You just bought a JEEP, no such thing as not breaking the bank. All you will want to do is spend money on Crap for it!!!LOL. Congrats on your jeep

Xenon flat fender flares. they aren't that expensive and make your jeep look mean as hell all while keeping mud off 2/3 of your jeep.

congrats on the jeep, I just bouhgt my first about two weeks ago and already need to work on it. but.... that is why i bought it, it needs some love and i love my jeep. some time this next year or two i wil be undergoing a semi-restoration mainly for the xterior. I imagine it will cost me somewhere in the ballpark of $4-5K, in just upgrades and mods.:cheers2:

i have similar LEDS on mine. Love em!

Also $350 isn't that bad considering costs of decent: bumper (front and rear), rockers, winch, top, lift, wheels, tires, ect................
And flat fenders IMO just set off the jeep with a whole different look

money money money
 
sorry to break it to you, jeep is nothing but a money pit! but a good one :laugh:.
for instance i bought mine 4 years ago for $900. since then i have spent 40 grand in it..:brickwall.. yes thats right 40 grand... "hello, my name is patrick and i have a problem!".. but ofcourse i rebuilt the entire thing and have put my whole bank into it.

but dont fret! there are plenty of cheap ways to go about getting a few cool things in your jeep. One thing of which i am sure you already know, anything dealing with the engine or anything that deals with the way it drive, turns, runs etc... do not do cheap, just remember if its cheaps then its not for keeps. if something is getting ready to go or somthing is not working right, either fix it properly or buy the new part! last thing you want is to get out on the trail and then it break on you (not like that is not going to happen anyways) but you want to keep your chances good.

first thing is first. oil change and new filters... go over the engine and make sure its running right and then go get it dirty! after that you can get an idea about where you want to go with your jeep in the future!:cheers2:

hey spencerp- if you wanna sell flat fender flares for UNDER $100 they your at the right place if not dont give b.s info

there is a thread in the picture forum about a "Junkyard Roof rack" where a guy modified a ford explorer roof rack for his jeep. I dont think it was to much money and it looks great.

Here's a 3rd (or in my case 4th) brake light that is pretty cheap and easy for you. It's less than $20, and that's even if you get an LED light. Even less if you get the non-LED version.
