WJ budget build

Picked up a 99 WJ for a little under $3k and decided it'd be a fun Jeep to build. I'm on a budget because the military pays horribly. I'm willing to put money in it but it'll be a slow process. I'll update as I go and any help or tips would be great.

Alright so I got the Jeep almost a month ago and just decided to make a build thread. I tried uncovering the KC lights when I bought it and realized there was only 1 there which was one of the factors of me talking the guy down from$7k to $2900. I know that's one of the primary things I want to fix asap. Also the tires are pretty bald.

First trip with the Jeep I drove from Maryland to Utah on my way to California with everything I owned stuffed on or in it. The tires made it all the way to Utah! Definitely sketchy the whole way here.

Got my fenders rolled and got the Jeep back on Friday. My Jeep now looks like it skipped leg day one too many times.

Couldn't stand the look of the tires on it being small and bald so I took a trip to get some new ones with the last bit of the budget I had left. 35's on a 4" lift. Not too bad.

Hopefully putting a long arm kit on it soon so I can cheat it back a bit
