Simple changes

Hi all. New to the forum and just have a couple questions. I will look around the site while I wait for someone to help out.


I am getting a 2011 wrangler sport.

Does it have bluetooth? In pictures I see a phone button on top of the stereo

What are the largest wheels and tires I can put on the Jeep without any mod.

If I was to get a small lift, can I revert back to original if I give the jeep back at the end of the lease? What type of lift would be best to maintain center gravity?

Navigation, any recommendations?

How easy is it to take out the back seat?

bluetooth- depends on the package the sport comes with, it's case by case basis...

largest tires- 33" wheels- what ever you want that fits in 33" and has correct bolt pattern

revert back to original?- not sure if serious question, but yes you can revert back to stock height

nav recs- none

back seat removal- easier than lifting your own arm

welcome to the forums and congrats on the jeep!

welcome to the forum!

I am getting a 2011 wrangler sport.

Does it have bluetooth? In pictures I see a phone button on top of the stereo you can get the "UConnect" feature. if you don't get that feature, then no...

What are the largest wheels and tires I can put on the Jeep without any mod.

Navigation, any recommendations?
sorry no recommendations... with nav on every cell phone these days... and it's a Jeep you're supposed to get lost once in a while...

How easy is it to take out the back seat?
it's simple, fold the seat up and lift the latch... no pictures, but i take mine out at least once a week. might take all of about 5 minutes.

Lift - personally I subscribe to the low center of gravity method. Basically just enough lift to clear the tires with no rubbing a full flex. Currently running 33" tires and a Teraflex leveling kit. Next step will be 35" tires, flat fenders and the same leveling kit.

Navigation - there are better after market options. The factory navigation is expensive and limited!

I agree with a leveling kit/BB. 4 spacers that sit on top of the stock coils. You want back to stock? just remove them.
Leveling kits typically lift and level the jeep by putting 2" in the front and 1" in the rear.
Extend the rear sway links with new one's. The rear links can be moved to the front. Bumpstop extensions are also included (maybe included) <<---- edit


Good luck.

kjeeper's talking about something like this:

http://www.quadratec.com/products/16...googlemerchant

$130 from Quadratec, and it'll allow you to clear 33" tires with no rubbing off-road (although you'll need new wheels with 4.5" backspacing or less to clear the new sway bar links that come with the kit).

To get a better understanding of tires/wheels – which cause peeps a lot of problems – read this by thread by our esteemed colleague 4fit:

Largest tire on stock JK? Here's your answer!
