Blown Vette LS motor with 6 speed auto and Atlas 4. Then do a stretch, with Dynatrac 60's and aluminum armor. Then top it off with some 40's.

I was thinking brand new 24 valve cummins 6bt with supercharger and turbo haha. Full length axles, not sure which but large ones, lockers all round. Then some KING coilovers.

I'd get the complete Currie 4" lift, bilsteins or ranchos, a Warn winch, a tummy tuck, and whatever else I could think of.

Sell it because if I win the lottery, I'll be buying a helicopter. Don't need the jeep when you can just fly over everything

Probably a BIG twin turbo diesel V8. Some big ass axle's running a minimum of 40's. Warn everything. Lockers. Beadlock wheels and beef everything up to deal with the extra beast......end then just anything else I could possibly think of.

Also I think I would employ a good mechanic to do ALL of the work with me hanging around and helping out when i felt like it.....that would be the life haha

Dude, when I ride doorless I blare "Ride of the valkries" over the radio. "I love the smell of napalm in the morning." It's as close to a heli as I'm ever gonna get.

Best one yet haha, I like the employing a mechanic to help part. As soon as I get pissed off with something I'd be like "I'm done you fix it" haha

I'd sell the jeep, fly to England, purchase a completely rebuilt and restored Defender 110, TDI, outfit it for long range travel, drive thru the Chunnel, head southeast across Russia, then into China, from Hong Kong take a slow boat to Australia, spend a year exploring Australia, take a slow boat to South America, and head home, to my new house located in the Monte LaSal mountain range in Southeast Utah. All told a 4 or 5 year trip.. Any one else wanna go ?

If I won the lottery, as much as I have enjoyed doing my own work, I think with that much $$$ I would just hand Blaine Johnson (Black Magic Brakes aka mrblaine) a blank check & make him agree to let me watch if I don't get in the way too much.

53's might be a little overkill for me but the rest is spot on haha

I'd get some 'angry eye' decals, throttle body spacer, paint the rims and bedline something.

4bt swap, full tube frame, front end stretch and hydro steering with self centering valve to finish my rig and turn it into a buggy. I'd love to have my tires infront of my front bumper

I'd strip her down to the very last bolt, clean, restore and rebuild, with a reasonable lift, new running gear all round, 33s, custom paint work, and a custom interior. Might even treat her to a 4BT swap.... nothing over the top, don't want to spend it all at once....

And I'd also go buy another TJ.....

I would make my current tj a trail rig only, like 37's on it, with a turbo cummins in it, winch, lights, the whole 9 yards, and then by a stick rubicon LJ, lift it on 33's, bumpers, winch, lights, both hard and soft top, and make it my every day driver, then buy a ford svt raptor to haul around my tj on a trailer, then for fun either a corvette zr1 or cts-v coupe, both either black on black or blue with black rims
