DJ's TJ/LJ Build

Hey everyone , i'm not really new to the forum, but I am new to posting. I decided it would be smart to make a build thread for my Auto '06 Unlimited. It has 30,000 miles on it and is pretty much all stock right now. I have big plans for it, but for now it's just a matter of making these plans a reality. I'm a 17 year old high school student from Fairfax, VA. I've taken a lot of inspiration from many LJs on this forum and from other places as well. This will be my DD for the most part, but I want to make it a beast on the trails too
Above all things, I do what I like to MY Jeep. I appreciate opinions, and value constructive criticism, but hate is unwanted and can be taken elsewhere. Let's get started!

Another thing I did is paint my bezels (satin) black. I know a lot of you guys are tired of hearing about bezel painting, but I like the look much better.
It was basically the same process I used for the frame...I roughed them up with some sand paper, primed them, wet sanded, did 2 final coats with the satin black.

If you noticed, I also removed the side steps. I like this look much more as well and it works for now due to it being stock height still

Overall Checklist:
-(4-5"?) Lift
-AEV High line?
-(33/35"?) Tires
-(15x8?) Black wheels w/ silver accents
-Fastback-style top (Trektop, Rampage, etc.)
-Rock slider w/ bars
-Winch

The list goes on and on, but for now these are the main things i'm going to be looking into.



My realistic checklist for right now
1) Paint fender flares (Bed liner or the satin black?), the fading is very annoying and unappealing...back to black only lasts for so long
2) (Light Spray) Tint flares and signals, maybe tail lights?
