Jeep Building

I have a 2001 red WJ. I got like $800 and want to start a build. Honestly just about looks right now..until I can afford a better offroad vehicle. Suggestions? Parents are paying for all terrain tires. Let me know what you think.

how bout a tune up? nothing like more power and better gas mileage.

or how bout a good wash and wax.

Clean up the wheels.

heck at this point you have 750$ left so buy a lift kit.


what do you mean a better offroad vehicle? blasphemy. I've been pulling people out of the snow left and right.

if parents are paying for tires id try and get a lift and put it on before so you can get them to buy bigger tires

With only a 800 dollar budget i would just get a budget boost (2in. or so) lift for now and a little bigger tire size and maybe get a front brush guard to give it a little more aggressive look and a good set of driving lights if you dont have factory driving lights
