Advice, ideas and suggestions

I haven't been on Wrangler Forum for that long of a time. And I don't post a whole lot. But I read a whole lot on here. I've learned so much. And now I'm in a bit of a situation.

Before I found the site, I invested a lot of money into guns. I've been thinking about selling one to put more money into my TJ.

I have an '05 white TJ sport. 4 inch skyjacker lift kit. MT classic lock wheels. 33x12.5 GY MTR. Rock Hard 4x4 rear bumper and tire carrier. Smittybilt src front bumper with Warn M8000 winch and KC lights. That's all I've done to it.

If I sold the gun, I could get $1800. All of it would be put into the Jeep. Now, I'm just not sure WHAT exactly I could do. I've considered a 2 inch body lift so I can run 35 inch tires. But other than that, I can't come up with any other ideas.

You guys are the TJ guru's here. What would you suggest? I even have wondered about a long arm kit, but don't know how and/or anything about them.

I just need some suggestions and ideas on what to do. Thanks!

Decisions, decisions. So many goodies and so little money. When will it end? LOL!!

First off, how much heavy 4 wheeling do you plan on doing?

Maybe look at different diffs, dependent on what you have already. Or Lockers.

Lifts and such are nice, but having the grunt capability underneath you may get you further down the trail. High off the ground is nice, but not as nice as having all FOUR wheels digging you out of a hole.


Way back when one of my best buds had a raggedy old CJ5. Sat on skinny military treads, and locked diffs. He would P/O the other 4wd's by going right through the same stuff they had to battle through, then he'd climb out and lock his hubs in.

Engine skid plate, rock sliders, body armor, air compressor, CB. Just for a start. Just one at a time so as to ease the cash outlay. Good luck, and keep having fun.

I did this. Sold some guns that I NEVER used (kept the ones I like) and bought Jeep parts.

One of the first things I bought with my gun runnin money was my SwayLOC.
