What can be done for less as possible

Wanna start making the jeep look sick, but dont have the money to do all i want right now. Where can i start to get on my way? I already figured cutting the bumpers and adding a roof rack. Maybe smoking tailights and headlights? And i thought about moving the antennae to the side below the taillight. Let me know what you think...open to all suggestions!!

go drive through a big mud puddle.

93 red ZJ 190k 4.0. Spent more money than I should have ...

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

Start slow and use your budget. Focus on something you want to do first and just simply collect some money up as you are able and then find that particular thing and get it as cheaply as possible. You will find that getting in a hurry will lead to buying inferior parts that you will not be happy with.

I am on my third or fourth year of running my 1996 ZJ Laredo, and just this past winter I finally got the lift springs under it. I actually purchased the lift kit used, which included front and rear Rubicon Express coil springs and two Rubicon Express adjustable track bars off of a forum member. I stored this kit for nearly two years before I was able to get it installed due to lack of other parts.

I traded some stuff for some good used Rubicon Express twin tube shocks for my lift height. Held those for almost two years before I put them on while waiting to lift it.

Then I got two upper front control arms. Then I got two lower front control arms. I then installed that set. I still have factory rear arms.

I then purchased an IRO adjustable heavy duty track bar for the front. That is now installed.

I got JKS upper shock stem eliminators and lower bar pin eliminators. I just installed those last week. Had them for months.

Last December I purchased a set of Maxxis Big Horn Radials 265/75/R16.

Coming together but slowly.

You really should do your lift and tires first. Everything else you buy might be based off the amount of lift you go with.

Make a plan:
- Decide what tire size you want to run

- Plan how much lift you need for the tire size you plan to run. Then start collecting the parts for your lift. Try to get good used stuff.

- Don't cut anything until you find out what you need to cut
