Fast Jeeps..?

Haha ok I recently just noticed this section of the forum.
Anyone here mainly just build their Jeeps to make them go faster and/or drive them fast??
There is a kid at my school that has a Jeep and doesn't wheel his, he just makes it faster (putting intakes, exhaust, headers, etc.) and just cosmetic stuff in general.
Post pics of your Jeeps that you build just for the street and increase their speed, I'm curious to see what other people's Jeeps look like for just this purpose.

Far from being fast, but my practically stock rig is in my sig. As the money rolls in, parts roll in, albeit I've been spending more time restoring it than anything else.

Next on the list:

Ford 19lb Injectors
Borla Muffler w/ 2.5" cat-back

Maybe I should have created this in general discussion. I know the majority of the people in this section "race" or make them faster ordub edition them. I kinda wanted to see opnions from a lot of people that wheel and have lifts, also.
Basically what the whole Jeep community thinks of Jeeps that are built just for speed and the street.
I'm personally not a supporter of anything that tries to make a Jeep a hot rod. It doesn't make sense to me, but to each his own.

The reason we even have a separate section is because of what the Jeep community generally (at least the immature ones) thinks of us Street Jeepers.

I'll just say this. I don't get the whole hate those who want to "hot rod" their jeep. I like power and I am not a rock crawler or mud slinger. That doesn't make me immature or stupid. Actually anything I do to make additional power would benefit ANYONE who takes theirs offroad. I like lifted and lowered fast jeeps. They all look good to me.
