Newbie - 2012 JKUS: Lookin for Advice to Trick My Ride

Hello,
New member from the Seattle area. Second Jeep - first was a 2007 that my ex-wife never drove. Now it's my turn. Going to do this project in stages, but new to modifying Jeeps (or any car).

I know you all are loaded with ideas and knowledge, and there is no limit to what I'd like to learn. Want a B.A. lookin ride first, than work my way to kick butt off road. Yes, this is my commuter and I do have an overall height limit of 7' for parking garages for now.

First on my list is lift and wheels/tires.
Second bumpers
Third and last for my starter is roof rack.

I am having a tough time deciding on lift and wheels. Want it to look mean on the road, but not have any issues with drifting or snow/ice driving. Photos help. And although I think black looks the best, the deep cherry color needs the chrome wheels (sorry if you disagree).

Thanks, and glad to meet you all.

If you plan on lifting it, consider moving that higher on the list, or you'll end up buying new wheels and tires twice.

Those are sweet wheels, I like the lift, not too high if there is such a thing. Leaves room for a roof rack. Thank you for the reply.

The lift / wheels at same time.

Welcome! I agree 100% - chrome rims are a must for a cherry red Wrangler
