New 2016 JKU Rubicon Owner!
I stumbled upon this community quite a bit when searching for Jeep information and I ultimately ended up with a 2016 JKU Rubicon and I'm super excited! I google my way through most questions I have, but at some point will probably ask a super simple question if I can't find the answer.
These are some of the first things I want to add to my Jeep if anyone is interested and feel free to pitch me ideas:
*Add rock rails/sliders (currently thinking the Barricade J100289)
** I read the ACE vs Barricade thread it seemed pretty heated at parts
*I eventually want to do a lift + tires, but this will be after hours and hours of research and after I wear down the stock tires, because it seems like a waste of new tires to do it now. Also, I need to understand how the lift will affect driving in all conditions and what would be best for all around conditions, because I do a little of everything.
*I want to replace the stock bumpers and add a winch(this seems like a necessity)
*I was thinking about getting a hard top for winter(currently premium soft)
*I was thinking of switching on the hood for something with better air flow and getting a cold air intake
*Some how upgrading from the stock 8 speaker setup, because it's not that impressive. I'm thinking of switching on the stock speakers, adding an amp, and 10 inch sub(I'm not sure if this would require a head unit switch out or if I would only really benefit from switching out the head unit)
I think that's about it, for my current list. Most of this will be as time goes on, but I really love the ability to mod to my hearts content or leave it stock. If anyone else see something that I absolutely have to add feel free to comment.
Anyways, glad to be here,look forward to being part of the community!
