Smile Just picked er up!

Hey everyone!
I just bought a 2009 Wrangler X w/10,000 miles a couple days ago, and just picked it up! Already have a couple mod's in so far:
Raceline wheels
Dick Cepek FC-II 35x12.5
6" longarm lift
Chrome sidestep
Chrome grill
Leather seats(Came with it)
All weather mat's

I'm looking for some ideas on the next mod's that I should do! Maybe some new bumpers?

Any tips are appreciated!
I'm also looking for some good trails around southern mass-

Thanks
-Brandon


And of course pictures are below(Some dealer pics before I drove it off the lot, then some at home! (That's me in the 3rd to last pic) If someone could "Clickfree" these for me I'd appreciate it!

Thanks everyone!
Boosta- That's high on my list, any recommendations for a rear bumper w/ tire carrier? as I don't think the 35's will fit?

Dude, there are PLENTY of bumper choices. My recommendation is one that fits your budget, style and add a spare tire carrier.

www.quadratec.com hasa lot of choices. This will get you started on the journey of Jeep insanity! LOL! Enjoy!

New driveshafts should go to the top of your list with a 6" lift.

Nice jeep! You should put some tow points on the front and rear bumper. Use a dremel to cut the holes for the hooks in the front bumper. I did that to my jeep. For both front and rear hooks it took about 2 hours but it is definitely worth it

JKjeeper- where do I get the actual hooks? Seems easy enough to cut out..

And just installed a set of dana 44s in the front and rear, along with Rusty's offroad coils, some bilstein 5100 shocks, terraflex front and rear drive shafts, new sway bar system in front and rear, and a brake upgrade. Me and my buddy were able to bang everything out in little over 2 days, with the help of a few other friends. Glad I had the help of some jeep friends, or I would have had to pay WAY more than helping a buddy install a lift on his own jeep this weekend..

Next up is a set of Smittybuilt XRC bumpers, with a rear swing out carrier for that full size spare. Any other suggestions?


-Brandon
