Well I would look at things to protect it. Oil pan skid, rocker guards etc, tow hooks etc. 2" BB lift perhaps.

Before we can offer any real suggesations, we need to know a little about your Jeep: Year, mods, what you want to do with it, etc...

I'd suggest that you put your money in the bank and just drive your Jeep stock for awhile. You will be surprised with what it is capable of in stock trim. Think about what it is that you want to do, and then make a plan for what mods are necessary to do it.

I am with unlimited. Put it in a seperate savings account, and roll stock for a little bit. See what you REALLY want to do with the Jeep, and what you think REALLY needs to be changed. Do a bunch of research, and get the right parts the first time, rather than spend $300 on a cheap lift now, and another $900 to replace it later. That $544 will put a nice big chunk in the cost of tires when you do decide what you want to do with it.

Id save that 500 bucks. Do some researching of what you really want or need.

Save the 500 for later. You could buy some armor, but it won't get you that far.

I think Ol' Red was just laughing at the way you said 500 and 44 dollars instead of $544. Don't let him get to you. BTW, $544 is an even amount.
