First Jeep. Need advice

I have a stock 04 Jeep Wrangler and its been taking a bit of a beating off road. So i finally decided its time to put some money in her. Im on a budget so i dont really want anything flashy, just stuff to improve preformance.

Ill be using her on the highway a lot, going through river sand is my biggest priority. And going through a lot of brush. Once i get the essencials i will worry about making her look badass.

Thank you very much in advance

Your welcome, is there a particular area that you would like advice in? There are about as many mods as there are stars in the sky for a Jeep. A little something more in the way of where you want your Jeep to end up and what your looking spend would allow us to give you some useful advice.

Welcome to the forum, remember to fill out your vehicle profile in your profile though so people can quickly see what you have and dispense advice....

If you're on a budget, you might consider easy bolt on stuff that can be had over Craigslist like under body armor and maybe even some aggressive rims/tires.
