My direction now is 2012 JK Sport S. Auto. Cosmos blue (KU Fan)

Mopar off road front and back bumpers or performance? The off road looks pretty good but the performance is AEV right?

Mopar 2" lift with Bilstein 5100's. I read this is a good ride. Will it void warranty? Are there cheaper options that are as good or better? I don't want too high, just want a wider tire and stance.

GY Duratracs 315/70/17 with bed coated stock wheels. Will these tires fit on these rims? Will the dana 30 on the front be ok in snow and mud, maybe a small rock here or there?

Rigid lighting Led's on front bumper (20") or windshield (40") If I can sneak it past the wife.

Your feedback is appreciated!
According to the parts catalog the Mopar offroad bumper is not available for the 2012. It's listed up to 2011. They may give you a hard time ordering it. a few bumpers have had issues being installed on 2012s due to a change up front.

The performance is AEV without the bar. Nice bumper, but pricey.

Mopar lift: won't void your warranty, but likely doesn't come with the same warranty stock came with. Ask about how they warranty it. Some have had success getting warranty work done on lifted Jeeps (my guy aligned mine under warranty after an AEV lift). Seems to be dealer dependent. Of course anything you change isn't warrantied, but everything else can/should be.

Duratracs, have em, great tire. Fits on the rim, but as the poster above said, you need 1.5" spacers for them.

InfernoGirl You'll need new wheels or spacers to fit 315's.... Mopar offroad bumpers are nice, but $$$. AEV is more $$$$. Warranty is only voided for the parts affected by the mods. IOW, suspension mods won't affect the paint warranty....etc. Covered mods vary by dealer. Teraflex and OME and lots of other good lifts out there. Spend some time reading the lift review threads and you'll learn how they differ.
