Anyone here drive a completely stock Jeep Wrangler

I don't off road it and I don't plan on a single mod. It's my DD and I bought it because the winters can be brutal where I reside. I figure it will get more $$ when I get rid of it because it will be all ready for someone else to make it their own. By the way it's a 2010 Sport and I love riving this thing. Waited a long time for a Jeep and the first 2000 miles have been a blast.

welcome to the forum. the hubby and i are the stereotypical jeep people: we have several and they are all modded and wheeled. but there is nothing wrong with keeping it stock. they are fun to drive regardless of whether they stock or 6' in the air.

x2 on what jgano said. My jeep was stock for the first 3 years I owned it. Just as much fun then as it is now.

My TJ is still stock with the exception of different wheels and slightly bigger tires. And it is still a blast to drive, enjoy the ride!

My 09 is stock at this point. I have chosen some wheels and tires for it, just gotta put the cash together.
Mine is my Daily Driver as well, so I more than likely won't lift it, but it is capable of easily handling the local trails I've taken it on, straight from the factory.

its only the lack of money that is keeping them stock.....

My '09 JK is stock except for a motion sensor alarm I bought thru the dealer (my mistake) and a Hidden Hitch Reciever I use to carry my bike rack. I doubt I'll change anything until the stock tires wear out. I do bayou inspection in it (bayou=drainage channel, for you northerners), but otherwise haven't done any real off-roading. Yet. Only wish it had TJ style passenger seatbase and bigger/taller console. Got it August 29th and have 5843 miles on it.

Our 2009 Unlimited X is stock except for I changed out the stock tires to 245/75R16 Nokian Vatiiva ATs. With the 6-speed manual and 3.73 gears, that tire size seems to be optimal, actually giving better power and acceleration than it had with the 225/75R16s. I think it is because it keeps the engine in the meat of the torque curve instead of letting it rev past it so quickly. That size is also nice because it is a "stock" setting on the Chrysler StarScan tool, so your dealer can flash your computer so everything works with the new tires. By the way, I live in Alaska, and there has been nowhere that I wanted to go that I have not been able to get there in our stock JK.

Welcome to WF.

My suspension is stock. It's a Rubicon, need I say more? Eventually it will be lifted and have larger tires. But it rocks out of the box. Yeeeeeeha.

Yep, but that is likely to change. I took a few "side trips" while in Kanab, Utah to see some Indian pictographs and fossilized dinosaur tracks... soft sand "adventures" have me wanting a locking differential.

I think you are sorta right. I don't know if selling an unmodified jeep will get you any more money but it will probably sell more quickly than one that has been modified. Buying

That said, that kind of thinking is only reasonable if you bought the jeep with resale and resale value in mind.... you're basically taking care of it for the next guy who probably will mod it up. I gave up on that kind of thinking some time ago.... I buy things to use the way I want to use them. If that lowers the resale value, so be it.

At what point is a Wrangler no longer stock? I would say when you add a suspension lift for sure, but what else? Bumpers? Shocks? Rock rails? Lights? Can a stock suspension Wrangler ever be considered modified?

Mine is stock as well. Other than some sweet Mopar floormats (oooo!) I figure I wont spend any money on upgrades until later. Might as well spend the money I would spend on the upgrades towards paying it off sooner...so that I might start upgrading it sooner and not end up spending more than I have to in interest. It's that whole "youll be better off in the end if you wait"

Except for some Rugged Ridge mats and Daystar rubber pieces to stop the hood flutter my 09 Rubicon is stock as a rock. I really like the look of the 2 1/2in lifts and 33-35's but doubt I'll be doing that anytime soon.

This is my 4th Jeep. First was a 71 CJ5 225 Buick V6 that I wish I still had. Second was a 2000 TJ sport 4.0L Third was a 2002 Cherokee Limited but that one doesn't really count as a "Jeep" and now a 09 JK Rubicon. I gotta say, they've come ALONGGGGG way since my 71 CJ5.

Having been with and without a "Jeep" I can say this with certainty, having even a stock Jeep is always better than no Jeep.

Mine is bone stock except for the Mopar Jeep rubber floor mats I added and a spare tire cover with the word 'Jeep' in the center. I bought the jeep so I don't have to drive my GMC diesel dually everywhere I go and I needed the four wheel drive for the winter mountain roads around here and to get up my steep driveway that has a 20% grade when it ices up.

Mine is stock and will most likely remain that way. I don't do any heavy duty off-roading. Just the occasional trails to find fishing and hunting spots so there is no need to lift it since it is my daily driver.

Stock? In terms of not having it lifted or over-sized tires, then, Yes. In terms of "Does it look like it did when I drove it off of the lot?", then, No! My Signature shows some of the Mods I've done, but my recent Tire Upgrade are the same size Tires as the Stock 255/75R/17's.

CONGRATS on your New Vessel, and ENJOY!

Pics, when you can!

Cheers!

I don't plan to "get rid" of my Jeep; I suppose that's why I'm not reluctant to modify it.
I'll drive it into the ground and then get another I guess. Diesel next time.

Other than some minor cosmetic changes, and a couple of radio installs, mines the same as when I drove it off the lot.

I will hopefully be getting my '10 Sport Unlimited in a few weeks (ordered) and don't plan on doing anything significant to it aside from minor cosmetic things here and there. It'll be my daily driver and I don't plan on doing much rock-crawling.

I'm with you on that CTJeepGuy. There are some things I want to do so that I can still take it out here and there and have some fun...but I dont plan on taking it mud crawling or swimming through a pond or anything. I would like to adventure on some dirt road scenic tour kinda things where there may be some rough terrain but nothing that a Stocker shouldnt be able to handle.

But agreed, mostly cosmetic changes is what I'm looking for. And of course a new set of speakers for sound quality improvements

My first jeep was bone stock, an 87 yj with a 4banger and a manual stick. Red outside and grey inside. Lived in NY at the time and kept the top and doors off for months, pulled it into the garage at night. Drove it for 100k miles and like an idiot I sold it. Wished I have kept it for my son, now 21, to build together. Jeeps are alot like Harleys, aren't they? Blank canvas when you get them, fully able to be enjoyed as is, but loads of options to make them personal. Enjoy your jeep and keep your kids in mind beforre you sell, if ever!

What size speakers fit in the JK?

I have the speakers on the rollbar, and the doors, as well as the little tweeters on the dash. Is that all there is?

t.j.k Yes, those are the only speakers in the Jeep. You can get a speaker package for around 400 bucks or so. The stock ones that are in the JK's are pretty crummy. They dont have much for range which causes loss of a lot of clear quality sound.

I dont know the exact sizes to be honest. Since I dont have the money I havent really looked into it. A coworker of mine who sits next to me at work has an 07 JK which he put alpine speakers in as well as an amp to give it some boost. He also went overboard a bit and put some $800 touch screen radio unit in there as well. His Ipod hooks up to it and he can interface from the screen to control his songs and stuff from his stashed away Ipod. Pretty neat...damn expensive lol. For now I just want some new friggin speakers lol

I have the nav system that came with the sound system upgrade. I don't know what speakers they are in my Rubicon Unlimited but they are not the same as the ones in the Sahara Unlimited I had for 9 months. It sounds awesome right out of the box. It was worth the price of the upgrade on the sticker.

T.J.K.!

6-1/2"-6-3/4" Speakers in the Lower Dash and Soundbar, and 1" Tweeters in the Upper Dash Tombstones fit the JK's. Yes, the six speakers you mentioned above are all of the Speakers, unless you have the Sub-Woofer in the back as well. BTW, you mentioned you have yours in the Doors. Did you mean the Dash?

If you'll look at my Signature, you'll see the Sound Upgrades I've done. Makes a WORLD of difference!

Best of Luck!

JK'N!

Most likely, you have the 6-1/2" Infinity Speakers, with the 368 Watt Amp Upgrade.

Cheers!
