You may regret going with Zone, I haven't heard good things about them long-term.

I wouldn't say anything wrong yet... depending on how you use it, though, I might recommend adj. rear trackbar, extended brake lines (or brake line mount relocation), and (adj.) sway bar links (can move the rears to the front, and replace the rears, but I like my adjustables to make it nearly perferct!). None of these are absolutely necessary, I suppose (brake link mount relocation is cheap!), but definitely worth mentioning.

(I realize people are on a budget, but these might be things to consider as future upgrades.)

I've heard 50/50, some people love them and some people hate them... at least he's lifting it (not saying that you lowered yours, just saying period...)

You didn't see my East LA JK build thread? It's where I chopped and dropped my Rubicon and put 22" chrome spinners on her... ok I just threw up in my mouth a little just thinking about that.

Wow...that just gave me a good idea! I'll chop it and put spinners on it and drive through Detroit! If the jeep can make it through there it can make it anywhere! LOL

It would only be wrong if you think that your Jeep will be finished after completing that list.
Your list is a good start as long as you prepare yourself mentally for a new list as soon as this one is complete. Maybe even sooner!
Good luck and have fun!

I have exactly the same setup (other than MT tires instead of Nitto's)...and after 33,000 miles, I wouldn't change a thing.
