Cheap mods for my first jeep

Just bought my first Car/Jeep it's a 96 Cherokee Sport for $1200. Is there any cheaper mods that a 16yr old can do, I have some experience with XJ's.

Things I have done:

- I painted the stock rims black because they had corrosion on them.
- New Radio/ Speakers.
- Started welding up a roof rack.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Change out interior lights for led lights they are brighter and use less power could also do gauge lights to. Clean the motor till it sparkles again. That's all I can think of at this very moment

Repaint your fender flares with krylon fusion satin paint
