2006 Wrangler Unlimited TJL

I am new to WF and somewhat new to the whole jeep world. I bought by 2006 TJL back in July with a hard top, stock lift, 36,600 miles. Being a college student I haven't had the time or the money to really put a lot of work into her yet. I have a put a 2 inch teraflex puck lift on 31x10.5 BFG all-terrains. Smittybuilt rock-crawler front bumper, the rampage frameless soft top, Mirror relocation brackets, and I plasti-dipped my rims. I am looking for basic cheap mods i can do, both cosmetic and engine. Any advice I can get. I love the Jeep and the Jeep community

Pic 1 : the day i bought her
Pic 2 : Right after i installed the teraflex "lift"
Pic 3 : Plasti-dipped rims
Pic 4 : Side view of what she looks like now
Pic 5 : Front view of her


Thanks guys (and girls)

You've got the jeep bug! Just drive it a bit and find out what you like before modding just to mod. Enjoy

That looks awfully similar to mine. Bought mine late last year with 38,000 miles.

Here is the link to the thread when I bought it.

I do like the look of the black wheels.

Yeah real similar. Thanks, i am proud of those, i put a good but of work into it. The only problem ive been having is my gas tank over flows and spits gas out when i will her up. Just inconvenient because its wearing my fender flare out. Any experience with this problem?

Yes.... My 2005 did the same thing.

See the thread below for a cheap fix. It has been dubbed the Shoppe Mod. Had gas spill on my shoe one too many times. Best $30 I have spent on it.
