Suggestions please

Just purchased my first jeep two days ago (great I know). Anyway it's not in the greatest shape and needs about 1200 worth of mechanical repairs. Can anyone suggest some things I can start off with making it much nicer. What to do to it with a list of products etc. Any suggestion will be appreciated!

First, welcome to the forum, I think the first step is to make it mechanically stable, then put together a game plan for what you want to accomplish. I see your in NY so it has to pass inspection, jeeps are endless possibilities. Express yourself. Enjoy.

Looks like a nice clean yj to start with. I agree get your mechanical issues out of the way. Then have fun. Lift and tires are a good start. Depending on motor (2.5 or 4.0) don't go too big. Specially if you need good gas mileage. This forum has a lot of great ideas. Enjoy

Thanks for the advice. Any lift kits/tires you'd recommend? I'm looking at a budget of around $2,000 to start with and then add on as I'll go along.

2.5" lift would be fine. 31" tires fit nice. That's what I have. Lil work you could squeeze 32" or 33". I'm in the process of putting flat fenders on front. Amoung other things. Tires and rims can make a big dif. With the look. Get some rims with more offset. So the bigger tires don't rub. At full turn mine would just catch on springs. Black rims look better anyways.
