    First Mod

    The First Mod I did was Some side steps. I got some Rugged Ridge Tube Steps

    Looking back I will probably never buy another thing from Rugged Ridge. These steps SUCK! right from the start. I wanted the mate black ones I got the glossy ones. Within the first month they started to rust. after 6 months they crack and creek when you step on them, and I'm not a big guy (130lbs ish). But whatever you get what you paid for right. they were the cheapest ones i could find so.... there's that. Lesson learned.

    live and learn, we all have.... there are some great sight sponsors that will gladly sell you what you want! Check them out
    a learning experience is one of those things that says, you know that thing you just did...don't do that again.

    Preformance!

    Probably no actual performance gains (possible Loss)

    I installed a K&N Short Ram Intake, and a DynoMax axle back Exhaust
    Painted the Exhaust Black.

    Did it for the sound more then anything.

    HID headlights

    This probably was one of the first mods I did I really dont remember the order.

    I got a kit from DDM tuning H13 High/Low Beam 12000K Hid kit.
    Kit works great in warm weather however in the cold occasionally one light wont turn on. its not jsut my kit. I have a total of 8 ballasts Ive used in my Jeep and a friends car they all do it.
    12000K is abit too blue for me so new lights is on my List.

    If i remember correct I broke the clip

    Jesus, is that a plane in the background? I was going to offer my usual "build it yourself, you can do it" comments but it looks like you're financially sorted for J.E.E.P. ownership! LOL

    Looks good so far!
