How about just drive it? Wheel it? and have fun. Those lights without the NEED are just stupid waste of money. Fogs need to be mounted as low as you can. The other type depend on the type. They will have instructions on best height.

This 1000%. Get some aftermarket lights for the front bumper. Much better primary spot than the windshield. Hellas bolt right up.

Put down top, remove doors, fill with fuel and girls and just drive.


It's a start, anyway.



In all seriousness, if you're going right offroad, I think the first step is armoring up underneath. All the cosmetics in the world aren't going to help an engine without oil!!!

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.

Yeah, change all your fluids, if you want lights go with KC Hilites 130w next to your windshield.

Did you change the brake and power steering fluid also, what transmission do you have?

now is the time to buy a hard top, as soon as the winter comes, prices go up on craigslist. i personally prefer it for just driving around/daily driver. anything else go soft.

I live in PA as well. I say go with soft top. Hard-tops are so damn expensive. $600-1000 would get you some slick armor underneath, and some quick discos.

Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.
