Congrats on the new ride.. I've had my JK for almost 5 years and the wife is just starting to unass the wallet a little bit more for mods, I think it's mostly to shut me up... Lol

I've found that "disguising" the mods helps. She leaves me the Jeep to change the oil, and comes home to find it 2 1/2" taller. A "rock" hits the headlight....time for HIDS or LEDS. Strategery, that's the key

Dont forget that mysterious puncture in the tire

So far I have her convinced we need to put LoD sliders on it, and maybe a 3" budget lift. She is also saying once we pay off a few more things I can look at getting a 2013 rubi:)

Congrats man :thumb: even if it is hers the effects of Jeep a litus is already showing, its only a matter of time before your credit card will start burning and you wil realize that a 4"lift is but only the start :D no JK stays standard for long here in South Africa we have a guy we call Bad Santa he brings in all the goodies :D reminds me gotta give him a call.

I have waited for 20 years to finally get my jeep. 2012 JK 2 door sport. What finally made my mind up was I watched Moby on Utube and then saw him going down coast hwy in Dana Point, my wife said I looked like a kid waiting for a lollipop! My first mod I did was cut up the front bumper!

Nice job with the test drive. My wife hated my YJ until she drove a new JKU.:D

Congrats on the new JK. I did the same thing about 3 weeks ago. But first I took my wife for a test drive in an old CJ that bounced all over the place and she was very happy to say yes to a new JK later.

Same here. We both drove a Kia Sorento and then we each drove the Jeep and both of us had these goofy smiles and knew what we were getting. Congrats!

Turns out its almost impossible to get a rubicon here right now, there were two available one was not what we wanted, the other is at another dealer but they won't part with it to another dealer. Our only other option is factory order but they figure it will take 6 months! So we will be keeping the sport, maybe instead of 37's I'll go 40's on pr60's

Sorry to hear that man! Everything happens for a reason :thumb:. Sounds like you already have an idea of where you want to take the sport. :yup:

Thanks guys, here's a starter list of what I'd like to do with the jk, going to start with armour first, it will take a while to save up for the rest so my list might change and hopefully by then I'll have decided on 37's or 40's. I'm leaning towards 37's because I think the pro rock 60's will leave me to wide for the trails around here.15374

My teraflex levelling kit came in from northridge yesterday so I'm tackling that this weekend, I want just a bit more to get me by till I can get my lift, which I have decided on the currie 4" short arm to go with the bolt on coil overs

sweet congrats. I can't wait to get something else for mine. I've been trying to think of things I can make and not piss the wife off. I'm considering the saying its easier to ask forgiveness than permission lol.

I used to use that one, the wife just got more mad, it's easier now to just say hey this is what I'm doing, less fights:) I showed her how much my supension is going to cost, she said not to bad.

You need to go big or go home. Take that mystery tire puncture or oil change into a magic 4 inch lift concept...and let your current car roll of a cliff. Let's get you that rubi next week! I would do it :p jokes aside. Congrats!! Order a Northridge 4x4 catalog and leave it on the coffee table for her. Or leave the web page up on "accident"

I have to sell my tj now so I can get some more goodies, first two items are going to be an evo 1/4 pounder so I can get my winch mounted, and a set of LOD sliders, I told her I'm ordering them now because it takes 4 to 6 weeks to get them, so this way they will be here just after I sell the tj:)

Congrats. I was able to fight the urge to mod for about a month before I started doing cheap/free mods. 3 months later I purchased and installed a lift, new front bumper, etc. It is addicting but a lot of fun personalizing your rig.
