What should i do next?
I'm 16 and on a budget what should I do to my jeep next? It's white on black 2.5 skyjacker lift 30 inch Toyo tires flow master exhaust blue fog lights (trail lights) 2 12" subs k&n cold air intake herculined stock bumpers flairs and about 12 inches of the bottom of the body/doors 2" trailer package a fyew stickers anything in mind? Thanks Josh
Well it depends on what you mean by a budget how small of a budget lol. well im working witha stock jeep myself and a guy sugested to me a small lift and lockers and armor... so i would haveto say u got a lift go for a front locker? I dont really know whats what or anything but he sugested an aussie front locker there pretty cheap i checked them out
- pics or it didn't happen
- read all the stickies should be next to learn yourself your XJ
- sway bar disconnects if you want to wheel - don't get cheap ones though - they will rattle
- skid plates if you want to wheel - stock ones will work well to start - CL, ebay, JF classifieds used and cheap
- recovery points - receiver shackle for the rear 30 bucks , front needs substantial tow hook brackets with hooks used for 50, new for 100ish - you can't just bolt on TJ hooks to the unibody frame
- recovery strap - to attach WHEN you or your buddy (never wheel alone) get's stuck 30-40 bucks
- Save some money for the parts you will break doing foolish stuff with the above parts already attached.
- You don't need a winch right away - but they are good to have
- You don't need a locker right away - but they will increase your abilities once you learn to wheel without one.
- Have you already changed all your fluids? I mean all of them - even the power steering fluid.

#1 - Recovery points from and rear. Sounds like you have a hitch so grab some hooks/brackets for the front.
#2 - Quick disconnects, I like Rubicon Express' but JKS also make good ones.
#3 - Full size spare.
#4 - Assuming you don't already have....tow strap, I like 30,000 lbs or up. Add to this same list, basic trail tools, may be a high lift if you think you'll use it.
#4.5 - Go actually wheel your rig as much as you can, no parts take the place of knowing how to drive your rig.
#5 - Rock sliders, JCR Offroad's are my fav's for the price.
#6 - Bumpers, front and rear. Again I like JCR, but there are plenty of good options here.
#7 - You can blow $1,000 on 1 - 6 assuming this takes you the next year to complete buy the time you finish that you are going to decide you need more lift and larger tires. So come back and ask again in a year. Good luck.
