Day 2 of my TJ

So 2 days in to having my 05 TJ I have probably spent roughly 95% of my day on this forum and making my wish list. I only plan on doing relatively inexpensive things at first while I drive it as it is and figure out what I need.

I have already bout 1000' of 550 cord to make a few grab handles and I was thinking I could wrap the tube steps with what I had left over.

I also bought the fold down Molle rack from alanjk427 for the rear tailgate.

So far I want to:
1. Remove tube steps
2. Remove cargo rack, it rattle like hell and doesn't seem as sturdy as I would like.

Once I sell those to a mall jeeper I want to get a rear bumper/tire carrier/cargo rack, possibly from LOD?

I will also probably keep the tires until they are shot. Just some Firestone Destinations.

Any suggestions?
Here's a couple current pictures.

Any suggestions really. I'll probably be looking into all terrains because this will be my DD for a few years.

I believe it's the rugged ridge easy trail rack but I'm not 100% sure. I'll probably keep it for a few more months but keep a look out for it in the for sale forum.

good looking jeep. Yeah mine has nerf bars too, but I decided to try and scrap them off on the rocks. Bent the heck out of them, but they jus don't want to come off.
