$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?

87 w/ 258 5spd. Weber 32/36. TFI upgrade. 4" Skyjacker lift w/quick disco's. 1" DayStar bodylift. Rancho 9000's. 33x12.5 ProComp muds. Oil stained driveway!!

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
