Building a New Wish List

Greetings all Jeep Owners! So now that I am keeping my 2012 Jeep Liberty Limited Latitude 2WD Black, I am building a new wish list. Im thinking of doing cosmetic things first, then a couple of performance things. My Liberty isnt going to be for off road really since its 2WD. Wheels, nice tires, maybe plasti dip the chrome pieces on the exterior for that blacked out look. So Im asking you all for some suggestions! Thanks in advance!

To start on your bumper. If you travel in very dark areas you will soon realize that the headlight system we have is pretty much one step higher than sucks. If you have the OEM fog lights then it is two steps above sucks.

At the least you gonna want extra driving lights on your bumper. Perhaps even the long range like myself and others have.

At the very least, if you haven't done so already, upgrade your headlights to a better bulb. It will make the world of difference.

Some other ideas (not too expensive but pretty cool):
Weathertech in-channel vent shades: http://www.weathertech.com/jeep/2008...ow-deflectors/
Hood strut mod (if you plan on doing your own maintenance under the hood, this rocks): http://www.jeep4x4center.com/hoodift...war905020.html
Some nice AT tires like Cooper Discoverer A/T3's (stay at 29 inch tires if not lifted)

Rescue, your aux light setup using the JK light bar rocks. Got a link to the install instructions and long-distance lights you are using? Hopefully not too much of a thread hijack on my part, as this will help the OP too...

So Rescue, where is your install show on the JK light bar install? We really want to see that! It would also be a great place to mount my blue LED lights as well instead on the grill. Thanks
