I guess I'll have to say a sleeper... slightly modified mainly because of $$$ restraints.
My set-up is a good compromise for highway and trail use. As it sits, it works very well for the moderate to slightly difficult trails I run. If I had more $$$ to put into my Jeep, which I don't, I'd like to go from a 2.0" coil spacer lift with 33" M/T's to a 4" coil lift with all the associated upgrades riding on 37's. I've spent a over $4k on mods and equipment so far and I need another $3k to finish my wish list.

Most of my mods and improvements are not really apparent unless you know about Jeeps, JK's in particular. Here's what I've done so far.........

My '08 Jeep Wrangler JK X 6-speed with all the mods listed below

Mods completed:

- Debadged (only club decals, got groceries? sticker, and USAF badges remain)
- Yukon 4.56 gears (replaced the crappy stock 3.21 gears)
- BFG M/T KM2 285/75-16 tires (33x11.5)
- Eagle Alloy 16" brushed aluminum wheels
- Rubicon Express 2.0" coil spacer lift w/monotube shocks
- Mopar Rubicon rock rails
- JKS sway bar quick disconnects
- TeraFlex heavy duty steering stabilizer
- Optima red top battery
- DayStar spare tire bump stops
- DayStar heavy duty hood latches
- Mopar door sill guards
- Mopar gas cap door cover
- Mopar heavy duty slush mats
- MasterCraft grab handles
- Front and rear axle vent tubes extended
- Cargo stop installed behind the front seats
- Vanity mirrors permanently installed on the sun visors
- Shorty 8" AM/FM antenna

Extra Stuff:

- Staun tire deflators
- Masterflow 12v air compressor

- 3' FireStik antenna

Wish list:

- Power Tank 10# Co2 system
- 4 KC Hi Lite off road lights
- Front and rear off road bumpers
- Oil pan skid plate
- Evaporator skid plate or relocate it
- Relocate muffler

'06 Jeep KJ Sport... w/some stuff
