HELP please!

Here's what I have:

2000 sport
4.0 auto
Dana 35
31" tires

Here's my issue:

My jeep looks like a baby!!!
I am trying to stay away from a lift for these reasons:
I'm short....I have a hard enough time getting in her as it is
I only take her in mud and mild woods...will not be rock crawling or heavy off roading
I just bought the 31" tires last May and only have about 1,000 miles on them.

That being said......what can I do to make her look a little more aggressive?

Turn the whitewalls in....take the top and doors off...
Aggressive is done by doing those things you don't want to do, lift and bigger tires.

I suppose you could mount a .50 cal in the back...that should probably do it lol!

Nice looking jeep btw

I debated on the whitewalls for 2 days before having them mounted!
The top and doors will come off as soon as PA thaws out
So, if I go for a lift.....Id have to go with bigger tires, right? What about the Dana 35?

It looks nice. I would run it the way it is and call it good.

lol just some humor. I wouldn't worry about the D35 until you start doing some serious offroading. Sounds like you'll be puddle jumping and hitting some mild trails.

You could put a 2" budget boost in that would help. Not sure how that would look with 31's. It's a cheap alternative to a full suspension lift that still gives your jeep a new look.

Thanks Doc....I've done the cosmetic stuff (bed lined fender flares, rims, etc). Going to bedline the grill next month.

If I go for the BB, is there anything else I need to go along with that? I've been reading the threads regarding lifts, and my brain hurts!

I just did my grill 20 mins ago.

As far a bb it all depends. That's what I have. I have 2" bb and didn't need anything else. Just the spacers,shocks and bumpstops extensions.

Every jeep is different. You might need to lower transfer case if you get vibes. I didn't.

Bumpers and additional lights will make it look tougher.

Grill looks great!

What size tires are those?

I see you cut your fender flares.....I was thinking of that too.

Go to your local weld shop. Two custom bumpers should be under $200 as long as you measure and have plans drawn up. I had a temporary rear bumper welded up for $55 and it looked pretty bad-ass, just took some c-channel. You could have a piece of pipe bent and welded on as a stinger for like $50, and to add effect you could weld different gussets onto it.
