Finally a Jeep owner!

Just bought an 08 jk unlimited and can't get enough. Already being yelled at for buying so much stuff for it. Daily driver so no lift but maybe more aggressive tires because I can. Any input on mods and tires appreciated. Thanks!

Congrats on the purchase jeeps are a blast. Try the teraflex leveling kit it gave me 2 inches in the front and 1 in the back. If you don't want to lift it this is a great option it gives the jeep a good stance.

Congrats and welcome! I think most of us have been questioned about spending so much on upgrades. I agree on the TF leveling kit. Have one on mine and love it.
Improved the stance.

Congratulations......I got the same grin every time driving my own 08JK!

Don't need much to keep you going.....a few little things you can fabricate yourself, perhaps headlight upgrade (see huge threads on this).

I ran mine to 25000 on the OEM Duelers before changing tires.
No lift, no spacers, I like the 18" OEM rims just fine.

Be prepared to have some fun.
