New stubby front bumper or a set of rocker guards. Possibly a winch....

I'm in the same dilemma. I cant decide between new wheels, a bumper, or a winch.

Only $500 - SYE and driveshaft

Add my own money to it - replace D35 with D44 or 8.8.

There's a set of almost new springs on CL for super cheap, get those and a MC front adjustable track bar. Suspension lift done!

The Zone 4.25" Combo lift was the best $500 that I have spent on my Jeep...oh wait, it was $529 shipped.

new windshield would be first on my agenda

after that it gets tougher. I'd probably start buying parts for the eventual lift.

I'd have to go with a cable shifter for my transfer case, then probably dualy D2 lights for my bumper with the rest of it.

If I had $500...I'd still be about $10,000 to $12,000 short of having everything I wanted...but if I HAD to spend it, it would be for Metal Cloak front and rear track bars.
