|Brewbek||Its an illness alright. I've just done little stuff so far. Black logo, shorty antenna, floor liners and 9mm valve stem caps. Next year tires/wheels and lift. This summer, natural gas into my shop, new furnace, new lighting and tighten up the insulation. I may put the furnace on blocks so I can say I installed a lift.|

|flipmeover||One of the dealerships I looked at had a COD edition. Pretty spendy (definitely out of my budget), but looked BA right out of the box. Sorry to hear it didn't help the mod fever though. I guess there really is no cure...|

|LameStory||I debated for awhile between buying a Rubicon or getting a Sport and just building it up. I finally decided on a COD edition because it already had the better bumpers and rails and everything else I thought I wanted so I thought I wouldn't have to worry about mods. I was wrong. So very wrong.|

|JeepJkJoe||Yeah I don't know how many times I've told the wife "this is the last thing". I've used the better fuel mileage excuse one too many times and I think she's on to me.|

I want Cooper's & American Racing Fuel (black w/machined rim) wheels... just have to save up for them
This stuff aint cheap.

I can relate....I have a big list of stuff I want. Next will be grill inserts and THEN a new set of tires. I am leaning toward Duratracs or some Cooper tires that look great.
It will never end!

|flipmeover||Well... maybe if I could get the kids working in a sweatshop and the wife to turn tricks we could all chip in for a lift and wheels. I'll have to run it by her in the morning.|

Some of us don't have wives! And the girls don't mind paying since we got a Jeep! LOL
It is an addiction... And now a priority

|Banditt135||I know what you mean. I see them all tricked out, and I'm saving every penny just to get tires and wheels. And at the rate I'm going it's gonna be a while.|

The thing I can't figure out is how everyone can afford to do all these mods. I see tons of '12 and '13 JKs with lifts, A/M wheels, A/M bumpers, rock rails, etc, etc. I'm a senior engineer in the aerospace industry and thought I made a decent living, but I can't afford to do crap. I'm starting to think everyone on this site is a brain surgeon/multiple lottery winner or there's a secret site I haven't yet found to get 90% off all jeep parts. Anyone else feel my pain?

Tons of parts for the Wrangler... it's endless. You can go nuts or do just a little or be like the soccer mom who never takes the top off.
I started modding little things, I'm sure it's going to lead to bigger and better. So far, shorty antenna, spiderwebshade and KC 5" fogs on brackets. Now I want new wheels. After that, who knows.

The unending extent of choices and products is boggling. I barely have time to go thru the Jeep catalog before an even newer one is dumped in my box.QUOTE]
that really made me laugh because that is exactly how i feel. My quadratec catalogs come too frequent.

Being a retired geezer, I've got a different plan: I eat steak when I want to.
I celebrate my stock 08JK does everything and more than I want, need or expected.
I live in the rural Oregon Outback, and have ample choices of off-road and gravel road and fire road and open spaces to keep the day interesting. There isn't a day go by, or a ride/errand/jaunt around the area, that I don't get a tremendous benefit from the basic engineering. I've done light logging/farming/hauling/gardening under a wide range of pleasurable tasks under the guise of 'getting my chores done'. HAR!~!!!
I cheer those that mod to find their dreams. The unending extent of choices and products is boggling. I barely have time to go thru the Jeep catalog before an even newer one is dumped in my box.
I'm going to change oil/filters in the next week....probably can't really consider THAT a mod....

|dawhitesJKU||i haven't had steak in a while bcuz i saved up to purchase wheels/tires. now i'm not gonna have steak bcuz i'm saving up for my lift.|
