Here you go 1.75" BB, 31's, Dick Cepeck DC-2 wheels, ebay special rock sliders.

And there is nothing wrong with a little "bling" on a Jeep I've got the drake billet grill and mopar billet fuel door. The first pic was before I took my jugs off


Just remember its your rig do with it what you see fit.

your jeep also reminds me of mine when I bought it lol, heres a before and after with 1.5 years into it









best thing you can do IMO is watch craigslist! I purchased most of the armor for my jeep off CL, gas tank skid = $25 and a few hours of work, rear PSC crusher corners were like $120 for both already primed, full replacment tube fenders were like $200 or something off CL brand new.. lots of good stuff on there

Your not the only one. I know people say dont wash it blah blah blah. But the way i see it if you use your jeep and get it dirty who cares if you wash it and keep the paint shiny. I love the way my jeep looks when its clean! turns heads!

I'm with everything MickeYJ said... ditch the chrome. If you like the side steps, upgrade to the armored side rails. They are less likely to be ripped off and do double duty of protecting the side of your tub.

CrackrJack, first...love your dog, we have a Bullterrier too. He/she seems to think your Jeep is cool enough to sit in



Then...everyone is showing you their offroad monsters, (way cool btw, don't get me wrong) and that may be overwhelming.

I just started out modding mine, also on a budget.

BTW...I wouldn't paint your rims, they are very nice, but that's imo.

Ok, some pics:

Barn find





Ditched front bull bar, lamps, rear mudflaps and some other stuff right away.

Got me a stock bumper, tow hooks and 2,5" lift (used, so cheap)



Traded the alloy rims for a set of steel Pro-Comps, found a slightly used set of 31" mudders and here is what it looks like today:

Haha thanks for the puppy love! Is yours a complete pain in the butt also? I'm sad to say that he inspired my first mod to my jeep as I removed the back seat so he could have more room haha.

It looks like you really put in some work on your jeep! It's lookin good! Keep up the good work!

I'm in agreement with Mickey. The dash being red is too much. The center bezel would be ok, but the dash makes it asymmetrical and messes with my OCD.
