The first thing you should buy is a "Thank You" card.


You mentioned a future suspension upgrade in your specs. This might be a great opportunity to do that or part of that depending on what you end goals are.

X2. The best thing you can do. I like buying gold and silver every chance I get.

I plan on selling my current tires so in the end I will have about $1450 at my disposal.

Open a savings account if you don't already have one.

Since investing is not in your plans, a new rear end would be a good start.

Hold onto it, throw it in the bank for now. Give yourself a timeline, maybe 1 to 2 months to think about what you want to do with it, save or spend. Any Jeep parts vendor will be just as willing to take your order in August. Once it's gone, it's gone.

I'm on to an appointment to West Point, and if that doesn't go through, a 4 year ROTC scholarship. Plus I have GI bill and a healthy 529 my patents saved.

In short, college saving is not an issue for me.
