1st upgrade
 
Hello all, finally got my Jeep after 25 years of wanting one! It's certainly a long term commitment as I intend to pass it to my son, who is currently 21 months. I bought a 2013 Wrangler Sport. Anyone have advise on what I should upgrade first? Thanks.

I don't know if this would be a first upgrade but I usually put a k&n jeep air intake and then a flow master muffler.. Love the sound it makes. Plus I actually got better gas mileage with the upgrades.

I would say change out the headlights, doens't have to be LED or HID -- can just do a simple IPF or Delta swap and do some insulation since summer is pretty much here. check out - Home

honestly, the headlights are pretty bad if there are no street lights and the sun will bake your noggin'.

Are you going to be doing any wheeling with the Jeep? If so maybe a small leveling kit and some 33" tires. It'll give you some better offroad performance as well as a more aggressive styling.

We have a ton of options for both tires and lift kits. If you have any questions about brands of kits or tires, let me know!

I'm thinking I'll put a cold air intake and filter on it, install a Reese hitch and call it a day for now. I do want to mud in it but I'm still traveling quite a bit and don't want to lift it or increase the tire size. I'm trying real hard to not go broke from fuel consumption.

Out of curiosity why do you want a cold air intake?

To reduce fuel consumption vs. power. It seems to be more efficient with other gasoline engines. Do you have another recommendation. I'm open to thoughts. Thanks.

yea save your money on the cold air intake. They might sound like they are making power but there have been many dyno tests to show they really don't.

Don't offroad alone.


Get a winch.

Yea the cold air intake is a complete waste of money! Put that money towards something else. If you want some to do with air intake, get a snorkel. Looks awesome and functions better than a CAI.

If you are taking your 2 year old son with you, them the first upgrade is Scotchguard the seats.
