Hey guys, I've been on jf for about a year now and (unfortunately) gone through two jeeps since. Long story short my current jeep is an 02 TJ which I love to death. It is my daily driver right now and I am pretty much a broke college kid. Being bone stock there are a million and one things I want to do to it. I get even get excited when it comes time to do regular maintenance...haha.
Anyways, the point of this thread is that eventually (and I'm talking over the period of a few years as I work my way through school) I would love to have an awesome rig with a 4.5 LA suspension, tummy tuck, 33-35" tires, winch, aux lighting, and the list goes on. My question is what would be the best starting point? I know things like an sye & driveshaft will be necessary but am not sure what other upgrades would be required for my dream set-up. I am wanting to start with the basic things and basically "prep" my rig for the lift and bigger tires over time so I can spread the cost out instead of dropping $5000 at once.
Also, can anyone give me some info for some 4x4 clubs in the middle-georgia area to get some wheeling in...I go to school in milledgeville and work in greensboro and spend quite a bit of time in augusta (where the g/f lives) so anything around those areas would be awesome.
