Hey guys. My name is Garrett and i have had my jeep for 4 years. I bought it stock and have put these upgrades on it over time using christmas money and my job to scrape together any extra money i could get ahold of. I will attempt to show a quick history of my jeep with the little pictures i have, then i will show the total upgrades.

After 2" spacer lift and 31" KM tires


After 4" Lift with old Tires

Shocks: Rancho 9000xl front, Procomp Es3000 rear, ES2000 Steering Stabilizer
Tires: 33X12.5X15 BFG KM2's on 15X8 AR767 Rims
Bumpers: Stock, Front has brush guard attached
Side Protection:Smittybilt SRC rocker guards

Thats y people should sponsor me hahaha

What i really want right now is rear rancho 9000xl to match the front and a matching spare tire. Also, i want a SYE to bring the transfer case back up, but that will be awhile because its expensive

Alright guys i just sold the subwoofer i had in it off craigslist for $225, so now i have about $260 to spend on the jeep. What should i get next?

Can i have some advice on good shocks for the rear of the jeep that are decently priced and made for a 4" lift? I dont really want to spend all of the money i just got on Rancho 9000xl just to match the front. Im thinking something cheaper to get away from these ES3000's

Then depending on what i have left i might get a front bumper or some skid plates
