I plan to get the 4xguard Matrix Brush guard or maybe in the future, an entirely new steel bumper front and rear with tire-rack. And even a cargo basket for long hauls up to Uwharrie, Troy, NC. Ive been on the trails once with my WK and it did great, I just cant stand the no driver input for the 4x4. QT I is great but I feel like this is an AWD vehicle. I want to ride more difficult terrain, but I feel I need something a little more powerful to accomplish this. I hope there are ways to up the ante for this little 4x4 without buying a new jeep.
Ive even had thoughts on an engine swap, or all new drive-train/transfer case to give it some muscle. I dont want to go broke though. Hopefully this WK turns into the 4-wheelin machine I want it to be.
