Hey guys & girls!!
I'm new to the Jeep Wrangler world, but not new to Jeeps, nor to Mopar!!
As you can see from my sig, I'm currently a "3 SRT" owner. I'm a moderator on another forum, and a vendor on 7 other sites. So I'm not new to the forums or modding a vehicle, just simply new to the Jeep Wrangler world, itself.
And recently my wife and I found out she's pregnant!! However, my wife plans on NOT going back to work, so that changes some things in our financial layout. I'm currently THINKING of selling the 300 & the Charger (MY TRUE BABY). Whereas my wife will continue driving the SRT Cherokee as her daily driver. And that leaves ME looking for something new to drive as a daily driver. And in my world, I won't drive it, if I can't modify it, and I won't modify it, if I can't make it look badass. Which leads me here.......
In looking for a vehicle that has parts readily available to personalize it, and something that can be modded to be tough as hell, and for under $40k, have every option, I'm lead to the 4-door Wrangler. I'm specifically looking at either a Mojave (fugly decals removed, of course, lol) or a 70th anniversary.
Now for the questions:
I don't plan on changing the suspension or doing a lift kit, but I'd like to get a "wider & meatier" stance on the OEM setup. What's the widest & meanest size tire I can do on the stock 17" wheels & stock suspension?? 305??
I know most of the mods done to these vehicles usually aren't for power, they're for suspension and off-road capability. But for a guy like me, that would like to get a few more ponies out of the 3.8L V6. What air intake & exhaust systems are available? Or what other "go-fast" parts do you guys recommend??
What vendors or websites, do you guys recommend I go to, for performance parts??
Thanks for listening, and thanks up front for any help you all can provide!!!
