Ok, I will check the classifieds and see what I can find. I was planning on using either bf goodrich all-terrains or interco TrXus sts all terrain radials. as far as lights go, what are good for grill mounting?

Go with the AT KO's. Quieter, better fuel economy, road wear, wet and dry pavement manners than the more aggressive mud lug tires. If you are after fuel economy, skip the lift for reasons stated in a prior post. In case you haven't been watching the news, word is gas will easily hit $4 US a gallon by spring. I average 15 mpg highway in my lifted XJ (4.5" on 32" AT KO, 3.55 w AW4) and I don't even have the added weight of aftermarket rock bumpers, tire carriers or a big parachute of a cargo rack carrying enough lighting to cover a night time Pop Warner football game.

If you really want to wheel, find a beater, tag it, lift it, lock it, protect the rockers, tank, tranny and t-case then beat the snot out of it. You will find wheeling without worrying about how carnage may prevent you from getting where ever the day after and spending tons of money to protect sheet metal and paint VERY LIBERATING.

Yeah, I have been watching about the riots and gas prices. I may just go with standard AT tires and buy new exhaust and grill lights. Besides that, probably will leave it stock. had anyone run an engine control module? like a hypertech? cause im interested in finding out if they work

So as of now, my plan is to run BFG AT KO 30's (hopefully fits stock suspension), replace the entire exhaust from header back with 2.5 inch (family friends are good friends with an exhaust shop that can mandrel bend me the entire thing) new muffler and high flow cat, hypertech power programmer and fog lights with a set of grill lights. Any suggestions for lights, muffler, cat?

I would skip the hypertech programmer. It will do absolutely nothing for you except make your wallet lighter. The exhaust upgrades along with a bored throttle body and better air intake will help more. Also make sure all your ignition components are fresh and all the fluids are as well.

I agree, the programmer is just a waste of money. Go with what was said in the previous post and you should notice some changes.

It is important that you keep up with fluids, and make sure you're plugs, wires, etc are in good shape also!

Well as of 2 months ago, I replaced my plugs with E3's and my distributor and wires with a new accel unit. I'm getting ready to change the oil, the only thing I run right now is synthetic from mobile or maybe royal purple when I can find it for the right price. Also, whats every ones take on replacing the mech fan with an electric set up?
