Initial Upgrades on a 3.7
Hey guys..2nd real post on here..just picked up my 2006 WK with about 62k miles on it from my stepdad. It's in great shape, but I'd like to start exploring some mods. Have big upgrade plans for the stereo but not sure what types of performance upgrades are worth the money on a 3.7.

The few I'm targeting are...
1. CAI - sounds like K&N Is really the only option here, what are people's thoughts on how that sounds? I know it offers minimal effects on performance but i think it toughens up my jeep a little :)

2. Front sway bar - regardless of the engine this seems like a no brainer.

3. Throttle body? - Having a little trouble understanding where the perks of this exactly are but I keep hearing everyone say its a must-do.

I know the 3.7 isn't the ideal 'modders' engine which is fine. Quite frankly I'd rather get more life out of my jeep than anything else. In that respect, my last question would be, what type of effect do minor mods like those above have on the longevity of the car? Do people run into any more issues than stock usually?

thanks in advance guys!
