So ive been thinking of what I want to do to the jeep next, right now im leaning towards the SPOD system, and a new battery and alternator maybe. Ive got alot of things hooked up right now and my under the hood arrangement is an embarrassment. Ive got..

-50" bar
-rigid floods
-rigid spots
-arb compressor
-sub and amp

Its alot, and Im thinking I would have a professional install it just cause im clearly no good with wiring (hence why im a carpenter and not an electrician)

Another thing Im thinking of is a guy is selling some raceline beadlocks for $1000 for the set of 5, in prep of moving up to 37's.. Its not as much of a priority but its on the list.

Also thinking of driveshafts, cause I will probably move up to 3.5"

Id like it all, but im not made of money lol

That's what I was thinking.. They are the wheel I would never need to mess with ever again, and I can start the path for 37s..

Its an organized fuse relay box for accessories. Essential in my opinion!

All nice wheels.. I just go with what craigslist is offering first before id pay that kind of money for a wheel. I dont necessarily need a beadlock, but since its a real good deal I might just have to take him up. Id still have to dish out for the 37s lol

Im still wanting to get a better battery, and the spod. It would be nice to get it since wheeling season is here now and ill be running the compressor and winch. Decisions decisions..

It'd be nice not having a deadline, that way you can take advantage of the real deals and not just what's available at that moment

Deadlines are stressful, I go with the flow haha. Most of my jeep is craiglist anyways. I bought the 10A front and rear bumpers w/ sliders, traded off the front bumper for the arb stubby, sold the rear, and swapped out my rubicon rails with the smittybilt rails (got off craigslist), and then traded my rc car for the winch. Then the sub and amp was off craigslist.. I love craigslist haha.

Well the girlfriend called today saying that we need a bike rack, shes got 4 dogs that like walks and summer time is coming up so I need a use to carry my bikes around! Went with a yakima setup

Guess I need to wait on the other **** now
