Welcome to the world of jeeps

First Rule - never call your jeep a car.

2nd- pics or it did not happen.

Nobody can tell you what you NEED for your jeep. It's up to the driver. Is it looks or
function you are after?
Do you off road or purely street driven ?


Let's see some pics first

Great feeling owning a Jeep huh? Mines a month old and my first too

I lifted mine then did wheels/tires because I think for bigger tires you need the clearance or that's the excuse I used to get buddy to help. In between I did a bunch of DIY cheap mods found here, on my tablet and don't know how to post links search 'cheap mods' and you'll be busy for a while.

Congrats on the Jeep ~ pics please

Click on the + sign and then attach from photos. Choose a pic and done

Welcome! There will be mods you will be doing and wanting as long as you own your Jeep. Enjoy it and make it what you want it to be! AND most important, Don't forget to wave to other Wrangler's on the road! (The Wrangler Wave)
