The New Guy with info and much needed comments

Helllloooooooo fellow JK owners!!!

I bought my 07 JK 4 door a few months ago and have been leisurely figuring out what to do with it.

I currently run a 2.5" TF BB with D.C. torque wheels and 33" mud country tires. I have a Gibson twin tip exhaust which sounds pretty good. I will be installing a rack by wild boar.

I'm currently saving up for changing out the BB for a TF 4" LA kit because I didn't know what I wanted the first time around. I am also looking into getting a wild boar front bumper and Smittybilt XRC 10.0 HD Winch, Smittybilt Rear SRC Bumper, TF Big Break Kit, Eaton performance Elocker, and 4.56 gears.

My future projects include installing a beefy D44 front or just putting in D 60's in front and rear when I convert from a 2wd to 4wd. I even hope to drop in a hemi. I am hoping to start these projects in the next year or two.


All comments are welcomed on the products I mentioned above. Please let me know what you think and any advice would be great.

Sorry for the randomness before....JK talk gets me excited

Welcome to JKO. I forget what was most important on your list. Kinda all over the board. Depends on if this is your DD. Uhm.... 4wd drive important, what Dana is in rear? You could get away with 44's for awhile.

Póg mo thóin!

I fixed my post...sorry for the randomness

The rear is a 44 and it is my DD. 4wd is really important but I feel like I could go without it for a lil while. I'm in school right now so I don't get out much. I guess that's why I want to set up the rig with everything else first. I want to do the 4wd conversion right the first time with a beefy 44 front or do 60's, but it will have to be later on when I have more cash.

Thank you and sorry again for the messy first post
