what should i do next?!?

i haven done anything to my jeep in a while and want to do something to it, i am getting a safari roof rack soon but i want to do something else, here are my mods now:

33in durtracs, 3inch bds sl, 1.25bl, mml, 4.56s, arb locker in the rear, front arb bull bar w/ warn 8000, rear src bumper + tire swing, thats basically the big stuff (stock control arms)

i want to go higher i think, i was thinking of doing 2in coil spacers but then i have to get brake lines, control arms, sye/cv etc, and i dont think ill have the money soon enough to do it all at once, i could go 35s but im not sure how much it will cost for the tires, brakes, steering etc. but i need to do something different soon because im like that, i need to constanly upgrade. does anyone have some ideas for my next step? or if you can, tell me rough prices for what it will cost (doing it the right way, not half assing it) to either do 2in coil spacers or go 35s? thanks guys, i appreciate the help

jeeps do empty every pocket ! I'd say 35's if you could fit them with your 4 inch total lift. It will probly be hard to get rid those dura tracs though they are nice.

I'd do a tummy tuck with some nice rokmen or currie control arms, some adjustable rear uppers and then replace the lowers... a rokmen skid or whatever and a CV shaft... I'm dying to get my t-case back up.

You can always replace the springs later. And imo height isn't quite as important as other stuff. I have a roof rack also, but would probably take it off if I ever went to 35s.

EDIT: oh, sorry, just saw the part about the money for CV etc. It's not that much for the advantages of a tummy tuck. It's a lot less hassle and money than trying to go 35s. Plus, a good tummy tuck is an investment that you'll want eventually anyway, and you'll need the control arms too. Just do it all piecemeal to work upto 35s... focus on control arms and work your way to the axles.

There's always armor...

Let's talk about your swaybars and tire pressure, then.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.
