I know big tires would change the look but I'm reluctant to do that... I'm a whooping 5' 1" and this is my daily driver. I work a professional job and - I wear a skirt everyday to work and really can't be slinging my leg up into my Jeep.
It's a wrangler sport. not rubicon, I'm just not that much of an off roader
I was thinking of something on the front to change the look of the bumper, push bar or brush guard, etc
My old Jeep drove like a Jeep, sounded like a Jeep, looked like a Jeep.... I feel like this isn't a Jeep it's too quiet and comfortable - after this weekend I'll put the soft top on and I hope some wind noise will make me feel more at home
I can appreciate some of your challenge- I'm a stodgy banker during the day and don't want to get too extreme.
I am exactly a foot taller than you- and I only wear skirts for YSB, but I might be able to help.
I have been on the fence with getting new wheels for my rubicon, they have 3500 miles on them. The wheels combined with spacers really toughen up the look and I don't think they add that much height to the jeep.
I also have a BB but Greg has first refusal on that- you might have to sweet talk them away from him.
I also have Rubicon springs and shocks- again, a little height and a better ride, we could get you looking like a tough rubicon JK for not too much $$.
Let me know if you want to talk about any/all!
If you want to be a little more jeep like, drop that cannon sized muffler and replace it with a magnaflow- I paid a mexican exhaust shop about 125 to do that. It's not loud- but it does sound more like my YJ.
I am heading up to Tahoe for the summer near the end of the month- so if you want to work through any/all- shoot me a message.
