First 3 mods?

New to the forums and the jeep world itself, i have not fully looked into each part or performance shop. Most of you have great knowledge about this vehicle and have many mods so here is my question. What should be the first 3 mods i should look into getting? i need the best bang for the buck. Every other vehicle i had was a CAI and catcback exhaust. what could benefit me the most on the jeep. I heard they have some type of performance chip or something that would be good for the truck. any suggestions?

Tstat, Catch can, intake, tuner with custom tune. Best bang for the buck mods.

^^^^ what Skip said. Catback is the must have "fun" mod. No real performance gains form them.

Skip is right on and for get the catback exhaust unless you want to make more noise as it also seems that a lot of jeep lose some hp n tq down low. I dynoed with 3 other jeeps at the same time from the same dyno tuner and i dynoed at 368hp and 1 dynoed at 360hp and the other 2 at 361hp and 2 had borla and 1 had corsa catbacks and i have stock exhaust and all 3 had B WOODY cai and i have a GSM cai.

The best mail order tunes are from one of three guys on here, Johan(diablotoona), Joel(jerseyboy), and AJ(hemituner)...that's who the majority of the guys on here use.

Perfect, Im also a newb and was just about to ask the same question. Just to add to it,what would you guys say is the best tuner? I see a lot of guys mentioning Trinity so im thinking thats where im going to start. I also saw in another post that you might as well get the 180 T-stat from your local parts store rather than ordering online as its virtually the same thing at 1/3 the cost.

I'm really trying to help you guys when I say this, use the SEARCH BUTTON. I was told to use the search button at my first meet before I even knew about this forum. I would say 95% of the questions you have, have been answered before. Google search will even bring up links to this forum for your questions and almost works better sometimes than the search button here. Trust me you will learn a ton as I did.

Thanks Semper, I had'nt even thought about google for this. I was not having much luck with the search function on the forums.
