without knowing what you use your jeep for, its very difficult to give an opinion, or even a guess....

i plan on using my jk for camping, so one thing i will add for sure is a table that goes on the rear door...

How about some dirt? Use it until you bend or break something then get out the Visa card.

Go out on the trail, have fun, and if you break something, you'll know what you need to get next.

If your having trouble figuring out what you need....then you don't need anything !


Building a capable off road Jeep is easy...building a street legal one that you can drive two hours away to wheel and then drive to work the following morning is the challenge...

I would be looking at beefing things up. No sense in having the goodies like your lift and tires if you can beat it up offroad occasionally without fear of breaking something

ball joints like Synergy
axle shafts or at least tack the caps on your stock shafts
tie rod
drag link
brakes(BR6 upgrade looks to be decent for not much money)

Did you re-gear?

Basically you have lift, wheels, tires, bumpers, audio, and lights. So, I would look at cages, suspension seats, different tops, rooftop tents, ARB awning, ARB fridge, underseat and cargo storage (racks, shelf, drawers, etc.), Safari Straps, and Line-X.

I didn't catch if you have a 2 door or 4 door...

If you plan to wheel, 1st thing is get a skid plate for your engine & trans. Steel or aluminum. Whatever floats your boat, but get something under there.

Gas tank skid next. If you run a 4 door, get one quick. I beat the living sh!t outta my stock one so bad, it was a [email protected]$h getting an aftermarket skid plate on there later.

How about chromoly axle shafts? Lockers? Gears? On board air (this can go with lockers, just add a 2.5 gal tank)?

If you're talking about looks, Poison Spyder hood louver are drop dead sexy IMO. Also, some TeraFlex Alum rock sliders. Adds a functional step and some protection for wheeling. If you wheel hard, get metal ones like Croawler Concepts/PSC/GenRight/etc.

I also love the look of the Trek Top NX on my 4 door. The new hybrid Trek Top would be top on my list.

As mentioned before, without knowing how you intend to use your jeep, it's kinda hard to point you in the right direction.

Sounds like you have a sweet rig, but a stock rubi may embarrass you on some obstacles due to lockers ( unless you have a rubi and forgot to mention). So add some lockers and call it a day. Trust me they are worth it.

re : where to go with my JK now

wherever the f*ck you want .....beat the livin snot outta it and then get somethin when you run across a deficiency or viable inadequacy ... you don't realy think we all sit around pondering parts as one would a whoopdee or a Testor model kit , right? As Assmns so succinctly put it ," if you're TRYIN to figure out what ya need to buy for it , ya likely don't need anything yet...."

( unless you're shooting for something like this ?



jeep on , man
