this forum is open to ideas. you may get bashed but not banned.
anyway, here is my take. I am from the WK world but its mostly the same.
1. about 90% of Jeep owners dont ever MOD a thing. bought and sold in the same condition. i mean they might buy some mats or little stuff like that but thats it.
and probably for no other reason than they use the Jeep to get from A to B safely and soundly. These types mostly have their Jeep full serviced, oil and all, at the stealer.
2. thenyou have the other 10% . Now of this 10%, 9.95% will do some small mods; LED bullbs, HIDs, CAI, exhaust, stereo, simple maintenance. trying to stay within mfg warranty as they are paying off a ~35-45K vehicle and are scared to lose it. Some even go a bit further then get reined in once they need to go in for warranty and the dealer threatens to remove their warranty because of some mod.
3. that leave .05% for anything outside the box, or inside the block, if you will
BUT since its such a small % with the JEEP you get very little vendor support unless that .05 goes UP like say in a car like a charger or ar a Challenger.
thats my take. so if you are looking for more than that, move on. you wont find it here. and BITCHING about it wont help except get you some BASHING BACK/
Become the thought leader in the area. do YOUR MODS and dont WORRY about what everyone else is doing. you want a CAM, contact Modern Warfare Perf in the vendor area and get yours going. post up before and after dyno or track results. That will MAKE others follow you.
thats how you get and find like minded people. put your shit on display and they will follow if they are interested. and if not; who cares you got your stuff.
last point; i have learned a lot of lessons modding vehicles over the last 30+ years. just do what you want and be proud of it; some will appreciate it; some will loathe it; some will copy it; and some will try to. its all part of it. and I am not just saying it; i have been there. I have a bunch of mods that 99.95 say 'he's crazy' but that .05 know what it took/takes and can truly apprecaite what you have done.
