Whats your favorite upgrade to your jeep?

What's your favorite thing you have done to your jeep that just makes you always want to take another look back at it and smile. Even though I think we all look back at our jeep when we walk away.

Not sure if it's number 1 or not, but I would definitely say that our ACE rock sliders and Welcome Distributing GraBars are in the top 5.

Now when I get my OWN jeep, that answer may be completely different.

From the outside, Black Rock Vipers and Duratracs.

Overall, the completely aftermarket sound system.

It's a toss up between my AEV Pintlers and my ACE Rock Rails. I'm not very modded yet, though.

Only had my Jeep a couple of months. Right now it is probably my homelink garage opener.

I am dreaming of new wheels and tires though.

Mind posting a pic? I have the LOD rear bumper and am really torn between the lite mid or full width for the front. It's making me crazy...

What all did you do to your sound system. All I have done is replaced the head unit with a avh-x5500

It was my new AEV Savagre wheels until this last Tuesday when it got a new sound system. Everything but the HU. Focal speakers, JL 8"sub in the stock enclosure, JL 5 ch amp and bass tuner. Dynamat front floors and front doors and dynamat behind speakers in the sound bar. WOW! What a difference.

- JVC KW-AV60BT head unit (although I'm not a huge fan, I think I'm probably going to replace it with a Pioneer AppRadio 3 shortly)
- Pioneer MRX-V70 5 channel amp (mounted under passenger seat on jeepedjeep aluminium underseat bracket)
- Polk db6501 component speakers (front)
- Polk db651s shallow mount coaxial speakers (soundbar)
- JBL GTO 804 shallow mount subwoofer

Not the world's most powerful system - total usable output is probably around 400W - but it's well matched and good quality sound, and I'm very pleased with it other than the head unit.

^THIS! It's been over 100F for the past several days and forecast to be so for at least the next 7 days and I'm still running the SWS. I'd rather sweat a bit and be relatively topless than bake for 15 minutes under a black hardtop waiting for the AC to take hold.
Plus the jeep just looks good topless.

Well over $10K in mods. Best investment = $300 for Rancho 9000 adjustable shocks.
