I've decided my tax money is going to be my ENTIRE Jeeping budget this year ... 2011 I spent much more than that on upgrades, wheeling, etc. Likely going to have to pay someone to do the cooling system and u joints.

List:
New Cooling system (sans radiator) - already have parts
Front U joints - already have parts
Front left wheel bearing - already have
Change front/rear diff fluid - already have
Rear DS U Joints
Rear AAL
Spare tire / wheel

I get a barrel of money back from my student credit breaks, and other ludacris tax breaks in Massachusetts for students. Family pays for school, so I get a lot of that back in my name which works out for me well.

This year I am doing this, and then this.

good times.

My WK gets about 5k a year on maintaining the durability, components and I wouldn't even want to calculate the gas. I wouldn't wait for tax time if I really wanted something for my Jeep anyways...but I will wait for those two listed above, because with the right amount of money they are both a ton of fun.

Exactly. give it a couple years, do the math, with how many get "refunds" (hard to get a $3000 refund when you didnt pay 3K into the system) and how much the fed is spending, those checks might not be good. Happened in California, and their economy is just as bad as the feds.

longarms for my rig. fix the oil leak, new brakes, other odds n ends.

new motor for the camaro, headers, and a new battery.

But before any of that, pay house taxes and pay up bills. replace garage door opener.

If I could spend it all, f/r G2S 44's with 5.38's and some 35's.

Most is going in savings because of the economic appoclypse, so realistically, a Rough Country long arm upgrade and might stick back a little toward some 33's in late spring.

Sadly the XJ isnt getting much other than gas out of this return, but I'm getting a new-to-me motorcycle to drive while the jeep is being worked on.

Had plans for front bumper and new tires, but I owe....

Still can't figure out why. Made less and was taxed more than 2010 and I got 1500 last year.

I was going to get my new lift installed, an Possibly a rear locker and bank the rest. But It may go towards the closing cost on a house My wife an I are trying to purchase to get the Heck out of our apartment.
