New jeep enthusiast, need some opinions please!

I recently bought a 2005 Wrangler Sport and I can not get enough of it! I have been lookin at ways to customize it non stop since before I even got it and now that I have it I am very anxious to start fixing it up. It already has rims on it to give it a wider stance, but what else does everyone else recommend? I know putting a lift on it and such but anything else I can do that is cheaper?

I did a LED tail light swap. It ran for something Like $90 on eBay. Looks way better then stock but with the same stock look

You can always rattlecan or plastidip the stock fender flares. From the looks of the profile pic they look a little faded. Cheap and easy!

O I like new ones too, but they are pricey if you plan to lift, go bigger tires, you may need the deeper pocket flares. The name of the flares say it all, "deep pocket" lol

Welcome!
If the flares are in good shape, but just sun faded, try the "restore" products for trim. Meguiar's and Turtle Wax both make some.
I've used the TW stuff, and am pretty impressed with it so far. Others have sworn that the Meguiar's is the hot ticket.

YMMV, but it's a cheap way to see if they can be made to look new again.

Otherwise, painting them isn't too bad. Fusion paint for shiny, or Duplicolor bumper paint for "rubbery" look.

Thank you! That would defiantly be cheaper than buying new ones!
