new jk

Well I test drove a JK when they first came out but the power just wasn't there for me. Really turned me of so I haven't been reading up on them so last week I read where they bump the HP up in 2012 so....I had to have one, pick up this 2013 this morning then took it straight to the tire shop and put some 285/70/17's on it, getting the windows tinted tomorrow and leveling kit is on the way

Not doing much to this one any time soon, just put the leveling kit on when it comes in and shorten up the factory front bumper

Shortened the factory bumper and put VDP end caps on, that's about it for this jeep for now, just wanted a jeep with mild upgrades to drive on the street since I'm not going to be able to drive my Cherokee on the street any more
