Question What was your first modification....

For us it was straight to the teraflex leveling kit, and some 1.5" spidertrax spacers....

Ps if this has been asked before...sorry for the repost this forum is so active it's tough to keep up

Mirror flip, Antenna-X, grab handles, Q floor mats. I think. I had a garage-full of stuff, since my Jeep was ordered, and I installed the simplest stuff first.

Turn your mirror upside down...it'll give you a better view out the rear window. Can't do it on a '13, though...

Worked on my 2013. Give it a twist and upside down it goes. Now I have moon lights instead of map lights.

Hard to remember. They all run together. LOL

I think it was grill inserts.

I did several things to it the night we brought it home. However, the FIRST modification was adding the Mopar fuel door.

I think the absolute first was the LED projector reverse lights. Then the LED interior lights/polyfill. I waited until I had all my black trim and grille inserts before I finally swapped the Trucklites from my TJ and put on my rock rails. Then I swapped in the 430N head unit. Then it was wheels/tires, followed by the leveling kit/intake/exhaust. That's where I'm at now. I'm still waiting to build up the courage to try putting on my hood blackout decal. That's a lot of vinyl for someone without any vinyl experience.
