My 75A Build -- What's Next?

Hi all!

Had my 75A JK since 2016 and did a couple of things:
  • 2.5" lift kit ("most popular lift kit") with added 1" spacers = 3.5" lift
  • 33" Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires on stock rims
  • 1.5" wheel spacers
  • Legato exhaust (awesome sound!)
  • Cold air intake
  • Trailer hitch
  • Tuffy locking rear cover
  • 20" LED bar on front bumper
  • LED cubes at the A-frame
  • CB radio (stolen!) with Firestik antenna
Running out of ideas what I could do next. Mine is not a rock crawler, but I go offroading quite a bit (landscape photography and surf fishing on the beach).

What would you do next?

Cheers!

Nice Jeep! I would think about upgrading your headlights and fogs next. Take a look at J.W. Speaker. You'll appreciate them every day.

A procal or super chips flashcal to program your Speedo and auto transmission ( if that's what you have) to fix your shift points. Very nice Jeep. And it's a 2 door.. yay for us 2 door owners.

Good ideas about LED lights and pro cal! It's a manual, though.

Just a reminder, if you replace/upgrade your fogs, you will need to order a bracket to use with your 10A bumper. I like the Maximus-3 bracket.

https://maximus-3.com/home/maximus-3...-led-fog-light

While you're on the Max-3 site, check out there stingers/brush bars. I think you might be able to get them in the same finish you have on the 75A.

Someone broke into your car for a CB radio? That's so pathetic. Was it on the trail or the streets or your home/driveway? I leave my radio in the glove box but the wound up cable sticks out so it is obvious I have a radio in there. I have no window tint either in the front so people can see my CB, my Vector bar with Ram X mounts that I leave attached.

I live in D.C. (half a mile from the Capitol!) and they break into my Wrangler all the time and take whatever they find. Once they broke the window and took ... (drumroll!) ... a trash bag!

Someone broke into the centers console where I had my Uniden radio installed ... locked and out of sight ... and they took it. The pried the 110V adapter out and broke all the plastic until they got into the center console. Now I leave my Wrangler unlocked (!), keep nothing inside and have all tools stored under the Tuffy locking rear cover in the back. That thing is extremely difficult to break into because the gate sits on top of the Tuffy cover.

Wow that's terrible man. Hide a camera in your Jeep and see if you can catch the loser bum who breaks in. God how I HATE thieving freaking rats. Boils my blood to hear stories like this.

So yeah, maybe I need a new locking center console like the Tuffy Security Console, but that's $450!

Its worse than you think: I have my Wranger parked under my HD security camera and caught one thief in the act and have that on tape. On the video you can see him break into the Wrangler and come out with stuff in his hands and walk away. He was wearing a campaign t-shirt for the local election, so I made a screenshot of the guy, emailed it to the election campaign headquarters and asked if they know him. They did and sent me his name, phone number and address. The police indicted him and after more than a year of waiting, the District Court dismissed the case because they argued that security camera footage is not enough evidence!!

a local ANTIFA thug piece of sh1t. Street justice my friend. Can't rely on cops to do anything for stuff like this. Not only will they take months to over a year to finish the case, often times they end up doing nothing at the end, like in your case. $450 for that lock case seems reasonable when you think about it. Cheaper than having to replace broken windows and messed up door locks. How are they breaking into your Jeep? Is it that easy? Windows or door locks? If you have his name/number/address, well you know what to do lol.
