Should I add anything to my YJ?

I just bought a 1995 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. It has a 2" lift and 32" BFG's (The front two are pretty bald and need to be replaced soon). I was wondering once I get the tires replaced if there were any more upgrade I should do? I have a little under $1000 left in my budget.
Thanks!

What do you want your YJ to do??? If it can do all that you currently want it to do take a close look at the condition.

Priorities are 1. Safety and reliability 2. Performance and 3. Bling

There are a thousand ways to mod a YJ and you can quickly spend the money on a ton of things that do not contribute to your goals.

So make a plan, prioritize the plan and then shop. Just make sure what you do adds value too how you want to use your YJ.

Well since your getting new tires, maybe opt for a little bigger, them change what's necessary to make them fit(lift or fenders).

As jokerchief462 mentioned, first you need to know what you want to do with your Jeep (improve reliability, performance, function, utility, cosmetics) if you want to get the most from your dollar. Jeeps are money pits enough without frittering away hard earned money on stuff that won't meet your goals for how you want to mod your Jeep. If in doubt, I'd save that cash until you are sure you know what you need to do to get your Jeep to be what you want it to be.

Well since members with alot more posts have already looked past it i wouldn't worry to much but if your front 2 tires are significantly worse then your rears then that might be a problem in need of addressing.

If you are going to do some off roading - I'd suggest 250 bucks for a DIY Aussie Locker in front axle. Best off road performance bang for buck hands down in my opinion.

Save rest of your money for things you're likely to discover need repair or replacement.

1994 YJ Wrangler, 4.0, AX15, NP231, 35x12.50x15 BFG KM2s, 4" RC lift, 1" lift Boom Shackles, 1" BL, 4.10 gears, 8.8 LSD in rear and D30 Aussie Locker in front, on-board air conversion, Ramsey RE8000 winch.
