Where to begin?

Being that I've had my first Jeep under a week (2007 Unlimited X) and that its pretty bare bones, the mods are going to come quick and heavy. Plans for cold-air intake, 1.5in budget lift, nerf bars, brush guard etc. etc. Anyways I have two big questions. 1st being is there anyone that has had any experience adding a cruise control to their 07? I've read mixed reviews on both brands and the installation process. I won't put many HW miles on it but I do have a long trip coming up and would love to have cruise for it. 2nd question, best place to order from. Most of the mods will be stuff that I'm going to be able to do myself so cost will be most of the issue. I've found a few places but just wondering if there were any hidden jewels out there that people use to order from.

Mioght save thousands of dollars like I already have & check out the "Mods to avoid" on the forum. That cold air intake sounds like it really aint gonna do much for the JK.........

Ya might CK with Jeep, they may offer an a CC kit as an accessory. It's been my experience that OEM access. are often better quality.

Dont do brush guard, CAI, or steps.

Go with an aftermarket bumper. They are more expensive, but unlike most brush guards, they offer actual protection for off roading and in case of an accident.

Go with Sliders instead of step rails. Sliders are also more armor and protect the vehicle.

You can get the stock Rubi sliders. They are not as expensive as some but
probably don't offer as good protection either. They do work though.

I have heard that the Jeep CC was a better more reliable install. I'll take any advice you guys throw my way and I'll definately check out the mods to avoid thread. This site is fantastic!

I had the dealership install the Mopar Cruise Control on my '07 X and it works great. Took them about 30 minutes, and looks like it came that way from the factory.
