Help me spend my money?

I have a '97 all stock minus 31's, hella fog lights, new 6.5 speakers in the sound bar, an Alpine deck and a new top. I recieved a $100 Quadratech giftcard for Christmas. I'm a high school student on a budget so I'm thinking a small lift or a cheaper winch. Opinions?

Thanks!

I would go with a 2" BB like this one! Even a little lift will set your jeep off from the rest. A winch would be awesome but if you're like me, you will save your money to buy a warn or another reliable brand! Let us know what you decide!!

If you buy a winch don't go cheap, you'll get what you pay for. If I were you, I would get a small body lift. Nothing crazy like my 3" the PO put on my jeep (saving up for a 4" suspension). Another cool thing you might want to look at is a CB Radio setup.

Not a bad looking lift for the money.

I've shopping around for BB's and I like that Teraflex, but it doesn't come with shocks. So I'm probably looking at the skyjacker 2" BB with hydro shocks

If you can throw down the extra money for shocks with the BB I would say thats the way to go. DO NOT get a cheap winch. Go with the BB it's probably the best bang for your buck to give your jeep a little lift.

BB is the way to go. I had that kit on my 97 TJ and I was real happy with the way it turned out. Great deal for the money!
