I think my mods are done - (pics)

I bought my 2011 last year after a pretty bad snow storm, and tired of getting stuck in my rear wheel car. I swore when I bought it I would keep it stock!

After a few upgrades I was addicted, but made some mistakes along the way. There is a lot truth in the statement in "planning your mods!" I've had a few mods I've removed due to other/better upgrades and now I wish I went with the 35" over the 33" - Oh well! All in All I think I'm DONE!

2.5" Teraflex
Bilstein 5160's
AEV Front bumper
Rampage Rear Bumper
Hemi 5.7 from BOR
TMD Hood
Spidertrax spacers/KM2's/Rugged Ridge 17"
Piaa Fog and Driving lamps
And other stuff

Love the Hemi and your Jeep looks awesome...BUT never say your done LOL.

At least for me, i keep saying those words and still ended up buying stuff to make my Jeep better.

What specs are those wheels? And how big are the wheel spacers?
I like the stance!

From Burnsville Offroad (as mentioned by the OP), I'd expect about $24k for the conversion to a new 5.7 and transmission.

You can still get it. It's not a factory option, you do it aftermarket.

There are companies that use used engines/transmissions, and those run about $13k. My understanding is that the conversion the OP did was with all new gear and costs around $24k on top of the cost of the jeep.

If you've got the cash you can get it done too. Google "Burnsville offroad."

What is the backspacing of your wheels? That tire looks like it's sticking out alot. With a Hemi pushing that rubber, the wheel spacers may be a bad idea.

ETA: she does look sweet though

My thoughts exactly. Great looking Jeep, but with that offset, spacers are not needed (unless you are trying to get the FS axle look).

Love the front Bumper.

Looking at your Jeep from the front, it looks like it is capable of eating one of the small cars for lunch.
