First Jeep TJ
Hey guys, i just got my first TJ Sport about a month ago, had a yj before it for about four months then had to sell it due to rusted frame,:facepalm: but i want to build this one up, it has 2" coil spacers, hard and soft top, 33" mud tires, manual 5 speed, rock sliders on the sides, and everything else is stock. im planning on ordering a cold air intake, wheel spacers, throttle body spacer, and flat fenders soon. im not sure the order i want to do this, i also want to get a 4 inch lift, and 35s on it evetually, this is my third vehicle(im only 17), so im still new at this, ive read alot about it but i feel as if i havent even scraped the tip of the iceberg, so all help on this will be very much appreciated. and if anyone knows f good trails or runs near south west iowa that would be fantastic, right now i can only go down by a river, and go on class c roads to have any sort of fun.:confused: thanks for lookin and any helps guys

Congrats!:thumb: I am also a high school jeeper that recently got a TJ Sport!:punk: The cold air intake and throttle body spacer aren't going to make much of a difference. IMO, that money can be better spent on things such as a quality lift kit. If you are wanting a 4" lift, you better plan on buying a SYE and driveshaft to go with it. If you are wanting to eventually go with 35s, many more mods are necessary such as bigger and stronger brakes. Also, what is the reason for the wheel spacers? If you have aftermarket rims you should be good, and if you have stock rims, just sell them and go aftermarket unless you absolutely love the look.

Forget the throttle body spacer.

X1000 it makes a cool whistling sound that just starts becoming annoying after a while. Doesn't really do much for performance.
