You won't have as much impact on power with 10.50 so as to not contributing to the need for a regear, though there will be a small noticeable decrease in performance and gas mileage. Also, you would not need aftermarket wheels or wheel spacers for the stockers. A couple of washers on your steering stops to prevent rubbing would go a long way (though you'll probably still rub mildly at full lock with the washers).

You could pull off a 2" bb and 1.25" body lift and 1" MML for probably 1100-1200 with a set of 4 33x10.50s. 1k of you are patient and shop around for deals.

If you plan on selling, there is not point in throwing money into it. If you need some new tires, buy them. Otherwise invest it, imo.

So let me get this straight. You want to throw away $1000 on a JEEP that you won't hardly have the chance to drive cause you are going to join the service only to sell when you get out?

Don't count your chickens before they hatch. Nominations mean very little toward your overall admissions, especially presidential. Fight for every congressional nom you can get. Definitely wouldn't blow that money on the Jeep, not like you can drive it anyway. Hope to see you here.

Save it, something will break or you'll need it for something later, I'm 100% sure of that.
