Get a new steering stabilizer.

Armor is good.

didn't even get my BB in the mail yet, and I want to do a F to R swap for 3.5". guess it'll have to wait till next year.

next mod depends on what you use your jeep for. if you offroad a lot, get some rocker protection from kevin, or maybe a front locker. if you only offroad a little maybe get a K&N FIPK for better gas mileage...

I did mine then went with the stabilizer. It helped out a lot. I did have to shave a little of the front facia on my 97 so that there would be absolutely no rubbing.

Yea, be careful listening to this guy, He'll have ya spending you next 5 paychecks

I've done most of this in the last couple months:

BB, 31's, OME SS, Ordered Skids for the TC and Front suspension, new rotors & calipers...did all the engine performance first years ago. And still trying to figure out how I can go higher and what a new arb bumper w/ winch could fit into my budget, and then how I can afford sliders and a wilderness rack...help me please,
I think need to go to an Jeepsaholic's anonymous meeting or something...I think I'm an addict

I had to trim a little plastic on the front fascia that wraps inside the wheel wells due to some minor rubbing. I run 31x10.50's wild country muds on Gambler Rims off a 98 Sahara.

Me too, in this pic I had just trimmed the inner fender well, but I've since trimmed along the bottom where the facia is.

i have a 95 with a 2" budget boost with 31x10.5 bfg mudterrains and don't have any rubbing. A good next mod would be shocks because the stock ones are too short to get full suspension travel with the BB

Some disconnects will also help you get more from the articulation side of the suspension.
