Ironic that I am reading this at this time. As I was going home for lunch I saw a 2-dr JK painted a pinkish purple with these huge Rockstars and the Texas Star on the grill parked at a detail shop. I love my Jeeps, but this thing was aweful! It hurt my brain to see a perfectly capable Jeep turned into a heap of crap! (Sorry folks, just my opinion).

I will disagree with this one, but to each his own.

Throttle body spacers...I know there will be some argument on this but I really believe they are just $50 paper weights. Carb spacers, yeah there will be improvements but throttle body spacers are just plain silly.

I must dissagree with you 100% on this one. I really dont want to get into it but it does a lot for a engine that needs it. If your engine doesnt need it then obviously its not going to do anything.

Fake beadlocks

I see a lot of Jeeps rolling around here with huge tires and huge lifts but no winch and no decent recovery points.

Hey! I resemble that remark!

I don't really have a huge lift or big tires, but My wifes Jeep does have some vertical enhancement. Exterior mods including winch and recovery points are in the works, budget pending.

I agree, and throwing any money on the stock ignition system, bad from the start, only turns to worse over time

Wow alot of arguments on worst mods on here.
I will give you a picture of my Jeep a year or so after I bought it. Still wonder what I was thinking? Granted I bought it new and it was the 90s.

Check it out the arcrilic (sp) fender guards, KC lights, nerph bars, add a leaf with 31s, bug sheild, the and the cat hood thing.
Now these are some worst mods!

yes.

First thing I did the day I bought the jeep is remove the fake-locks. I'd rather have 4 little bolt holes on the wheel than the fake-locks.

I still have no spare, no winch, and no recovery gear.

These are all pretty good, but I have to say that the worst mod there has ever been has to be the bad driver mod.

That's why you get an H4 kit so you don't have to buy the sealed beam ones which crap out when you blow on them. I have IPF H4 conversion housings and Silverstar H4s that have been in there since mid 2003 and probably 50K miles with no sign of crapping out yet.

i have these on my jeep, and i hate them everyday i drive it. They old mud, rocks, and whatever else you might find on the trail. (if you actually use your jeep) only reason i havent changed them yet, is i did everything first. Winch, 8.8swap, tube fenders, rockers, custom front and rear bumpers. Now looking into 35s on soft 8s.
