probably would help to give us some back ground info, even pictures of the jeep. Is it lifted? what kind of tires and what size does it have? What are you wanting to do with the jeep, rock crawling, trail riding or just cruising around town? Hard to help you out without more info.

Hhm..So is money an issue? If so what's your budget. I mean you could start by thinking of a lift.

If it's going to be a daily driver, consider putting a modest lift on it, maybe 2 or 3 inches. The higher your lift the lower your fuel economy goes. Yes, Jeeps are not representative of good fuel economy as it is, but lifting it 6 or 8 inches is going to hurt it even more. Second, purchase a good all terrain tire for it like the General A/T2 or the BF Goodrich A/T. Finally, invest in fog lights. They come in handy quite often and can save your arse if a headlight goes out. In addition, consider a nice steering wheel wrap. Doesn't have much more function than aesthetics, but it also makes the steering wheel more comfortable.

Forgot... get yourself a K&N Air Filter.

Start at the bottom and work your way up. You need tires/wheels first. Search the forum for tire suggestions. There's plenty of threads on which tires perform better in certain conditions. I would suggest getting wheels with more backspacing, especially if you're going to get larger than a 31" tire. Since your going to have your wheels off to change them, you should get the lift on there too- again search the form for Lift threads- it's been debated a 1000 times (you'll probably come away confused, since everyone swears by whichever lift they dropped all their money on!) Once your lifted and sitting on good rubber, put some armor underneath to protect the important stuff (that's where I'm at now) and you'll be good to go for the most part.

FYI-From what I've read, Forget about the K&N, waste of money. A regular Fram/stock filter will work just fine- especially since your working with a 4cylinder....


good luck!

If you can get your hands on some Yokohama Geolandar All Terrains they really are ALL Terrain. Will you spend more time Daily driving or off roading?

As far as tire I have tried BFG AT, 31's Maxxis Bighorn Radial MT,32's and now I have TrXus MT Radial 33's. I love the TrXus tires.
