~$500 what should I get for my jeep?

I took care of my sisters place and animals for three weeks and my birthday is coming up and her and her BF were thinking of getting me an Iphone. I think they are cool and i could use a new phone however I could really use that money towards my jeep (assuming they are willing to) I was thinking:

1. Currie HD steering
2. Cage work (A-pillar, dashbars. . .)
3. TnT Phantom Fenders ( I picked up a pair for free of off a rolled jeep but one was un usable and TnT wouldnt get back to me about buying just one side)
4. Rear 3" tube fenders from TnT to go with my new TnT corner guards
5. 27 spline chromo inner/outer shafts for my D30 (its more than 500 but i dont mind putting money towards it)
6. Used 33" BFG A/Ts ( my jeep is geared for them despite im running 35s. id like to have a second set of A/Ts for the street so i dont wear down my 35s)
7. Iphone

any other ideas? i was also thinking SYE/CV but id like to wait till savvy comes out with a tummy tuck and go from there

Don't get an Iphone, get the new Nexus One.

I'd say either #2, or save a little more for Metal Cloak Overline fenders

I'd do inners and outers. Reassurance is always nice on a trail

I voted #2, but if you can get TnT to sell you one fender and still have enough for the rear tubes then go for that.

Or you could do your good deed for the year and donate that money to my new clutch. You'll feel a whole lot better about yourself if you do.

Safety fast, Bill

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.- Helen Keller
