my list of mods so far.

The truck is rhino, and i hate the idea of black wheels. seems everywhere i look every jeep has black wheels, so i went with the 75A bumpers, and plan on going with bronze wheels. tacky? maybe but its my truck and my preference

Spiderweb shade

Grabars for the front, RR strap on handles for the rear (my daughter is 6 and still having issues getting in lol)

Jeep all weather mats

RR (i believe) tow hitch

i got 4 of the KC HiLites c3 pods just waiting for my bracket to come in, and they have the mopar covers (i heard the lenses get foggy if left out in the sun for to long, so i got the cover so their exposed only when i need them)

Thule 963pro spare tire 2 bike carrier (not installed yet, my package was missing some hardware)

and i got piaa headlight bulbs since the factory ones are garbage

thats all for now, but i have a ton of questions. i know nothing about these trucks and I'm hoping to get some good advise and ideas, i have been googling a lot of stuff and got so many answers to questions I've had already. mainly from this site. thanks in advance guys and gals!

Thank you everyone! Today I went out and got the 3" cubes from KC Hilites. I picked up 4 of them and the windshield mount. Also purchased a set of Phillips h16 led foglighg bulbs. Come to find out our trucks use 5202 and the h16 bulbs don't fit our housing nor do they connect to the harness. Any way to get these to work? Non refundable 150 bucks although I'm fighting it because the site deceived me and told me my bulbs were h16 ?

This is a daily driver with my 6 year old 85% of the time. I plan on doing very light trails, would I be safe with a 2" lift and put 33's on it with 17 inch wheels? Would I need a re-gear?
