4" Foundation Series Kit for 1997-2006 Wrangler TJ by Iron Rock Off Road

4" Foundation Series Kit for 1997-2006 Wrangler TJ by Iron Rock Off Road

When people think of off-roading one of the first vehicles that come to mind is the Jeep Wrangler.  Modifying and upgrading your Wrangler can be an ongoing process in making it perform better while also becoming the ultimate off-road vehicle.  There are many different aspects that can be modified and improved in order to create the best off-roading vehicle possible, there are so many that beginners may begin to feel overwhelmed by all of the options available to them.  To help make the process easier on you, we are going to offer you some of the most common upgrades that should be made first.

The first thing you should do is to lift your Jeep, this can be done either by taking it to a mechanic who has experience working with off-road vehicles, or if you are mechanically inclined you can perform the lift on your own.  There are two types of lift kits to choose from, suspension lifts or body lifts.  A body lift is used to raise the body of your Jeep while leaving the suspension in its original position.  A suspension lift is used to add a higher suspension system to your Jeep.  Jeep lift kits are designed to provide your Jeep with more ground clearance and to make your vehicle more manageable on the off-road trails.

After you have chosen and installed a lift kit, the next modification you should make is to your tires.  In order for your vehicle to perform at its best while off-roading you should choose a set of tires that will provide you with the traction and performance necessary to enjoy your time on the trails.  Once you lift your Jeep the stock tires will look a little out of place, this is why you should purchase a set of larger tires that will improve your stability on the trails as well as making your vehicle look even better.

The next modification that many off-roaders add is a winch.  If you are planning to spend a lot of time on the trails it is likely that you may become stuck.  Installing a winch on your Jeep will allow you to pull yourself out of tricky situation.  A winch also comes in handy if any of your friends should become stuck, you will be able to help them.  Having your own winch can save you hours of waiting for someone else to come along and help you.  These are only a few of the most common upgrades that off-roaders make to their vehicles; if you are a beginner these are great places to begin your modifications.
