Best mod ever!!!
 
The great thing about jeeps, no two are the same. As soon as you get a jeep, the spending starts. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has purchased something only to figure out later you want to replace it with something better. But it is sure nice when you find that PERFECT part! So I thought maybe we can help someone out looking for that perfect MOD. Post up what has been your BEST MOD. Maybe tell us what jeep you have as a reference.

Being mine started out as a non-rubicon with a manual tranny, I would have to say my 4.3 atlas t.c. If I had it to do over again, I might of gone with the 5.0 atlas. The worst mod, and I know Russ is going through this right now, was the C.A.I. Because of a dirty intake, I put the stocker back on-much cleaner. Mark.

There is no single perfect part that is a stand alone part.

My preference would be a well set up mid arm suspension, correct tires for the wheelbase, a tuned set of remote reservoir shocks with good brakes and steering. Once you have that as a platform, all the rest is just gravy and things you do to satisfy your specific needs, wants, and desires for where you like to play.

My wife is apparently defective, as she doesn't get it. I have looked through every catalog and I have and searched every online vendor. I do not see this part listed anywhere. :lmao:

On board air I would have to say is the SINGLE best mod. Gets used on every trail easy or hard. Great for modified or stock Jeeps. Without it one keeps street pressure which greatly reduces off road capabilities and ride comfort.

My girl friend is cool with it. She's got a '53 f100 that I'll start working on once we get a house.

To not clog up this thread, can you elaborate on this via PM? Mainly the part about the tire vs. wheelbase.

Easy for me. My RSE electric step sliders. They pivot down every time I open the door and provide me a step to climb into my Jeep. 3/16 steel plate. I was having trouble getting into the TJ and wanted none of that on the JK.

ChuckMRN 11-14-2013 11:19 PM

I have to say the best so far is the Hydro Assist. When I spot for the wife now she enjoys driving.

Trailchaser562 11-14-2013 11:56 PM

Sliders, jeeps are gas and play right the get go...

Actually, I think on board soft-serve ice-cream would be better, but to each his own I guess.

My rear ARB locker is my favorite.

I take that to mean essentially the correct size tires for the size of the vehicle/wheelbase. For example, for serious wheeling in a TJ, you want at least 35's. JK you would want 37's, etc.

But a 2 door jk only has an inch or so longer wheelbase than a TJ? You really are hooked on getting 37s now aren't you?

Ya think? :D

Actually when I said 37's for a JK, I was referring more to a JKU. I would say 35's would be good on a 2 door because of the shorter wheel base. Though the JK 2 door is still wider than a TJ.

Of course, I'm not an expert like Blaine... :lmao:

That was meant as a compliment and also somewhat stating that I'm NOT and expert.

I have certainly learned this the hard way. I know exactlly what you are saying and I agree with you 100%. But I have to say everyone (ok not everyone) has purchased that ONE item that they REALLY enjoy having on their Jeep. Whether is was to improve performance, improve comfort, improve safety, make a statement, or in Bob's case get him in his Jeep. Everyone knows "a BEST Mod" truely does not exist. But it's fun to wish:)

So play along Blaine, what is that one thing on your Jeep you just love???

Sticky tires.

Locking gas cap has been useful in my neighborhood!! Does that count?

Lbear 11-15-2013 05:39 PM

I love me my LoD bumper and recessed winch with a red ProLink out front. Although I have tried repeatedly to install a Jeep-loving, offroading wife, mine must be defective because no amount of installation effort seems to work. Would send her back to the factory but she has a few other redeeming qualities- most days.

Hydro assist steering what a difference it made!
