$3500, reasonable things to do?

So, I come into $3500 next week hopefully, and I'm looking into some things to do to my Jeep. My primary concern right now is getting off these ****ty stock wheel/tires, and getting lifted with some more meat under me

I'd like a moderately conservative lift (no SOA ****...maybe a Rubicon 4.5"?), decent sound system (I don't even have a sound bar yet )

So help me out...with a Rubicon lift, where do I get an SYE and new CV driveshaft? How much will they cost? What tires/wheel should I go with?

My jeep is black, w/gray soft top

You don't have to get the SYE for just a 4.5" lift. If you do get it, 4wd or Quadratec has em. Plan on another $1K for the parts. As far as wheels and tires. You need to tell us what you want to do with it. Daily driver? Mud? Rocks?

I'm putting on the RE 4.5" and picked up an AA SYE and Tom Woods driveshaft for $550 from Tom Woods. If you feel mechanical, do it yourself, or get it all installed for about 2k including the parts. Don't pay more than $850 for the lift, RE will give you that price.

sorry guys, I should have been more specific...

I drive the thing Daily, so daily-driver status is kinda needed, however I also drive it to the lake on a weekly basis...and I'd like to take it mudding and whatnot. Mud is the primary, and rock crawling is 3rd, after daily
