What did I miss

Hello all, been reading the forum here for the last few months to get a feel for what folks do to their Jeeps to make them off-road capable. Finally decided to dive in and start altering my 2000 TJ and I need a sanity check to make sure I am going in the right direction.

Base stats: 2000 Wrangler Sport, 4.0L, Dana 44 rear end, 30" tire group, HD electrical, stick shift

Alterations already completed: 2" body lift, ARB front bumper

Next step: 2.0" Rubicon suspension lift, 33x12.5x15 BFG tires, 15x8 Rockcrawler rims, Warn 8K winch, Warn rear bumber w/ tire carrier, K&N filter system, Rubicon throttle body

Also looking at a rear lockable storage compartment in place of the back seat (tired of folks pilfering my CD's).

This is my only vehicle, so I tried to make sure it would still have a certain level of comfort for the daily drive. Looking at mudding as the main off-raod event, with limited rock crawling.

Any suggestions or something I totally missed?

Re: What did I miss

I think some type of rear locking ( traction) device would be money better spent if your trying to improve its OFFROAD capabilitues better $$ than the KnN and Throttle body.

although if offroad isnt the goal then those mods might be better spent for YOur $$ than more traction

Just my opinion, Iv doen VERY littel wheeling in Tjs

Re: What did I miss

Keep in mind that they are already off-road capable, we just make them moreso. A traction device or two would really help, but in AK you will probably want a selectable one (ARB air or OX) due to the snow and ice you *sometimes* get.

It would help to know what you're building - a Jeep that looks like it goes off-road, or a Jeep that goes off-road.
