what mods have you done to your street jeep?

I was just wondering what everyone has done to their street jeeps and how they feel about the modifications.

To start off:

Performance
I bored my tb,
home made air intake
tb spacer....stay back tealcherokee i know what you will say about it ,
zip tie tranny mod ,
accel 8mm spark plug wires
the bored tb and air intake have seemed to make a big difference and improved diveablity and the zip tie mod is nice since it raises the line pressure of the tranny

Interior/ Sound System
Pionner DEH-P47DH headunit
Alpine V-350 amp
Diamond Audio D3 400.2
Dual 12" kicker comp subs
soon to be new door speakers
i could not imagine driving with the stock radio, it was horrible i mean i love cassette tapes but really I got tired of using a tape adapter to listen to cds

I used TJ springs for the front. Right now it has a bit of a rake, but it rides fine. I need to go buy a digicam, but this deal with the rims came up, so I took that first.

I should have measured before and after, but I didn't. It seems an inch to maybe an inch and a quarter. You can really tell it is lowered

get those bilsteins on man, they are MONEY! I just threw a set on this morning on a customers jeep. He had monroe sensatracs which weren't bad by any means, but they had somethin glike 50k miles, threw on those bilsteins, all i gotta say is wow!

when you get that flow master 40 series are you going to run a tail pipe or dump it a few inches past the muffler? flow master mufflers sound amazing dumped before the axle, but i haven't seen or heard anyone doing this.

What I want to do is a side exit ala Ford Lightining. I think it would be diffrent (not to mention cheaper because I am using less tubing).
