I bought a 95 zj 4x4 jeep bc me and the wife love all things jeep and i put 2inch spacers in the front with 31 10.5 15 tires on older steel wrangler wheels (I think) . I will be takin it off road here and there and want some lower priced mod ideas for it.

Done so far -
New tires 31 10.5 r15
New starter
Rear tow hitch installed
Replaced all 4 shocks
Replaced 2 front coils.
Replaced both stablilizer bar links
Installed new cd player and new speakers in all 4 doors
Changed seal and filter on transmission changed seal on valve cover

Need done-
Paint rims black ( have paint)
Tow hooks on front (bought hooks)
Spacers for rear (bought)

Would like ideas on brush guard/front bumper that I could mount a winch to

that you could mount a wrench to or that you can mount with a wrench? Gotta be a little more clear, I had to read your post about 3 times to figure out some of the words that were suppose to be there.

It's got the stock bumper now but I don't like it being plastic it's rather it be like a black steel plated bumper

I am going to go ahead and say that it's probably illegal to drive around with a lewd woman strapped to your bumper in every state.

That's what the cargo area is for. Or if you have a truck with a tonneau, they can't escape that way.

Look into the Rough Country winch plate. Good price and solid. JohnnyZJ has one and he did a bit of modification to make it a full bumper.

Also Wats the best way to lift the rear I've heard spacers can break the leaf spring and it needs 2 inch at least. Maybe longer coils from scrap yard?

I have the Rough Country winch plate with the D-ring mounts. It's straight beef. Made my grille guard look like cardboard. A 2.25" BB with 31's will get you a lot of places, that's what I'm running until I upgrade.

I also like this winch bumper on eBay. It's heavy duty and a super good price.

Goto Tomken.com and grab their ZJ Front Bumper With 2" Hitch Mounting point and Tow points. That way, When you do get a winch, you can have it mounted on a Hitch Mount, and then winch from Either Front OR Rear. Why more people don't do this with their rigs, I don't understand...

Probably because you don't need a winch in the rear.
