New member from IL - 2007 Wrangler JKUX

Hey everyone! After yearning for a Wrangler since my honeymoon 20 years ago I bought a 2007 Wrangler Unlimited X in December.

It came with disconnected and rusty PIAA a-pillar lights, a Skid Row Offroad skid plate, and Flowmaster Outlaw dual exhaust, and relocated TJ mirrors (I think they are TJ mirrors).

I've been having fun adding my own mods and have an aggressive list of inexpensive mods in progress.

Including pics of what it looked like when I got it then will reply with updates.

Newest look. Just installed the new bumper and fogs last night. BTW: I vary the headlight halo color by who I am picking up from an activity.

Not a lot. Closest major off-road parks are Cliff’s Insane Terrain in Central IL or Badlands in Attica. There is also a small one now in McHenry. The Silver Lake sand dunes in Michigan is my favorite.
