Those are your basic, you can get really involved in trying to fix it up. Some search high and low for SRT headers which are less restrictive to put on, but require some work to get them in. MSD coil packs some say are expensive for the benefit, but may allow for a more efficient plug.


I would love to make it an off roader but I would also like a reliable everyday driver. Is there anyway I can make it an off road rig and still an efficient daily driver?

Another quick question. How easy would it be for me to put a Bluetooth single DIN stereo in? That is definitely high on my priority list.

Mine has to be that in the middle ground build, as was my 4.7WK. I have an 08WK Hemi that is my DD and I put about 90 miles per day on it for work. I had Nitto Terra Grappler G2 LT245/75/17 on the old one with the WK Ronin II wheels, I picked up the JK 17" wheels a while back for the new one and will put the same tires on. Any lift you do will knock some MPG's off. If you just want to do some small trails and what not then a small lift, better tires, and a few other items will get you by, just remember once you start tooling with it the more you'll get the "Jeep Experience"

You should be able to get a good media head unit with everything you are looking for on Crutchfield.

Well I will be requiring new brakes, tires, and shocks and struts. Really hoping to have up the money for a lift!

I can tell you for a good price on the shocks and struts stuff talk to Kolak on here, good prices and great to deal with, OME kits are a solid set for WK's. For brakes I use RockAuto, Powerstop makes a pretty nice kit, z23 or z26. One thing to keep in mind is if you need new calipers/rotors/pads and whether to get slotted/drilled or smooth. Slotted/drilled aren't a good idea for any offroading. Don't get heavy duty or fleet for a DD or toy. Tires depends on your requirements/needs I use TireBuyer and have had no issues.
