Bought my very first Jeep a few weeks ago! I've been around them most of my life, been a passenger and have always wanted one. So I figured now is the time, so why not just go for it!

No name for it yet, if y'all got any suggestions let me know!

Only thing I've done so far is the Mopar Black fuel filler door.

Just purchased a set of Pro Comp Xtreme MT2 305/65R17 and Pro Comp Series 29 Satin Black 17x8.5 rims as well as a FlashCal JL

Planning on getting a 2.5" lift, possibly Rough Country but I haven't settled on one yet!

Best part of birthdays?! Jeep parts as gifts!
Got the RC contoured drop steps for my birthday! Hoping to put them on tonight and snag a picture!

Gonna order up the RC 2.5" lift probably today or tomorrow and then its just a waiting game. I'm driving down to Disneyland next month and want the better mileage so gotta wait to put the lift and tires on until then!

How do you like the antenna?
So far so good, haven't had a chance to really get out of the city to test out the AM/FM reception but in the city it is the same as the OEM one.

Got new shoes for the Jeep!

They are a Pro Comp 17x9 La Paz series with Pro Comp MT 305/65 tires!

I think they look great, can't wait for the lift to get here!

How is the fitment of the La Paz wheels? I really like these and am thinking of picking them up. Pro comp does not say whether or not the factory lugs will work. How about mounting to the tailgate? Your setup looks great!

Thank you! They fit great! Minor rubbing when I'm backing up with wheels fully turned, other than that nothing. Factory lugs don't work but the pro comp ones look great!

I found mine on ExtremeTerrain I went with the 21” as some folks on the forum and in the reviews said that the 13” messed with the XM a bit, HOWEVER, some people said it was fine. So mixed reviews on the 13” which I believe is what he has there.

Here’s a link to the one he has:

https://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-13-reflex-stubby-antenna-0717-jk.html

Here is the link to the one I got:

https://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-21-reflex-stubby-antenna-9717-tj-jk.html

Maybe @Saphros can chime in on reception of the 13” for you.

EDIT:

It looks like most people purchased the 15” and the 21”, so, here’s the link for the 15”.

https://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-15-reflex-stubby-antenna-9717-tj-jk.html

*Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with ExtremeTerrain or any other site, just simply showing you where I got mine. I’m sure they are available for purchase elsewhere.
