You can trim your fender flares.

Best cheap mod I like are the round tail lights that are flush with the body. I paid 20 bucks for both of mine.

Foot pegs are cheap and easy to make if you ride without your doors.

There is a really good thread in the TJ forum its a sticky its called what have you made for your TJ

I didnt see what year you have, but you could do the Blazer heater upgrade. I did it last weekend and it is AMAZING!! Nutter bypass, and emissions removal. I removed all my unnecessary vacuum lines and it runs GREAT. Once again, not sure about the year but search this forum for any of the aforementioned mods and youll get a lot of posts. Good luck!

On 2.5l liter engines you can visit the local junk yard and do a 4.0l throttle body convertion swap should run about 30 bucks or so just make sure the cherokee or wrangler you pull it out of is the same year or newer for emissions

$15 mod!

A cool mod you can do is Rhino Line or Bedline your grille. I just did that to mine with Rustoleum Truck Bedliner spray for $7 and also bought a sheet of diamond mesh lath from home depot for $8 that I attached a section of it to the inside of the grille to use as a rock guard for protection of my radiator. I chose to spray paint the lath black so that is would not be noticeable and the grille looks awesome. As long as you follow the instructions on the can and just apply like 4 light coats, you will be good.
