massive add-on checklist for a STOCK 2dr jk x package
ok so i am brand spanking new to the jeep world. my new jeep is a army green :punk::punk: (rescue green) 07, jk 2dr x package stock everything. this was funded in part by our nations great Army ROTC scholorship program that said, i know kinda what i want to add onto it but im not sure what brands and sizes are good for each of the items listed below. So have fun with the list below max budget is probably around 5k for everything i know it wont cover it all but whatever it does id love to hear about it. oh last thing (sorry hardcore jeepers) im looking for increased preformance, and Sweet hard@@@ looks. not really much off-roading. central florida suburbs lack the terrain for sweet off-roading. so here's all the crap i think i want to add on have fun!!!!

1. tailgate storage unit that goes between back seat and tailgate
2. OH CRAP handles :punk:
3. lift kit 2.5 inch max so i dont have to swap out my shocks and struts
4. tires 33 inch sweet looking doesnt have to be good off-road
5. exhaust( no idea what it does cept increase noise and HP)
6. Intake Btw is it true a big exhaust wont work well with stock intakes?
7. secure ipod system cuz i wont ever have my roof on :punk:
8. bikini top for those nice afternoon thunderstorms
9. :punk: looking bumpers that wont crumble when rear ended or rammed into somone elses rear end
10.anything else that will help with power, noise, lift, awesomeness!!

big thanks to any and all who post on this about any of the above stuff!!!!!

Lift: Rough country of teraflex
Tires: BF Goodrich or I'm partial to Procomp
Exhaust: Can't really go wrong with Gibson
Intake: I run aem bruteforce but airraid is good too
Secure Ipod: No such thing but you can get a tuffy center consule that you can lock it up in
Bikini Top: Bestop Bikini top is fine make sure you get the windshield header
Bumpers: Shrockworks or PureJeep are badass bumpers also check or LoD
You're not going to squeeze a whole lot of power out of that 3.8 the intake and exhaust will help...also regearing will help too, especially if you put on 33's you might want to think about 4.10 gears. I assume with the package that you described in your intro that you have 3.21 gears. Awesomeness: you have a jeep you're already awesome. I think i covered everything. There's a specific forum just for jk's if you PM me i will tell you if you're interested has ALOT of info about things and is VERY informative about you're new jeep.
