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.

I'm not one of those folk that shout about using the search button all the time but there must a dozen threads with the same title!

Budget boost lift kit $90.00 on jgcparts.com

Build your own cold air intake for around $60.00

Debadge your jeep, $7.00 for goo gone $10.00 for fishing line

Better to be mute than dispute with the ignorant.

Perversion or self exploration isn't the point in this case.In fact there will be no case, no trial by a jury of our peers just fear in the hearts of those we choose. Doing this for the knowledge of our victory, that is how we are different.
