2012 Wrangler Crush Freedom Edition

Well,
Finally got my new Wrangler, picked it up 70 miles north of where I live, and on the way back got an insane 23mpg haha

Specs as follows
2012 Jeep Wrangler JK Sport
3.6 Pentastar
15k Miles (when purchased) full warranty
6 Speed
Dana 30 and Dana 44
Soft top

Spent a lot of cash on this so I won't be doing anything to crazy right away, but I will be able to enjoy a Jeep again!






More pics coming soon.

Any recommended JK Mods that won't drive me broke? I plan on a LED Light bar but those are kinda spendy. Anyways....

Got my HIDs today...
55 watt Hi/Lo 6000k
55 watt Fog 6000k
18 watt reverse lights 4300k

Installed all of em and tested em that night.










Fog lights are so flipping bright I may not be able to use them during regular driving, regardless they need to be aimed down quite a bit, right now they're aimed in line with my high beams. Got flashed 4 times and shut em off.

Low Beams are so much better than the stock halogens, however they need to be aimed as well.

High beams are a billion times better than the stock high beams, rarely used them. It would be better if I could run the fog lights with them, but whatever.

Reverse lights are better than stock, but I'm still not sold on them. Before I bash them too much I will wait and see how they are over the next couple days.

Hi/Lo/Fog lights were all purchased from DDM. Yes DDM. 4th order from them and still 100% satisfied. Total order was around $120.

Reverse lights were purchased from an Amazon store, BlackWater MotorWerks. $49.99. These are yet to be justified, but we'll see.

I really really wanted a Freedom Edition Wrangler when I was getting my new one, but I found out not only are they super rare, you can't get them in orange. I also really wanted an orange Jeep. So I went ahead and bought an orange Sport. http://www.jeep.com/...imited_freedom/

Well it just got a set of Freedom Edition Oscar Mike decals. I do plan on re badging it to say Oscar Mike. If I don't like it, I'll just toss a Team JK sticker on it instead.



My friend convinced me that I need a CB so that's coming up next. Then the stereo gets a couple things. Really want an LED bar, so if you would like to donate money to my "LED bar fund" that'd be great

Just got back from Vacation and decided I will probably push my wheel and tire purchase back, and get new bumpers first. I'd rather be safe and not break my tail gate. As of right now I plan on getting the WARN Elite Series Front Bumper. I haven't found a rear bumper that I like yet so any input would be great.

Got a few parts in while I was gone, couple new vinyls and some electrical stuff.

More info on the way!
