Lightbulb First Jeep and Im Loving It.. Experiences? and Advice?

Hey Everyone,

I got my first Jeep 2 months ago and so far i'm loving it!! I purchased the Wrangler Unlimited 2013 Sport S and i've noticed i'm starting to turn it into a Sahara, I've added custom red leather seats and the 730n Nav (mixed reviews on that) and now i'm looking to make it unique and customize it offroad style but still a cool look and a good ride on-road which I will do 90% of the time.. Any Suggestions? (Lift, Tires, Paint, Exhaust, ANYTHING) I'm thinking nitto tires between 33-37; 3-4 in lift; & between XD or fuel wheels, & HID lights..

Ideas? Advice? Suggestions?

Love the red leather.

If you are going to spend that much time on the road, I would not go higher than 33's. You can go to 35's, but you are spending money on tire that you won't really use.


Red grab handles?

Paint or plasti-dip your tow hooks (front and rear) red?

Grill guard?

Get some red plasti-dip and go to town.

I was thinking 33's as well but I do like the look of 35's more w/ a lift..

Red Grab handles definitely!

Great idea for the plasti dip tow hooks.. looking into that NOW!

Considering a grill guard but nothing over the top..

Any tire brand recommendations?

She came used with 18inch wheels. I haven't done anything myself, but order rugged ridge grab handel. Not sure what to do with my blank slate either yet.

For a good quality on-road lift, you'll like the AEV 2.5 inch with the geometry correction brackets. You can run either 33s or 35s with that lift.

??? If you're speaking of the seats? I actually purchased those brand new from the dealer but I got them to give me a better deal than they usually would for leather install becaue they wanted the sale.. But thanks.. would love to see pics of yours!

I'll have to check that out.. Do you have any idea on the price range for a shop to install the lift?
