New 2016 JKU Rubicon Owner!
Hello everyone,

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!

Oh, I forgot to add a couple images of my Jeep. I happened to be on my way to Asheville, NC. This weekend and made it up to Brown Mt. Their ORV trails didn't seem to be very technically demanding, but it was a blast. =D

Maybe someone you has been there can confirm whether these are very easy trails or not.
