|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.|

Picked up my new 2013 on Monday....two days and 524 miles later, still thinking about accessories. My base Sport has steel 16" wheels and small tires. Friday, I'll put on the aluminum 17" wheels and Goodyear SR/A's. (I don't really consider them mods, but they sure aren't accessories).
I'd like some small side steps (like the ones that fit the TJ), but I haven't found any yet. Don't care for tubular side steps, as they won't last 2 years up here due to the pure salt on winter roads.
Stock fog lights are pretty lame, so new ones will be on the list.
That's probably it, as it's mostly a street machine.

|Ricanbandit||Got mine last Saturday - First "mod" were the wheel locks. Ordered 13 inch antenna now looking for some mean looking wheels that can use the OEM tires and then I will definitely upgrade the speakers and add a sub. First jeep for me and it is a lease since I didn't know if I was going to like it or not. Damn so much for that! the wifey is already cringing as I have a serious mod addiction that started with my Z4M. So here we go, like this place tons of info available!|

|Drreeww||Only mod Is bigger firestone wheels for me, besides that just interior adjustments|
|09-18-2013 12:16 PM|
Still need to define "mod".
Modify and accessorize are not the same thing.

|Scargosun||Bought '13 JKU Sahara in late June and still stock but putting my list together. Since the plastic corner bumper got pushed in (pushed back out with screwdriver and hairdryer) within 2 weeks of getting it, new bumper killer bumpers are 1st on the list. I don't really consider my locking gas cap a mod.|

|iflyhi22002||Bought my 13 Sahara Unlimited almost 2 weeks ago, 710 miles on it and all stock still. Getting the front 2 windows tinted tomorrow to match the rest, and besides that the other mods will have to wait. I will be buying a lock for the spare tire soon..just too tempting for some people. We have a baby coming around Oct.2nd..so the lift, tires, etc..will have to wait for a bit, but I'm ok with that as I finally have my Jeep|

I've only had mine 5 days so I'm in the same boat. My husband has planned about 36million mods but as I keep reminded him I get final say on anything.
I want to:
Swap the springs with a Rubicon or something to get a slight lift
Bigger wheels and powder coat them white
Bigger more aggressive tires
I'm sure I'm missing something. Any suggestions?

|zerinS4||2700 miles on my 10A Rubi and no mods aside from a shade to keep my head from roasting. Also no real intent of doing any mods until I find a reason the stock stuff isn't good enough.|
|08-08-2013 09:03 AM|
I guess you can count my rubber duckie sticker as a mod... but other than that, I'm stock. Nearing a year and 15000 miles of ownership, too.
I'd like to buy a few things - rock rails (like Ace that can serve as steps), a security deck (want to figure measurements), a performance leveling kit (get rid of the rake, 1 in all around), soft top boot (though who am I kidding, I just use the sunrider position), mesh shade (trying to figure out if the 2dr size fits on the 4dr). Everything is just too expensive, and I'd rather not throw it on credit card or deny myself other things.
It'll probably be stock for a while, maybe not modded at all besides aesthetic things.

I bought a '13 JKU Rubicon on Tuesday, take delivery tomorrow. One reason I bought the Rubi was my perception that it has already been modded to a significant degree. This will be my DD, but also used for hunting, camping, mild off-roading, and even the occasional long distance road-trip, so no plans to lift, do bigger tires/wheels, or suspension upgrades. The Rubi is likely more than I'll ever need. I do like the idea of heavier duty bumpers, some sort of brush-guard, locking gas cap, tail-light guards, and I'll also add a tow-hitch at some point.
Mostly I'm thinking I'll just drive it, enjoy it, and check out threads on this forum and just generally look at other Jeeps, get ideas here and there, and make little tweaks occasionally. It's about the journey, not the destination......

|Cdwright||I have upgraded headlamps to better halogens and that is all.|

Mine was stock for about 48 hrs after driving her off the lot. So far the mods I've added:
Steering wheel cover (it did come with nice rubber fl mats though)
Gas cap cover
Rear tail light covers
My next two mods are going to be a stinger front bumper and matching rear bumper, and a roof rack. Mine is also mainly a city driver so I don't think I'll add suspention mods or even a lift. However, I do want to get her out trailing soon, just not on anything that would snap an axle.

|AKgirGP||I've had mine since March. Only plans I have are a 2" lift, more aggressive tires, and an Auto Start for the subzero temps in the winter.|

That is plenty modified for me.
My motto after decades and many 10s of thousands of dollars wasted on what proved to be poorly engineered after market crap is "Buy it as close as you can get to the way you want it from the factory and leave it alone."
|07-23-2013 11:58 PM|
Mine is stock (Well I bought it today). All I have done is remove the top and doors and enjoy the drive (175 miles today, sorry to say only 10 off road).
2013 Commando Green "Freedom Edition"
Want to Add (waiting on funds):

Wet Okole Seat Covers
For Starters but maybe in the future:
We will see.

I just need to carry all the things.
JK Wrangler Unlimited Sport, only had it for about 3 weeks now. I'm compiling lists of what I want. As the it is paid off though the mods will probably happen slowly. My biggest need is hauling capacity. In the vehicle, on the vehicle, behind the vehicle...
The cheep mods:
Floor mats (Quadratec?)
And security items like locking lugnuts on the wheels and locking fuel cap.
Roll Bar Handles
The less cheep ones:
Roof Rack (probably deciding between the Kargo Master one or the Garvin one)
Those are my definites but then there's the dream of lift kits, new wheels, and a winch.
Would a non-chipped key be out of the question also? Does jeep ever do that? I have a bad habit of locking my compartments, then realizing I want something while driving. I don't want to have to pull over and turn off the vehicle just to unlock the center console.

Wish I could help with the stock stories. But I'm also a mustang owner and have not managed to keep any car I've owned stock for more than the first week.
Picked mine up 4 weeks ago. As I got the keys I ordered the black front emblem. Since then I have added valve stem caps. I like to build things myself if I can. So I built some dark blue suede ceiling panels (Why does a black interior come with a white hardtop interior?) They are suede because I like the feel, not because I think this is an Aston Martin. Next mod is some vinyl work to replace the stuff on there now. After that... Tubing bender, welder, sheet metal bender, and other fabrication items. Then I'll design at least some of the next parts that go on my car.

I've had mine less than two weeks now. It's an '08 but bone stock and only 23k on the odometer. But according to my UPS tracking numbers, parts should start showing up tomorrow. It's looking like a great weekend ahead!
|11-25-2012 11:02 PM|
zero mods so far.
Of course only had it for about 50 hours.
