What should I blow $1200 on next?? HELP!!

Okay. I have an extra $1200ish to spend on my WJ. What should I do next? I am leaning towards some armor for it, but I don’t really do much off road stuff. I would love to learn, and do it more often, but I don’t know anyone here in WA that is willing to teach me.


Here’s a list of my current WJ specs and mod’s;
2002 Loredo 4.7L, Selac-Trac 4wd, Tow Package, with “16 X 7 Lux Aluminum” Factory rims.

OME 2” Medium Duty lift kit, with OME shocks and springs. (Would like to add another 1”… Maybe spacers?) --- Gibson Exhaust from the headers back – K&N Cold air intake --- 32” Goodyear Wranglers for daily driving, and 32” “Super Swampers” for playing --- Full A/V Setup; Everything replaced --- ARB Bumper on the way (I don’t like how far it sticks out though) --- Upgraded headlights --- Blacked out grill --- Addco Front and rear sway bars ---


What do you think? Any fun idea’s? I can’t think of the best things to do next….

I'll just start off by saying you learn by doing. Thats how I did alot of stuff on my Jeep.

If you're thinking about armor, sliders are a fairly cheap and easy way to get some protection. By far one of the BEST mods I've put on my Jeep.

Traction devices (Lockers/Limited Slips).

Maybe a winch for your ARB.

Get a shackle mount that goes into your reciever hitch for a good recovery point.

Mount up some lights somewhere.

Install a CB setup.

SAVE it for a long arm kit in the future!

Maybe someone will chime in with more stuff. That will give you a good start. Good Luck!

Hey thanks! I forgot to say the winch... That's someting else I ordered it's a "WARN 9000." As far as the lockers go; I had thought about it, but I have the Dana 44a, so I can only get one kind. I can't remember what one though. And I have been using this as my DD lately, so Maybe in the future...

It's sad that this WJ gets better mileage than my 2 Year old Mercedes...

I don't know Jason, maybe pay some child support with that $1,200 you have extra. You know you barely make the current months payments, and you have almost $9,000 owed in back support.

But enjoy your Jeep.

Ho-ly Crap. You just got owned.

I'm with her though, child support has priority.
