Hello everyone! After wanting a Wrangler since the young age of 14, on 11/24/2014 I picked up my 2015 2-door Firecracker Red Sahara and I couldn't be happier.

I'm not 100% set on where I want to go with this build, but as I keep doing things I keep getting new ideas, so I want to document them here. This will be a slow build since I'm still in College and I need to focus on my studying first (as hard as that is having a sweet Jeep outside begging me to play with her) but I have big aspirations!

On the to the mods that have been done in the first 10 days of ownership:

First mod: MOPAR Black Fuel Filler Door:

Then I got sick of the huge antenna, so I replaced it with a 7" black AntennaX:

Thanks to Amazon Prime I was able to get a sweet deal on the following:

And completed last night was the Gutter Guard Grill Mesh "mod":

And this was taken this morning in my driveway. I just want to show how crazy the Firecracker Red is in the sunlight. I've already had three people come up to me asking if the car is "red" or "red and orange"!

Next I plan on getting a lift and a set of wheels and tires. Since I have the 3.21 I can't decide between getting 35s and rehearing later down the road, or getting 33s and just be happy with them until i get a job and can do more. I've heard all about the "regret" of getting 33s and not 35s, also how much of a dog the jeep is with 3.21s and 35s... Luckily I have some months to decide so we shall see!!

Thanks! I'm looking forward to it, that stinger bumper is awesome, which kind is it? I'm looking at the Smittybilt Stinger but I would appreciate recommendations for better stuff! Wanted to keep it around the $500 price..

Thank you! I'm loving it so far, I decided to go with 33s instead (pictures below) just to stay on the safe side of wear and tear. Once I get a steady paycheck I will probably make the jump to 35s!

Thanks!

UPDATE:

I installed ProComp RockKrawler 98s 16x8 with some Duratrac 285/75/16 tires. I love the look, now I'm looking into a 2" lift! I also forgot to put in the center caps before mounting the wheels, I will be doing that on Friday after my last exam!
