Any info. is appreciated. (Apologies for thread jacking).
I don't know much about the newer ones. The Disco I and II and the Defender had a lot weak points and failures including wheels sensors, abs pump, plenum on the intake, drive shaft, headliner, air suspension compressor and bags, head gasket and the list goes on. You won't find a 75k Disco II that hasn't had all of those things and more replaced. I wouldn't buy a new Land Rover. The old ones had a charm that made you put up with the shortfalls just like jeeps do. The new ones don't so I wouldn't buy one.

tires for these things are expensive. And you have to get five of them.

I'm going to get them. Just sayin' they're expensive. I've never put an aftermarket anything on a car so I was caught a little off guard by the price.

Look at Goodyear duratrac tires. They are a great tire as far as I can tell and priced lower than most other. Trail diggers are another supposedly bad tire made by cooper that is cheap

For now: Teraflex 2.5" with rancho RS9000 adj shocks, after market alpine touch head unit, alpine amp. And kicker 6.5" in dash and sound bar. 17x9 wheels and tires. I'm debating on front and rear bumpers now or wait a bit. Or get bumpers now and wait on stereo. I only have about 6k on hand at the moment for parts and I can't say I want to blow it all right now

That's going to look nice when you're done. I thought I wanted crazy wheels and a lift but couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger. Cheaped out and am picking up a set of stock rubicon hard rock edition wheels and tires off craigslist. Have to do something about this stereo. My alarm clock has better sound. Even the upgraded one sounded like only it had a sub so it was deep .

I like stock wheels, I'm still looking for a fair priced set of 5th Gen SR5 wheels for my 4Runner. When I find the right set, these Methods are gone!

What size and off set are they?

My wife has SR5 wheels and I have TE Ed wheels with 1.25" spacers.

so, I can't afford a new rig....so I gotta go used and I'm in no rush, but now have the bug. It'll be a 3rd pleasure vehicle anyhow. That said, are there high and low points throughout the year for Jeeps just like bikes? What I do know, I ain't settling for a 4 cylinder. straight inline 6 for me.

Just picked up a set off a new jeep for $800. Fair price. Stripped the wheel lock key trying to take off the other ones though. were on there tight. Going to mess with it tomorrow. Came with bfg mud terrains. Pretty good price considering the wheels alone are $250 new and there are 5 of them. Some floor mats, side steps, and new speakers and I'm done. For those that just got one, flip the carpeted cargo mat over. It actually a rubber cargo mat on the other side with a jeep logo on it.

If it was for pleasure only I would like to get an old cj to permanently tear the tops and doors off of and beat the living out of. The newer ones are too pretty to do anything too crazy.

Rob,
Dont waste the coin on the kickers unless you are dead set on just wanting them. The factory speakers sound really good with just replacing the head unit.

Are you getting the 9 speaker upgraded sound package?

Yea this guy beat me to the punch, but he's right. I have the kickers in my sound bar and they made no difference.
