So ive decided to take a different route with my jeep entirely. I do not really want to lift it a **** done because it is a daily driver. I think I want to upgrade to 33s and stay there (KM2s?). I dont want all that much lift (4inch max). Im looking into upgrading to Bedrug or Bedtred interior flooring. Any thoughts? Also want to do some minor exterior lighting and possibly LED tail lights. Maybe some new bumpers (not anything overly flashy but something to look good and be tough). I was also considering painting my dash, doors, and center console black. Whats the best way to go about doing this? Right now I'm going back and forth on whether or not to buy the heavy duty rugged ridge floor mats. Can anybody recommend these?

Overall goal is a clean, reliable, good looking rig that I can have some fun in!

So it's been awhile since your first post and I've seen mainly just maintenance/appearance stuff done so far. Anything besides the LED's in the works? Looks clean btw...very nice.

I'm in high school so funds are a little tight! I've got about a grand put aside for some 33 inch MTRs. After this summer I will be purchasing MTRs, 4 inch lift (I think), and I'm also looking for an 8.8 with 4.10 gearing to swap in. I would regear the front 30 to 4.10s as well. The main reason for the 8.8 choice is it's very cheap, gearing, much stronger, and disc brakes. SYE is a possibility as well.

Anyone have any thoughts on 3.73 vs 4.10 for 33s? Found an axle with 3.73 but I'm not sure if I should hold for 4.10?
