I'd just be happy with a full size spare and an instatrunk.

1) Winch (arriving tomorrow)
2) Lift (parts sitting in the garage)
3) New bumbers (front & rear)
4) New springs and shocks
5) remote start & alarm
6) air compressor & set of air-downs

OK, that should cover me for a few weeks.

1) 5:13 regearing

2) Flat Fenders

3) 37" tires

4) RIPP Supercharger
Careful on the gearing. Usually folks over gear the 3.8 engine to take advantage of the higher RPM power available, however my recollection is that RIPP doesn't recommend regearing quite as high as you normally would if going with their supercharger. Bottomline - If you haven't already, call Ripp before picking out a gear ratio.

My understanding is that the 15" soft 8s won't fit without spacers. If you're going with a 15" wheel, you'll have better luck with alloys.

What I'd like to do is underbody armor/skids and back-up and rock lights, but that's gonna wait until the weather gets warmer.

I'll may do heated seats. Still contemplating leather.

Thanks for the heads up MTH. I shall start looking elsewhere.

There is plenty choices that resemble that wheel. Any of the Black Rock/MT's
The MB72 is very common and will fit.

No problem of course, but keep in mind that's just my recollection--I don't actually have soft 8s. Shoot a PM to DTD to confirm what fits and what doesn't. You should do that generally with any 15" wheel, as there are many that won't work on a JK. I just got new wheels, but my second choice wheel was the Level 8 Tracker, which bears a resemblance to the soft 8s. Also consider the MB72 noted by kjeeper. They both definitely fit.

Awesome thanks guys. I have been looking at the MB72's as well. If I do that it will be exactly like ESP's. Sorry man. At least my Jake is Black and not Silver, lol.
