Also what is the best cost worthy 35" spare holder. I was thinking of the getting the besttop one but its a little pricey so i thought to ask you guys what your first choice for a spare holder would be?

finally got some meats on her. for tire carrier personally i have a custom made one, depending on how far you are from reading, theres a custom shop there i always use, really nice guy, great products and thicker material which i like. if i were to go after market, it would have to be ORE which is really pricey, teraflex, genright, or or-fab. also really like the design on the rancho one, and at 500 bucks from quadratec not a bad buy.

My dad plows with it(boss plow) and for plowing he decided he wanted a little beefy'er suspension and a leveling kit to get rid of the plow. He put a 2.5 skyjacker leveling kit on it and put on new skyjacker shocks to support the plow. Now that I have it, I just got a Gibson dual metalisha exhuast(not on yet) from Quadratec for a early gift and have procomp 7031 rims and Pro Comp Xtreme All Terrain 35's coming next week that i payed for myself. I love my jeep and already have a Airaid intake, Quadratec Mats(total must have), and LED truck lites on it. I have been slowly trying to mod it so it looks badass but still performs like a daily driver. I am only 17 so any input or advice would be awesome.
Was it totally awesome?

x2. The single mod that I'm still most excited about. You can't go wrong with the OR-FAB Swing Away.

New tires on!!!!! So pumped! Had to buy new lugs though, i bought spline lugs from pepboys for 30 bucks for 20. My old lugs would only work with a thin wall driver. And the lock nut would not have fit. I really like them.

looks good, never use lock nuts they usually just end up braking.

I was using the ones that came with my jeep. They were pretty solid.

Put on my gibson dual exhaust! Sounds bad***. I really like it, the only problem was getting the passengerside rubber thing off. So my dad and i just cut the exhaust bracket off. Didnt get any pictures. Will get some tomorrow. Any how, there was a little snow!

Put on my gibson dual exhaust! I really like the sound, a little loud but i like it. We had a little problem with taking off the original exhaust. We got the driver side rudder grommet off but the passenger was a pain in the a** so we cut the bracket off and the exhaust was pretty stuck together. But it was pretty easy. Will post pictures tomorrow. In the mean while we got alittle bit of snow!
