first good mods

I was curious what everyone thinks are the first great mods whether it be the interior, suspensions, add ons, etc. My jeep is currently lifted 4 inches with spring lift and on 33s. other than that mainly stock with the 2.5L. shoot all suggestions at me

High on my list would have to be F&R ARB's and the 5.0 Atlas.

Defiantly look towards performance before cosmetics. Its a hard lesson to learn but trust me, a jeep looks a lot prettier when its rompin in the mud, then when its sittin on the side of the road.

Depends on the cash you have. If you're lifted on 33's and really hate the 2.5L, the 4.0L would be a nice swap. If you can handle it, I would lock the axles and swap in an atlas t-case or teralow 4:1

One of the first mods I ever did and still my favorite and most versatile to this day is my Sanden A/C on board air conversion. It was inexspensive, did it for less than $100 and it gets a ton of use! I can fill my tires at the end of the day coming off the trail, run any air tool I could ever need or want to use any time anywhere. Fill my air mattress when camping, blow the duist off at the end of the day, you name it.

Next mod would have to be lockers after that
