2001 xj Daily driver Low budget build around $3000

I started with a completely stock blue 2001 xj it all started when i noticed a broken rear leaf spring HAHA. I started by striping moldings pinstripe decals fenders and bumpers. I went with a 4.5" Rough Country X-SERIES SUSPENSION LIFT and heavy duty tie rod total was $980 bought new factory shakles for $40. I installed this lift last weekend with one of my good friends. I picked up a set of stock 2015 wrangler wheels with 13000 miles 17" moabs with tires off craigslist all 5 for $275. had to buy adapters picked them up off eBay for $80. i had rust on my quarters so went with a cut and fold. i ordered a set of napier flat fenders for $366 and installed this week. i removed carpet to bedlinen floor and need to fix floor in a few spots the worst is the driver side. my driver rocker is rotted i am going to replace both sides with 2x6. i am going to get a set of bumpers from affordable offroad in two weeks. I am planing on monatalinering the exterior med grey with black bumpers flares and roof rack. I will upgrade tire size when i wear these out and black out wheels.i will be around 3000 for a much needed facelift on my daily driver jeep. Let me know what you think. I will update as i get further with my build.
