any MUST do mods???
 
Hi all,

I am new here and am wondering if anyone has some MUST do mods for Suspension/Brakes/Wheels/Tires?

Rear sway bar? Shocks? Lift? Brembo Brakes? Bigger wheels?

What is your favorite mod in this category????

Thanks for your input!

If you have 2wd, lower it. If you have 4wd, lift it. :D

I think the must do mods are any maintenance items that your 6 year old Jeep needs. Also, you can't go wrong with better tires for your particular situation. Good luck and have fun.

Thanks, I like the wheel idea. I have a totally noob questions about the 20" Gloss Black SRT Reps. Does "Reps" stand for "reproductions"? I saw some on ebay for about $649/set. Are those it? Are these the same ones as in your picture DAVY27? Those are legit for sure. My ride is black, so I definitely want some black wheels.

yes they are reproductions and that $650 set on ebay is a great deal! robertpalmer bought his black reps from him and said he was recommended.

SRT Sways, new bushings and end links, are the best bang for the buck for imporoving handling. You can still go offroad, and it will handle much better.

sways do FAR more than the links. rear sway even more than the front. just replace the bushing in your stock links. you can get the sway bars from your dealer for pretty cheap!
