Just getting some opinions about it. I can't spend a ton of money on a lift. However...I wouldn't mind changing my exhaust system. Thinking about a Borla. My Dad has a Borla on his, and he loves it.

i would just leave it and enjoy it with the brand new 31s you got, then once they are worn out, do the lift and slap some 33s on it.

I dont see the point of a lift with 31s, maybe a 2 inch BB but id just wait and do a bigger lift with 33s

Yeah, us Jeepers for the most part always are looking to save money but still do it the right way. You could call us "tight asses"

Anywho, you could do alot of little things to make it your own! I'd remove the step, you could paint the stock rims, im guessing the headlight bezels are chrome? You can paint those. Added with a lift that thing would be a different Jeep!

Nice half doors, I love mine

I would say this should be pretty low on the list of things to do to a Jeep on a budget. No real gains to be had by changing the exhaust, go with the 2" BB
