    Help prioritizing upgrades

    Hello,
    I have been a watching the videos and reading the blog silently for about two years now. It actually had a big effect and I went ahead and bought a 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon last year when they first came out. I plan to go to the Easter Jeep Safari. I have a tight budget for upgrading my jeep and wanted advice about what to spend money on first. I for sure won't have money to do all these by April! but what do you think is a priority? Also will I be able to do top of the world with this car that without significant damage? its rated at 6 I think!

    Plan:
    Winch
    Rock rails
    Diff glide plates
    2 inch lift (Dynatrac or factory)
    wheel spacer

    Welcome to JLWrangler! I would probably do the glide plates, winch, rock rails before the rest. And if you canít do them all I would do it in the order I listed.

    Help prioritizing upgrades

    If you are climbing steep hills at the Safari perhaps add an oil catch can to your list (if you are running the 3.6L).

    I've seen those advertised for the JK's but I've never come across anyone running one of those catch cans. Looks like another Grade 8 bolt upgrade kind of deal to me.

    A catch can for steep hills, lol. OP, please don't listen to this nonsense. Save your money. Catch Cans seem to be the new bling mod to empty your pockets. They have a purpose for certain applications but in regards to Jeeps offroad, I've never heard of such a thing being beneficial.
