WELCOME TO JEEPGARAGE!


For headlights I would go with Gen III CCFL Halo projectors with HIDS and for brakes do the Akebono upgrade with rotors from our vendor R1 concepts.

I would also recommended the Addco sway bars with some Bilsteins HD. Other then that, look around and see what you like.

Pretty sure you already have the akebono brakes that became standard 2002-2003. Sway bar- Addco- works for street or off road. Tons of people do the HID projectors I personally don't like the look ...the projectors are fine but halo's bug me. LED taillights are neutral (on/off road) led cabin lights also...from there you have to decide on "style" or "purpose" if you're a street lover you may want to lower, if you're an off roader you may want to lift if you are looking for a great all around truck that doesn't look like the other 3 on the block you may just need to level it and put on some nice wheels & tires... the sky and your bank account are the limits ...happy Jeeping !

Re: What to do??

First things first......... no such thing as enough power so get a tuner and throttle body from flyinryan. Then exhaust and intake. Then as Hacksaw said decide on a purpose/look you want and ask more specific questions regarding how to get what you want. TONS of good info and advice here but in the end its all about what you want.

Re: What to do??

Tail lights...I recommend tinting your stockers and stuffing some LED bulbs in there from VLEDS. One of my favorite mods...
