Just looking for little things to do that change the appearance a little.
I don't know what you could do for cheap, but for mine I want rock sliders, new bumpers, an oversized tire carrier and, last but NOT least, a winch. That's what I think would look good.

Thanks! It's got 35" tires and it's a spring over axle lift (SOA) around the 6" range. Maybe 5"-6".

Anything else you think mine needs?

Yours looks great.
Only whatever YOU think it needs. It looks good to me.

Anyway, are you sticking w/ the chrome grill?
I have the same grill on mine and am thinking about toning it down by either painting it black or the color of the Jeep.
I will probably leave it chrome. We'll see what happens if I get a bug up my arse someday though. As far as the color, it depends on the daylight it seems. I would say more on the blue side though.

eric411420 THANK YOU FOR THE CLICK FREE!!!!!

Thanks for the complements too! I was initially leery of it because it is so clean. Carfax came back great, guaranteed and there was a good history of maintenance so that was reassuring but I still felt that there was a catch. I had my step-father, who is a body mechanic, look at it to see if there was anything he noticed and he was surprised at how clean it is too. He said it looked great as well. That's when I was spending about 25 hours a day lurking on this forum educating myself and trying to find the "catch". I thought for sure there was something that I didn't and that I was going to inherit a nightmare. Not the case. It's a solid as it looks now. I replace outer wheel joints, a tire, did a tune up, K&N, all the fluids and she's GTG!

Thanks again for the complements!

Eric
