I've been running 32's for a while now and its time to regear to get my power back and plus I've never done work to my diff's so it should be quite the adventure putting new gears in. The bumpers will add the look that I want while providing the performance off road for what I will be doing. And the CAI is just for a little extra kick for my 4 banger.

Front and Rear Bumper Upgrades
A Set of Aftermarket Fender Flares
A 2.5 Inch Lift With a Set of 33 Inch NITTO's
OEM Style Rock Rails
A Safari Bikini Top for the Summer (Currently Have a Hard Top With No Garage)
Light Bar and Mounts with KC or other brand Hilites

I just got my first Jeep around two weeks ago, (2008 Wrangler Sahara) and I love everything about it. Currently its all stock, but I am looking forward to putting various mods on it. I want it to look great and be able to handle basic off-roading. I'm constantly researching a lot JK builds and getting different ideas. I have high hopes for my Jeep. It'll come together slowly but surely.

What if we are members of both forums?

My list is fairly simple...

Yukon Ring and pinions
http://www.extremeterrain.com/yukon-gear-d44-488-thick-tj-ygd44488trub.html

Goodyear 37" MTR Kevlars :shhh:
http://www.extremeterrain.com/goodyear-tires-goodyear-gdy750578326.html

Warn 9.5 Thermometric Winch
http://www.extremeterrain.com/warn-95cti-thermometric-self-97550.html

My jeep has changed so much over the last few years. Undoing a half cab conversion and rebuilding it into a capable expedition rig, I had to cut some corners and costs. Like any Jeeper - 37s have always been the dream and just a tad bit out of my budget. Winning would get me within reach of huge tire happiness :D

Thanks for the giveaway :wave:

I have had my wrangler for a very short time and it is completely stock right now. So my list is very large. But thats because I want to do an almost complete rebuild on it. I am going to link my whole list in no specific order.

Well here is my whole list so far. I am sure there is more I will eventually add but so far this is what I have come up with to modify my ride. Currently, I want to get out on the trails so I think I would go for the lift kit or skid plates first.

I guess one of the main ideas is to make perform better. And be a safer Jeep for my family. Who wont let me out the door without asking if they can go too. I too have a long list. But that's what it takes to make of these amazing rigs, even better. Thanks for doing this contest. And good luck to everyone. :wave:

Looking to start the frame off restoration in a couple weeks as the weather is getting better! I have 75%of what I need already for the build. The stuff I have chosen from your website would definitely bring the build finish date faster and to the next level.

Thanks for this opportunity!

My Jeep is essential for my life style and it's my DD. Now that own a YJ my first plan is to replace everything. I'm starting with dependability and replacing all the not so fun stuff like radiators, hoses, belts, alternator ect. Then on to the mods for rock crawling :2thumbsup:

I dont have a Wrangler but if I would qualify for the giveaway I picked out a few things that could work on my ZJ.

http://www.extremeterrain.com/bf-goodrich-tires-bf-mud-t-a-bfg08012.html
http://www.extremeterrain.com/alloy-usa-precision-gear-tj-yj-35d-456.html
http://www.extremeterrain.com/barricade-9500lb-winch-j100204.html

I purchased the Jeep a few years ago and it has been a build in progress since. Was bone stock when I got it, now looks nothing like its old self but could use some more upgrades to increase the wheeling potential.

I definitely could use new tires. 31s on my ZJ now are a little small and quite bald for MTRs with only 1/4 inch of tread depth left. Would like to get a set of 5 new tires in the 33 inch variety. Also chose a dana 35 4.56 ring and pinion for the rear axle in the ZJ and would need to get a 4.56 r&p for a lpd30 still. Regearing would be necessary with the 33s and right now I am stuck with 3:55 gears on 31s and its horribly underpowered on the street and is my daily driver. At this point brings me to my third item I chose being a winch. I need a winch so I chose that for the build as well.

I chose these parts because I need recovery gear for off roading. These brands are well respected and I can trust them in a recovery situation. Good recovery gear can help you get out of bad situations. Being able to recovery yourself and others affects whether you come home late or not.

http://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-recovery-gear-1510425.html

I chose these 3 items, strictly because I only have a hard top for my TJ at the moment and would rather not have to haul the huge thing on and off everytime I want to go topless. The recovery gear kit I chose because everyone needs a decent kit to compliment their winch. I also chose the gearsets because I'm currently running 33'' tires on 3.07 gears with an auto trans. Not a good combo!!

Ive had my Cj for about 5 to 6 months now and I have loved every second of it,even the couple break downs where Ive learned more about it and know what ro do in situations. The products I chose are all for a YJ but I think most of the ones listed will work with my CJ. The reason I chose the first few is cause Im in need of a better ride, the one installed now is plain out too rough. I want to drop the lift and tires and go smaller to have better mileage and be able to drive a little faster than the 60 it goes haha. The other few is to spice up my Jeep and make it into a really sick DD and offroad machine and take it to the next level. 1 pair of long distance lights, 1 pair for driving and another pair of rectangular ones for reverse lights, (as of now dont have any!) It would be great to have some new products on my Jeep and have fun learning how to install everything, especially the gears (never done it before).

Tube doors
http://www.extremeterrain.com/body-armor-trail-doors-tj-tj6135.html

I would pick the RCVs and Detroit because I am saving up to build up an HP30 and the D44 I swapped in last December so that I can run 35s. OBA would be nice because I would easily be able to air up the 35s after I finish a day of wheeling. Tube doors would be nice because I like not having doors at all, but I would like something to rest my arm on.

Got a baby on the way and really want to get some work done to my "First Born" 1985 CJ7 before the little one is here! I've heard Jeep projects get put on the back burner for a few months when that happens.

The CJ is mostly stock, but I could definitely use a winch! Read some great reviews on this one and it's within my budget.

http://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-heavy-duty-8500-1510001.html

Also, I've always wanted the KC Daylighter Smiley's on my rig! I want to mount them to the windshield so I've got a pretty solid view from the driver's seat.

http://www.extremeterrain.com/kc-hilites-black-long-range-100w-238.html

Plus a little more recovery help doesn't hurt. I'll have to find a way to mount this to my rig, but I think it's something every jeeper should have!

http://www.extremeterrain.com/hi-lift-jack-48-7000lb-cast-hl484.html

Woo hoo! Hoping for the best! Can't put an extreme terrain gift card in a college fund, so it has to go to the Jeep!

Count me in! Here's my list of future upgrades

First, I need some larger, more aggressive tires
There should do the trick:
http://www.extremeterrain.com/pro-comp-tires-pro-comp-radial-65031.html

I love these rims - and these should go nice with the new tires
http://www.extremeterrain.com/pro-comp-alloys-7069-tj-yj-pxa70695865.html

Then I go wherever and take the top down and have everything locked up in a Tuffy console: http://www.extremeterrain.com/tuffy-universal-stereo-ii-tj-tfy04101.html

Thanks Extreme Terrain for a killer offer.
