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.

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.........
