A few questions for Jeep owners

Going to pick up my '98 Wrangler 4.0 Auto tomorrow and I'm very anxious to start working on it. I'll probably be reselling it within a year or so and I wanted to get everyones opinion on what will help me and what will hurt me on resale.

Firstly, it's gonna be my toy for a year so i'm really wanting to do a 2" lift, and aftermarket wheels and tires which will be around $1,000 all together. For you who are experienced in buying, modifying, and selling jeeps; Do you tend to get your money back out of these mods on resale?

Secondly, I did alot of things to my mustang to improve the looks that didn't cost hardly anything (such as painting certain accent pieces inside and out); and was wondering if anyone knows any cheap mods I can do to this jeep to improve looks?

Thanks guys

you will NOT get your money back for mods. It will help you sell it for KBBish plue MAYBE a little more.

Improving looks for cheap?...

Paint head light bezels black
Remove bumper end caps
Monstaline/Hurculine interior tub
Corner Armor
