Ok JK Shoppers I'm going to use some of the money from selling some of my non-Jeep related toys to... what else? Upgrade the Jeep.
I don't have too many mods yet...
2012 JKU Cosmos Blue Sport with 3.21 Auto
2.5" RE coil lift
35" Tires on Procomp SERIES 7036 wheels
Mopar soft top (hard top hanging in garage)
Terraflex HD hinge oversize spare carrier
Viair 300p portable compressor
Currie air down tool (very fast)
Smittybilt compact shovel
Smittybilt 30ft recovery strap
As far as Jeep usage it is a daily driver that I put about 17k miles a year on. It only goes off-road 10-15 times a year at legal locations such as Uwharrie OHV, Brown Mountain OHV, any other OHV parks I can find and of course the Beach at Corolla. I have the dreaded 3.21 axle ratio and 35" tires but honestly it doesn't bother me much with the Pentastar oomph and stirring the auto-stick to keep it in the gear I want but I've put re-gear in the list because I probably will eventually want to do that.
So I'm not a big wheeler but I really enjoy taking the kids out for weekends on novice to moderate trails where I'm not too concerned about not being able to make the 2 hour drive back home. I've been concerned about going places without other Jeepers present due to not having any recovery equipment of my own but since the Jeep is on the street 95% of the time wheeling prowess and self-recovery aren't necessarily the highest things on my list.
Here are the list of mods I'm considering and I'm interested in how the community would vote on the list so I've created a poll.
Truck-Lite LED Headlights
Posion Spyder Brawler bumper
Superwinch Talon synthetic line Winch
Bushwacker Flat Flares
Body Armor 4x4 Rear Bumper
Terraflex Rock Rails
Front Axle tube and Gusset
