New Pics, New Tires and New Plans

Took some new photos today after a quick wash and after mounting the Grabbers. New plan for the Jeep is:

Cooling System Upgrade (Looking for suggestions on radiator, water pump and thermostat)
Tow Hooks for the front
Trailer Hitch for the rear (or JCR rear bumper)
Spartan Locker for the front
Window regulator.....
Finish removing the side trim
Paint the bumper ends black (they are all faded)
Swaybar Bushings
Install my trackbar bushings I just got and my MOOG Super Trail Boss Steering Stabilizer

Your going to love those tires!! They get me through pretty much everything. Why are you looking to lock the front axle before a lift or anything?Jw

Thanks guys, I am going with the locker because I got a great deal on it and I'm not sure what direction I want to go with the Jeep. Plus I just bought those tires which would look small even with the OME 2.5" lift I want, I will do the lift but just not right away. I want to do trailer hitch, recovery points for the front, cooling system, etc before lift and bigger tires. I also want new wheels when I get tires and that = $$$ all at once.

I suggest that you focuse on the recovery points. Now I cant tell what size tires you put on but I have the 30" At2s on a 3.5" lift and they dont look to bad. It allows for some great tuck.

I agree and am planning on getting this:

And a draw-tite or curt tow hitch for the rear.

Thanks for the comments!

SOunds like a good plan because a locker will potentially get you more stuck and really require some good tow points. Best of luck to you

Just ordered a Curt tow hitch and tail light wiring kit, gonna order the front hooks as well. I really want JCR bumpers but can't justify spending $1,000 on bumpers when the car needs a new cooling system and other stuff first.

I think you'll be very pleased with that spartan locker up front, i rolled without one for a long time and when i did put it in up front it was a different machine.
