I've been told everything from Cooper Zeon to Nitto Terra Grapplers; basically I want a tire that will wear well (~60 mile per day commute) but look aggressive and be able to hold its own off road, if albeit minimally. I had m/t baja belteds on an old Blazer and the tires were eaten alive.
Other thoughts are C8 Lockpick to unlock the nav/head unit, pipe dreams of retro-fitting WK2.5 headlights (they "fit", just with a gross gap, someone needs to make a filler plate), Altitude grille, some sort of exhaust... magnaflows are pricey but seem well regarded, and wheels and tires at some point beyond replacing the stocker tires.
Not expecting crazy gains from an N/A v6. intake/exhaust would give it a good growl though I'm told, and some more pep
At any rate, just thought I'd say what's up and toss a few pics of the car on here
Just my $0.02.
JW Speaker LED fog lights are a must.
The output is at least 100% better than the wimpy OEM fogs.
Exhaust - go for the V8 dual exhaust, but add in the aftermarket Diablo engine tune/reprogram to reap full benefit. Dual exhaust alone will mean losing low end torque/power.
After reading and researching tires...
Once the OEM 18" Michelins are worn out, I'm going with the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar in the OEM size.
