Nice. What’s your first mod?
First mod was a 5" Stubby antenna!
I've also bought a Quadratec recovery bag (straps, gloves, snatch block, etc) and a Smittybilt air compressor and a fast air-down tool from Amazon.
Those aren't really mods, but safety gear I thought was important to have right away.
I'm planning to buy a 10,000lb synthetic winch, winch plate and winch hoop next. I am liking the looks of the new Stealth winch from Quadratec for price / quality. https://www.quadratec.com/p/quadratec/q-performance-stealth-winch

With satellite radio I never saw the need to do anything other than unscrew the factory antenna and turn the base 180 degrees so crap doesn't get on the threads of the mount. I couldn't live without SiriusXM, but I guess lots of people still listen to the radio radio :)

To be honest, I rarely use the radio, but I want it there "just in case". I really listen to a lot of audio books in the Jeep as I did in my previous vehicle. I'm moving next June to cut my commute down, so just about 6 months to go!

I have a POC dated 10-19 that shows "PYV...........HellaYella Clear Coat" as the paint color.

What paint code (3-letter code) does yours show?

FYI, Mopar paint code PYV is indeed called Baja Yellow for the 2015 model year so he may not be wrong, but if I were you I would expect my POC to read exactly as mine does.

FYI2, The same PYV has been widely known as "Stinger Yellow" in Challengers and Chargers.

It’s the right code. Other codes have been reused by Mopar too. They just gave it a more snazzy name. If anything, I’d bet the clear coat finish is different and if you found an older PYV model it could appear slightly different.

Awesome - can't wait for mine.. 2 door Rubicon like you, but with the premium soft top. I'm hoping it will be bitchin enough without 35" tires and a 2" lift, but . . .

And I'm hoping the stock rims (same as yours) are nice enough to not need replacing.

I'm going to put on a 3.5 lift but don't plan on 35's either. Maybe when these tires are wore out. I just got this Wednesday we took it to the Smokey mountains and I avg mpg was 21.4. My TJ got 17 mpg so for a daily driver I don't want to get to far from 20 mpg

Still trying to decide what to do with this Jeep. Meanwhile, another pavement princess pic.

Wow - Hella is VERY yellow!! Lighter yellow than my last Wrangler - which had what they called "Solar Yellow".

Mine will have the black soft top, so not quite as much yellow going on as yours..

My new Hella Yella will be here in about 6 weeks! Enjoy it in good health and safety!!
