what lights? or snorkel or no snorkel? wintch?

hey guys

i am starting to put stuff on my jeep and idk what i should do now. help me out.

i really want like 4 lights and i want a bright light that lights up the trial nicely.
but then again i dont want to spend a million dollars.
are hella 1000 black lights good? whats a alittle cheeper one?

and i have a cold air intake now with the box and i was thinking about getting a snorkel. should i? or is it just a waste if i just take it easy though mud?

and should i get bumbers and a wintch or just forget that stuff???

What all do you have installed currently? I would invest in armer and lockers before lights and snorkel. Recovery is very important also. But the hella 500's are pretty cheap and put out some nice light.

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.
