i was thinking about getting the jks 1.25 bl w/ a browndog 1" MML that would be $200 total any other ideas... im sure alot of you will look at my little jeep and say it could use another $500 i actually considered tube fenders scout.... Maybe bumpers, rockers, line-x, seat covers, ipf 968's, crusher corners, disco's, i dont know but i think you get the point.... what would you guys do w/ $500?

you could do 2'' springs/coils for 320-350..

then spend the other 150-180 on lights or something else

or a nice set of rockers instead of the lift

i have a plan (...and 33's) but it looks something like Mr. Cliffords , so just about everything is game. I just dont know what order to go in, or what works best w/ what i have now. (and in the case of tube fenders looks coolest ) thanks

very good point...also, don't try to cheap out and buy something thats cheap just so you can get it now...you will regret it later...and chances are that you just "think" you like it

yea, i learned that w/ lights... i had Harbor freight lights $20, went to Hella's $80, and now i want IPF 968's... lucky that was the first thing i did when i got it, so everything else has been quality 1st. An extra $20-50 here and there will pay for itself in not having to be replaced. good point though!

Get armor. Then get yourself a HF winch or a locker.

Id suggest getting a belly up skid and then a sye/tom woods drive shaft but you'll be about $350 shy. Unless of course you can build your own skid, then the shaft and sye are $500. Sometimes a little cheaper. Still, if you ever go higher your gonna need it. If you dont wanna do that then Id say get a locker maybe. It makes a TON of difference. Mine hasnt been too bad on the road either (Detroit locker). Rocker guards would probably be my 3rd choice but they are very important. I only say those last becasue if your careful you could probably avoid much rocker damage, but who wants to be careful!?

Your bestest friend Jeff could use $500 to help pay for Paramedic school. lol j/k I think you should save some and spend the rest on whatever you want. Just think it through and you will make the right choice.

you might as well get this instead of the 1.25" it
you can get one on ebay for $80 form black mountian

you really shouldnt need a steering stabalizer, if you rhaving issues the stabalizer just covers them up, doesnt solve them

ok, well with a 2" bl what else needs to be done other than sliding in the pucks. I know brown dog make a 2"MML so im not worried about the fan shroud. TC drop, gas filler extension? Tripple88a i know you have one- what all up w/ a 2"? you think a 2" MML is safe?
