02 Sahara Build, Advice

On a college budget (Alcohol, books, and parking tickets taken into account) I have come across some funds to put towards some minor mods. Now I just got an AMAZING deal on JK Rubicon Wheels and Tires(Almost Brand New), and after the Spidertrax adapters, came out the door with spending around 600.

Now I have the options as listed above:

-My Speakers are lacking, Alpine iDA-X100 is outperforming the factory speakers..

-My 255/75R17s are almost 32" tall, and my 31x10.5 didnt require a lift, but after the adapters are put on I might still need one..

-I removed and sold my factory Polyurethane Sahara rocker panels, but i didnt take the steel panel off that is billet'd(sp?) into the body panels because it would leave holes, so I need some Rocker Panels to clean it up..

-Due to my terrible Michelin LTXs (dont buy), I hydroplaned into a parked Chevy S-10 and lost a fog light, dented a fender flare, and lost a corner signal marker. I have no driving/fog lights, and we all know how terrible the factory Wagners are..

Give me some input I need to do something constructive with this before I spend it on Alcohol, or girls. (Evil syphoning women.)

Get busy living, or get busy dying

BB and some Hella driving/fog lights ($50).Get some rubi rockers or ebay/craigslist cheaper rockers.Crappy small stock speakers don't sound that good when upgraded.I added a box behind the rear seat that jams with two 8" woofers and tweeter/midranges.10's were just too much bass for my NIN CD's.

I'd say go with the 3.25" RC lift and find a good set of used 33's on Craigslist; preferably something with some good tread so you do go sliding into other parked vehicles
'07 Rescue Green JK - 3.5" Rough Country with 35" Nitto Terra Grapplers on 18" Fuel Hostage wheels...More to come
