Low Cost Jeep Modification

I thought It'd be cool if we had a thread that lists all of the modifications or upgrades that can be done to a Jeep that cost from nothing up to $100. I'll start.
1. Remove the "milk jugs" from the bumpers.
2. Add driving Lights

You can get a Hi-Lift to mount to the front bumper for around $50, looks cool and extremely useful if you don't have crazy amounts of lift.

Chop your front bumper. Free if you have the tools.

I saw on another forum.

Taller jeep owners can turn the rear view mirror upside down to get a slightly better veiw out of it.

buy used stuff. My first lift consisted of a 3" teraflex coils that I bought used from $80 total. The guy selling was upgrading to a taller lift. I've sold alot of my used parts for uber cheap or gave them away for free.

Keep a watchful eye on craigslist and your local jeep club forums and mailing lists.

if you don't mind giving up your a/c then you can rig an onboard air system for little under 100 dollars
