Got my '12 JK sport on 4/22. I have done alot of reading on WR. Great forum lots of good info, thanks.
My factory options are, auto, AC, 3.73s and Sirius radio. Bought the Jeep for around 2.5% below invoice, dealer had to get the Jeep from a dealer 130 miles away.
The following is what I have done to it and why.
Factory steps: Bought them online for $280, I have two small kids so the steps were a must, I know they are not the toughest but they are good for my useage and I really like the looks with the factory flares.
Suspension: Origionally I ordered a Teraflex leveling kit fron QT but thankfully it was backordered, after a little more research I cancelled the order and bought a set of new take off JKU springs. I had 14s, and 55s stock, I changed out to 18s, and 58s. I also bought a set of Rubicon take of shocks from the same seller. They sell on eBay. $215 for both shipped.
Install took about 3 hours, I did it myself one night after dinner. The spring and shock change added 1.5" of lift in the front and 3/4" of lift in the rear. The ride is much more controlled with much less body roll.
Wheels and tires: I know everyone likes the smaller wheels, I personally like the stock 17" wheels and I need to keep the wheels inside the fenders to be able to get an inspection sticker, I also like that they are hub centric.
I bought a set of take off 17" sport wheels and a set of Toyo P285/70/17 tires, being P rated they are only 44 lbs each, I bought the wheels from a forum member for $250 and the tires from www.treaddepot.com
for $178 each. I am very happy with both.
The JK is a daily drive that my wife drives, the kids can get into and out of easily, and still drives like stock. I can notice a decrease in acceleration with the change in tires but it is worth it from a looks standpoint. I am very happy with everything I have done so far, next I plan on adding some driving lights and a couple other little things.
Below are some pictures, stock and after the "mods".
