well what do you want to do with your jeep? where do you want it to end up? "alot of different things" doesn't give us a whole lot to go on.

no no no.

get a set of spacers for 30 bucks. build a bastard pack. buy a nicer set of tires off of craigslist. used coils. building on a budget means HOUNDING craigslist for deals. and make sure they are deals. just cause you go looking at something, doesn't mean you have to buy it.

my advice. search. many many many people have built their xj on a budget. save your money for what you really want. look at build threads. but really, search. i'll get you started

search:
bastard pack
budget boost
budget build


anyways, here is my jeep. she is lifted 2" and is riding on 30" tires. any questions feel free to ask
