Welcome to the club and congratulations on your first Jeep.

Are you planning to off-road somewhat or are you just a poser? The reason I ask is because it will make a difference in performance depending on how you lift your Jeep for 35’s.

You’re right. I actually thought of that before I typed it but couldn’t think of another word at the time. Funny how bad it looks after someone points it out to you. Sorry rvd502002 I didn’t mean how I said it.

Thanks for pointing it out “posting regulator” (MilitaryJK4455). Now that was intentional but with some humor added. Hope that was ok.

So you've met the gang and you've seen a picture of my Jeep at the show!
Now, how can we help you spend some money?

Welcome , Most would suggest to put your money into regearing rather than intake or exhaust up grades . A catback will give you a better sound maybe a bit better milage but thats about all . Gears and a Super Chip programer are the best you can really do short of a super charger or a Hemi ...........
Your Wrangler is more than capable enough for trails and fire roads right out of the box ....... take it out and have fun.........
