The first thing to go in to her was an audio system...I just couldnt take the stock setup. I replaced the dash 4x6s and the soundbar 5.25"s with Memphis MClass coaxials. Next I added an Alpine head unit with iPod controls and. The subs in this thing are monstrous. Four 15" Memphis PRs in a custom downfiring enclosure. I know subs arent very "Jeepy," but I love them, and they sound good with all music, surprisingly. The third pic is a look under my box from the pass. side floor. I will try to get a better pic when i lift the box up

Then Christmas came...Santa brought me a new front bumper (Smittybilt XRC) and a Warn M8000 winch. I also bought a pair of KC Long Range Slimlites off a buddy of mine. The winch took awhile to get on b/c I had to order the Solenoid Mounting bracket later
