Best/Favorite aftermarket modification

So I've been looking at countless engine and aesthetic mods from, air filters to tire spacers, and turbos to bumper bars. What do you guys recommend for an increase in engine performance, and for aesthetic appeal.

well depends on what your shooting for. I went with the intake modification first... its cheap and easy and depending on what your doing will solve problems ranging from water in the engine to getting more cold air to it.

From the I raised all my breather hoses, another cheap and easy thing to do and keeps you out of trouble when you want to ford water.

recently I got the 4" JBA lift. It gives the KK a much higher stance. Is narrower than large suvs but just as high now giving it a very tall appearance and don't get me into its handling capability now and smooth ride.

but I went for an off-road rig, and still am. You may not be going that route, so your upgrades may differ.

I personally found the breather lines to be positioned just fine, with the exception of the rear diff one, which I raised up to the gasoline door height.

Most guys here will tell you that there isn't much at all that you can do to the 3.7L to squeeze more out of it. It is what it is. Concentrate on making it better in the rough stuff. i.e. a suspension lift, better tires, tow hooks/hitch, maybe some weathertech liners, etc.

P.S. LOVE your "lady liberty defiantly hoisting an AR" decal!!! F#&% Cuomo! ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ!
