Got the Money, time to start Modding!

Hey everyone, I have had my 07 Wk 4.7 Larado since November, and I finally have some money saved so I can start modifying it. I have looked into all the basic mods like Intake, exhaust, and the Superchip Flashpacq. I even looked into some more advanced mods like the Flying Ryan throttle body spacer and other things.
Im looking on some advice/opinions on what I should do first, or maybe some other things I should look into.

My local muffler shop said that all I need to do for exhaust is change the muffler and don't need to do a whole system since all of my pipes look great. They recommend the Flowmaster 50 series.
Thanks a head of time.

You may want to consider getting your Throttle Body Ported.

Re: Got the Money, time to start Modding!

Upgrade the suspension first and make sure all the maintenace is done first and foremost. Replace any worn out way bar bushings, end links, diff mount, etc..... An aftermarket muffler will just cost $ and make noise with no power gains, a TB spacer wont do anything other than make a loud whistle, similarly with no power gains.

My Jeep only has 39k on it, and all the maintanace is current. Its a 2 wheel drive so what kinda suspension upgrades would I want to look at. I guess I should say that I want to put 22's on it sooner or later.

Superchips is the best bang for your buck, great performance and great mpg gain. How much are you looking to spend?

Re: Got the Money, time to start Modding!

the sways will tighten up the ride sooooo much/ the stock bars suck and it is a cheap/easy mod to do.

Stiffer with much improved handling yes, smoother, no. The B woodies exaggerate the bumps a lot.

Re: Got the Money, time to start Modding!

Also, if you combine with 22's, it will handle better, but will be slower accelerating (wheels are much heavier) and will be much rougher over bumps...
