Lightbulb Under $100 MODS/UPGRADES

Hello Everyone,
I am looking to see what everyone has done to upgrade or modify their WJ for less than $100. I want to upgrade my WJ but am limited to a tight budget and was curious what people are doing to theirs.

HIR headlight bulbs? Well under $100. Keep in mind, HIR bulbs, not HID.
