this one I've modified to what I WANT for MY LIFESTYLE and I'm fairly satisfied at this point, but The urge/twinge/desire for a little more is always there and has been in man forever-

Maybe you never built model airplanes and flew radio controlled planes==always wanting to update-for speed/control/dependability/safety !!

I have expensive hobbies and the jeep is probably the cheapest, but I'm always planning on an upgrade for camping access/self sustaining fuels/recovery/food/trailer--the never ending story-

I never modified my corvettes--no reason forit !!

This jeep has a lotta reasons forit !!

It's your jeep and maybe an extension of your inner self--don't ya think ??

Kinda funny...my Jeep right now is bone stock (2006 LJ)...but there's a TON I want to do to it. My motorcycle, on the other hand, has only had a few mods done to it...saddlebags, touring windscreen, handlebar risers, centerstand...and I'm done...no desire for anything else. In other words mods that are actually useful and thats it. Seems like just about every mod I see for a Jeep is something that increases the usefulness of it.

Jimbo, I agree that a vehicle can be very much an extension or reflection of one's personality and soul. This is my first Jeep and so far I've developed a bond with it unlike any of the cars I've previously owned.

I've been into motorcycles for a long time, and that's exactly how I feel about them. My bike is an extension of myself and my personality.

However, I found myself constantly wanting to modify my motorcycle to make it better and better. While some of the mods definitely improved the bike, sometimes it was more about the desire to mod and that itch that needed scratching. So I started wondering if it's better to enjoy the ride in the moment, rather than thinking about what to do next or how to make it better.

Anyway, that's just my point of view. Different strokes for different folks. I appreciate all the Jeeps I see on the road, modified or not (except the ones with excessive chrome or bling, sorry ).

Some ofem look downright STUID !, but the owner of that jeep definately has reasons for the mods-

Well, I love my Jeep and I want to make sure it is protected. I am not planning on lifting or putting on larger tires because I like the way it looks in that regards. But I do want to take it off road and to do that I want to make sure that not only myself is ready but the Jeep is. So my mods are really not mods but what is needed for that. A winch, so a bumper that can handle a winch, and armor to protect what Jeep didn't.

Oh an a new radio.

So what qualify as 'mods'? This thread needs some ground rules ;-)..

Picked ours up 4/25:


The next day we put 300+ miles on it, wanted to check out Unionville NV (listed on various sites as a ghost town..but meh). about 80 of those on dirt roads a few requiring 4wd.. .couple of places 4lo was handy. We've got plans for various accessories (spare tire basket, saddlebags, ram mount(s) and the like)..

When I think MODS I think specifically modifying factory equipment either by replacing (wheels/tires) or modifying (budget lifts and the like).

I think I'll still be in the stock club for a very very long time, wife and I primarily go out to explore old mines (we don't go in, just take pics) and rockhound.. the jeep is as far we're concerned the perfect vehicle for our needs. Now if our usage changes (as things do!) maybe it'll get mods.. for now we're proud members of the stocker club (seems there's an acronym waiting to happen for this).

A friendly sign from a mine claim (east of Lovelock NV):
