"Interesting" new guy introduction & QUESTIONS

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!!!

Howdy Chase! Welcome to Jeep Garage

Congrats to you and the wife on the pregnancy! I never went back to work when I had my youngster either, it certainly did change our financial standings, but well worth it!

I doubt you'll sell the 300 and the charger, your to much in love with them, LOL! The 4 door wranglers are awesome! We looked at them recently as a possible replacement for our Durango.

Now, you being a forum veteran should know the best place for answers is in the appropriate sections, not new member welcomes, right? Sheesh, we gotta teach the newbs everything?
