Best way to spend $300??

Ok everyone, I need to know what I should get for 300 bucks. Got it for christmas and I wanna spend it on my jeep. I have a dana 44 in back, just bought new tires (duratracs).
Im thinking either a bumper, or rims. I could get 370 if it was worth it. So try to keep it under 300, but just a little over would be ok. Thanks!!

After stripers and shots AND hookers and beer.. Then If you don't have all of yours yet I'd look at skid plates.. I like the idea of the OBA and also the 1.25bl + mml also.. As it will help open you up to the idea of lcg skids. My first thought was winch but after you get a mounting plate at minimum then your near or over 400 bucks. another idea is a cb radio as they are important to have for easy communication on the trail

Onboard air, though the strippers and shots idea is mighty tempting

Im a disagree.. I go rear before front.. But still hard to argue whether you go front or rear as you can get the best auto locker on the market for under 300 bucks

send it to me, I'll forward it to my uncle who is a Nigerian prince who will in turn send you your $300 back in the form of a check for $40,000 which he needs cashed and since its American check, he can't deposit it in Nigeria. Deposit the check and wire the money directly to his account, minus your $300 of course, and you can keep an extra $1000 just for assisting us with this.

LMAO... i couldn't resist.

Many times I was stuck in one of those wtf moments and I wish I had a winch.

Jeeps dont get stuck......they take breaks.That break could be shorter if you have atleast an 8klb winch

a rear bumper with a swing out tire carrirer would be nice too

rip out the carpet and rhino line the inside
