Bone stock 2014 JKUS.
New 1-2-14.
Wheeled it all the way across Chimmney Rock Road AR, up/down Yankee Boy Basin, up mineral creek road, up/down engineer pass, up/down cinnamon pass, across hurricane, corkscrew, California passes, California gulch, all the way to the tip top of lost canyon.
Woulda done black bear & Imogene but they weren't open ...
~13k miles on the odometer, ~2k off pavement. Drive it to work every day, 40 miles round trip. No intentions of deviating from stock.

Echo3879 Just bought mine 4 days ago, done nothing except drive on the beach in Daytona.

Brian6428 I'm basically stock after owning it for 3 months. I've done the grill mesh mod ($18), bestop center console lock box ($74), polyfill mod (free!), and grab handles ($16). All money well spent!

Godholio I bought mine right around when this thread was started. Bought a soft top, take-off Rubicon rails, and a shorty antenna. Since then...left the military, relocated to be near family, working for peanuts because the market out here is awful. Hoping to find something better before winter so I can upgrade my wheels/tires, since the OE tires (little sport tires) will be about due for replacement anyway.

My future plans include 17s and 33s (probably 35s down the road), regear and rear locker, bumpers and a winch, probably a BB, and ACE sliders. And headlights, preferably the JW Speakers.

mhicanders What qualifies as a 'mod'? I'll be adding RAM mount point(s), grab handles, saddlebag... I figure those are accessories, not mods....

Jpconrad Nothing installed so far, but I've only had it a week. I do have so things on order, though...

spinlock Congrats to all you have zero mods! I wish I had the will power.

Zero mods means a more reliable JK and a fatter wallet.
03-09-2014 12:54 AM
Anymouse No mods for me. The only thing I'm really thinking of is getting a short antenna. Or just simply removing it since I don't use the radio anyway except to play my iPod. Didn't even bother activating the free Sirius subscription.

I did recently buy a cover since it'll be sitting outside for months at a time without being driven. A victim of my work schedule/location.

00Sebby Almost 47000 miles on my '12 JKUR and no meaningful mods so far. Here is my build thread if you're interested. ==>

zerinS4 Have had my 10A since April '13 and have done zip/zilch/zero mods to it other than a spiderweb shade which isn't really a mod to me. No plans on modding at all

Happy JK I've had mine since December 2010 and had the title for about 6 months. I've bought a house with garage, had two kids (two car seats installed), harken hoist, wheel locks, spiderweb cage, locking hood, aftermarket alarm with motion sensors, spare cover, and have Procomp 7069s sitting in the garage waiting to be installed with new tires. Still feel like I haven't done much and is still stock underneath. An addiction comparable to heavy drug, addictive and expensive. I'm waiting to wear out the stock 29s before changing the wheels /tires to 33s

Miles adding up

I watched my '14 JKUS be wheeled off the rollback on 2/18. Now it has 600 miles already, with no real mods, and not even a name yet

After it was unloaded I left her overnight with the dealer and when I came back she looked even better. My salesmen buddy told me before I ordered her that he would switch me some Rubicon wheels and tires for the new Sahara ones.
I also ordered a Kurgo Wanderer Dog Hammock for my furry kid. I really don't envy the detail crew that had to clean up my old JK, lol.

I was able to transfer some accessories from my '12, including Husky floor mats front and rear. FYI the mat retainers are different in the '14s but the mats still fit snugly enough for me not to be concerned. Also my grab handle stuff bag(used for small gear when going somewhere, trash bag to keep floors clean most of the time. Kept the 100 bucks worth of Jeep handles from my '12 and have them in the '14 already.

Loving my new Wrangler though.. Think I'm gonna be a lifer!!

colder I've done wheel locks, cable lock for the spare, MOPAR hood lock... that's all. Doesn't need much

Brooklyn Nice reply.
02-15-2014 11:32 AM
mooney201 Boy is this an old thread. Anyway, ours is heavily moded. We installed one seat cover and console cover to save interior from our dogs nails.
Besides those heavy mods, we are stock.

Exactly. Ours will never have a 4" lift, 35" tires, a winch, etc. However, I have added a grill insert, hood locks, splined wheel locks, a fuel door and door sill guards. I consider those accessories, not mods. We were mostly happy with it the way it came from the factory.

Love your idea to "raise the garage"!

DanC I forgot....I took the headrests off the rear seat so the wife could see out the back. Does that count?
12-14-2013 01:47 PM
DanC So far mine is still stock but it's only 10 days old. Did order a set of GraBars for it to help the wife getting in and out. Traded her caddy for it and she says she wants to keep it just the way it is. Maybe someday.

HvyD63 My '13 JK is still stock. Saving for my first mods: Rugged Ridge slimline step rails, gas hatch cover, hitch, slush mats, mud flaps, and grill guard (havent decided which type or brand this yet). Couldnt spend $$ on mods when we had xmas gifts to buy. After that, lift and taller tires. I like the stock 17" wheels, but may switch those out too.

LemonLite As panthermark stated, still need to define "mod"...I think it's possible for someone to buy a Jeep with no intent to "mod" it, but if accessorizing is considered to be part of a mod (no matter how big or small the mod may be), I think it's impossible. If I had every intent to keep my Jeep stock, I know the headlights would eventually be replaced, along with the carpet floor mats. Therefor eliminating someone from the zero mod club.

luckeydoug1 We picked up my wife's special order Polar Unlimited on Wednesday. Three mods are on order: locking hood, locking lug nuts and a rear tire cover. The only other mod I see coming is the locking rear floor cover and locking gas cap. She ordered the vehicle just as she wanted it (auto trans, remote start, 430N, auto AC, side air bags and Trailer Tow) so I don't expect much else to be changed on the vehicle.

mdecew Call me the voice of reason (or not)…..take your time. wheel it around. read this forum peruse your Qtec catalog. DOnt jump too quick on anything. make sure it fits into a long term plan. every mod had consequences…..some require more money…..some you have to take off later to do something else. consider hard where you go and what you do…….save up…..then drink the kool aid and do some stuff…..any stuff…..thats part of the hobby…..part of the fun…part of calling yourself a "Jeeper"…..

Annhl8rX I initially thought I met the criteria, as I've only had my Jeep a couple of weeks. Then I remembered I out in a K&N filter. I don't really consider it a mod, but. I guess it technically is. I'll get wheels, tires, and a slight lift as soon as my motorcycle sells.
