  2. Sold'99 WJ limited, 4.7L, 3" IRO lift. Bilstein shocks, JK rubicon wheels, 255/70/17's, carolina driveshaft, IRO adjustable control arms, IRO adjustable A-arm
  3. Sold '00 TJ, 4" lift, rusty's adjustable control arms, skyjacker shocks, rock krawler adj. trac-bar,rugged ridge SYE and RE driveshaft, soft 8's, 35" mud king xt's,XJ HP D30 w/aussie locker, 4:88 yukon gears, hella 500's, rock crusher diff covers

Are you really going to wheel it? Or just do some forest type roads?
If you are going to wheel it then we need to know what your current setup is.
Then we can try to advise you accordingly. I do not have 1 extra light on the front of my junk, but do have full skid plates, selectable lockers, long arm suspension, frame stiffeners, and so on. Kind of shows where my priorities lie huh?
Aswell as your current setup, knowing your budget will be a bonus too.

1998 XJ on 37's.JK Rubi axles with chromo shafts and ctm's, 4:1 transfer case, etc etc etc.
2003 Range Rover HSE, 4.4 Quad Cam.
1998 Range Rover with a 6.0 LSx
1994 YJ, 4.3/700R4/OME SOA, etc
Western Star 4900EX 4 axle.
