First Mod/Upgrade?

3925 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Hypocrite
So what was (if you already have your Renny) or will be (for those still waiting) your mod or upgrade to your Jeep?

I think my first thing will be to put some beefier tires on it. Seems like the quickest & easiest thing to do to get a bit more lift on it. Coming from a Wrangler with over-sized tires & a 2" lift, not having to step up to get in seems so weird :laugh: Granted the Renny will never be as high as that but a bit of a boost, until lift kits come out in the USA, will be nice.

I'm not sure it is that kind of car.
Likely beefier tires. Not sure if I'll do it with the 17' aluminum wheels that came with my Renny-Lat, or an alternate set. Tirerack.com seems to be quickly building their wheel+tire sets. I'll surely be getting a set of winter wheels+tires from them.

Been thinking about doing some plasti-dip work; grill, door handles, side mirrors, roof, and designs/templates

I really want one of these, http://madnessautoworks.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=1_2&car=JR&product_id=608

So many toys, so much to do, so little time, LOL, :)

Tires were first on my list. Got some Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S 225-65-R17's for my Trailhawk. A grippier-looking tread, and roughly half an inch taller and slightly wider than the stock tires. No modifications necessary.

Looks good. What brand and size did your Trailhawk originally ship with?
Goodyear Wrangler SR-A 215/65/R17.
