I just traded in my 2000 WJ for a slightly used 2012 JK and could not be happier right now. My transmission was going out on the WJ as well as a broken axle bearing seal, needed new tires, needed new brakes/rotars... So I figured I would get rid of it now before the transmission blew and it wouldn't be worth anything. My buddy told me they had this modded jeep up at the lot, so I went for it.
I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty new to all of this. I've been fourwheeling ATV's for approx 8years and now I've upgraded . Any recommendations would be awesome!
4" lift kit (dont know the brand)
34" Nitto Terra Grappler
18" Moto Metal Rims
Bushwacker fender flares
Cold air intake
exhaust (dont know the brand)
Rockers (dont know the brand)
Skid plates (they had "ProR" on them)
Tinted soft top windows
Best advice I have for you is just to drive it and enjoy it for a bit first. Take it wheeling, see what you like, what you don't like, what needs improving and go from there! Looks like a pretty good starting point!
Too much lift for the tires. Two inches will do it and at four in you need a lot of parts $$$$. Also read the forum first as CAI were voted the worst mod you can do as they do nothing on the JKs.
