Hello.

Totally new to Jeep world..:)
I live in NoVA and we gets pretty nasty winter last few years. I still love cobra and wish I kept both..but im getting old and need more realistic vehicle for DD. I drive to DC(one of the worst traffic in US) everyday and driving manual is no fun.

So, I got this 15 sahara X edition 37500 OTD and pretty happy so far.

Here is mods I did since 3/20/15 the day signed the check.

Short Antenna X
LED Quadratec Stealth headlights
LED Fog lights
35%tinted front windows(3M) tinted side markers
Redrock side steps
Xpel Ultimate firm on full hood, grill, fender flares, fenders, A-pillars
Opticoat pro paint protection

Here is couple pics after opticoat and Xpel firms.

I bought a Rugged Ridge XTD 18x9 wheels and I dont know I should run 285/65/18 Nitto G2 or 35' G2 or duratrac. Mine is 3.21 auto.

My future mods.
Flashpaq
Dynamax 38517VT
Mopar CAI
Rugged Ridge throttle body spacer
BDS 2inch coil springs
Blinstein 5100 shocks
sway bar links
Teraflex steering stabilizer

Wicked looking jeep! From what I have see on the forum, you might want to get the 3.73 gears front and rear before you put the 35s on. With the 3.21s guys say they bog down going uphill on the highway. But all of that is just what I have read! no experience yet!! I'm still waiting on my 2015 Sport to come in.

Yep. I heard that too. if I spend money on gears. I would rather throw 4.56 or higher. But, I already spent crazy money on car and way more mods to go..lol change gears cost about 1200 I believe(with labors) and do u guys think its worth it?

Welcome. Bought mine 3 weeks ago, bought a bunch of stuff but yet to have it installed. I got lucky and I have 3.73's. If you already have the tires I would buy the Superchip now and reprogram for your tire / gear ratio. According to the box I have sitting in my dining room the chip will maximize performance.

Looking forward to watching your build. Blue Baby Sound said it best in my thread.... Welcome to the madness.

I really wanna order superchip. But, flashpaq 15JKU is not upload yet..:( IDK how long I need to wait more..:( Any idea?
Looks like ur in luck, order away.... Sounds like you have to buy one then download for the update for 2015 JK

Edit: Just read and you wanted Flashpaq not FlashCal... sorry to get ur hopes up. My bad!
