Broke all 4 compression rings on my lower control arms yesterday and dropped it off this morning to get some Johnny joints installed.

Initial list on a "new" old Wrangler.

Just recently purchased a 99 TJ that will eventually be my daughter's (she has always wanted a Wrangler since she was little).

Had keys made at Jeep dealership (only had one key)

Installed door nuts, may get some locking ones if I find some full doors for it.

Took dash apart and cleaned it really well.

Completed rewired the radio (who ever did the job before should never, ever touch vehicle radios again).

Replaced fuses blown by faulty radio wiring.

Removed wire tied loom of wires going back to sound bar, reran the wires and tucked them away so not seen now.

Ran wires for a future subwoofer install.

Wired the sound bar correctly with speaker wires and power feeds for interior lights. Soft top vehicle so there was not an existing pigtail that I could find.

Replaced bulbs: side marker and courtesy light under dash.

Greased the seat brackets.

Replaced wiper blades.

Peeled dealer sticker from back.

Used Plastix on the windows, they look like new! That stuff rocks.

Installed a steering wheel cover. Nothing tacky, black with some red stitching to match the Jeep.

Painted Rugged Ridge induction scoop black and reinstalled.

Ordered a new fender flare kit, existing were too far gone to paint IMO.

Purchased and installed red led interior lights in the footwell. Jeep is Flame Red so I though what the heck.

Checked oil, will change soon.

Checked air filter, looked clean.

Checked coolant.

Filled windshield wash fluid.

Washed it, put the top down, went for cruise and got it a little muddy down by the Flint river

See no one would actually buy mine because I'd price it too high, I grew up with this Jeep. The only way I'm getting rid of it is if someone hits me and totals it.

Thanks, will look in to it. I have some tough decisions to make there...or some big money to get it done how it needs to end up

Can you afford the car? Have I provided you all the information you need on the car? Do you like the car? Then buy the car.

Fixed the driver's seat not-sliding problem. In my case it was both wires under the seat that were getting caught in the sliders...

I should have done before and after shots but I did not. :

The windows were so cloudy it was hard to see out of it and was worried I would need to get her a new top. I saw someone on the forums suggest the Plastix, it is easy to work with and the results have made the windows look like new. I recommend taping off your canvas so that you do not get any of the product on it.

I use PlastX. It works pretty good. Theres a good bit of scratches and scuffs in my windows that no product can fix but the PlastX pulls a ton of infused dirt out and polishes them nice.

Put the snow tires on and in the process found I need brakes all around, right side u-joint and left side tie rod end. Also found the front pinion seal and rear main seal are both slightly leaking.

Sometimes I hate working on my own vehicles.

I still wouldn't get rid of it. I am just starting to get it where I want it.

Talked with a local fab guy last week and he said we could make me some tube fenders. Need to finalize my drawings and get him to order some materials.
Planning on making this design with a 4.5"flare.

...and I'd probably call it done.
Not trying to pick on you really, but do you really need that stuff? Have you wheeled where you have struggled bad enough to need 35s? Have you ever hit your belly? Ever hit your rockers or been close to hitting them?
Re gear, throw a front locker on, and maybe buy some chromo shafts for the rear only. Wheel it like that and have fun with it. I understand the want to buy all those upgrades, im on the same boat, I have plans to do so. What I have learned is that for me its a project, I plan on keeping my jeep for the next few years and will build it in stages, I have a build plan for my current 33s that I am currently working on, plan for my future 35s, plan for my future 37s, and havent decided if I would ever want 40s+.
Everyone has different build plans for different needs, sounds to me like you just want to fix up the jeep quick and add thousands to just DD. But if I were you I would slowly upgrade things on your jeep and wheel it so you actually know what you need.
If you dont plan on wheeling it then in my opinion you definitely dont need the upgrades you listed.
