Seriously, Leo, if you want to retain your warranty, the only mods I see you making are headers, and maybe a pcm flash.

Our GC already comes with headers, but some members have seen results with Kooks long-tube headers.

Most members agree that in order to see improved gains, the PCM must be unlocked and reprogrammed. However, currently, a bona fide and performance-proven tune is not available. I recommend you save your money and wait for a hand-held tuner. Only a tuner will take full advantage of your modifications, as well as unlock our truck's complete potential.

PS: Dealerships are ambivalent about PCM tunes nullifying the warranty; you better check with them beforehand.

Re: what new mods after cai and exhaust?

Congrats on the purchase of the Jeep Dude. You are headed in the right direction with the CAI and cat-backs. Just chill out, enjoy the Jeep and wait for the PCM flash. Now all you need to do is lay off the weed and hit the little spell check button, and there is always that hooked on Phonics thing that Untouchable mentioned.....

Seriously though! Welcome to the forum and keep writing those novels - fun stuff. Just don't stick your "pointer finger and thumb" at me because I will get mad and cry!

No, Leo, it was a massacre

I know I should choose tougher competition, but beggars can't be choosers.
