I bought a 08 jk unlimited sahara last march. The previous owner didn't do anything but bling it out (chrome grille, mirror covers and fuel cover). What's the first thing you'd do to a stock jk?

I had mine less then 500 miles before I lifted it and put 35s under it. You have driven yours since March, you must have some idea of what you want? I would remove the bling. Chrome is very 1980s.

x2, remove the chrome. get a 2.5" lift and 35's.

What's wrong with stock JK's...??? I don't see the point to lift your jeep 2"... Waste of money... Specialy if you don't OffRoad...
I saw a lady posting bunch of mods here... I bet she doesn't even OffRoad much...
Simple mods are the best... Grill inserts... Stubby antenna... JKini top... Maybe Change stock wheels... Etc, etc...
Chrome grill look way better than plasti-dip it... Imho

You don't see the point but many of us do. Different strokes. I don't see the point of appearance only, or blingy mods.

Drive it. Learn it. Then use that knowledge – what it does well; what it does poorly – to mod it.

I agree with Junacho.
Bought my stock 2008 3 months ago . Love it just the way it is for now. Haven't yet taken it off the road and just starting to make a list of things that I might change. Hopefully by making changes slowly and one at a time it's like having a "new" and "better" toy with each upgrade.
Just my opinion......

I'm kinda digging the chrome so it will stay until it breaks...: ) (Not that i would ever actually paid to get it.) I've done some light off roading with the jeep club I'm in but nothing serious yet. I may decide to get a lift kit and bigger tires to have more clearance. With the 4 door model I'm always afraid I might not clear the same areas as my 2 door buds out there.

You asked what I would do, de-bling it.

I just got a '12 sport and had new mud radials, black alloys, neoprene seat covers , AFE exhaust and K&N intake within a couple hundred miles. No bling. To each his own.

Drive it an enjoy it...
Outside of mostly security and comfort mods, I plan on keeping mind stock and enjoying my trips the Chipotle or Panera....
