Where do I start? Tires, wheels, lift, SYE, bumpers , skids, aux. lighting, rock sliders, gearing..... It never ends! First and foremost, love your Jeep. I treat my TJ like its the last vehicle I'll ever own, and if I have my way, it will be! LOVE it!
The great people on this forum have a TON of real world experience w/ their Jeeps, and are more than willing to help. Do some research, and tap into the knowledge here on Wranglerforum. Pick a path for your Jeep and enjoy! Good luck and happy wheeling!

First thing, in terms of bang for buck, performance (clearance), and being ready for everything else is the over all tummy tuck: SSSYE, DCDS, MML, 1.25" BL and high clearance transfer case skid. With that done many options are open for your next step and eventual lift.

They are the blow-molded plastic ends on the stock bumpers. They don't really add anything in terms of strength. They might just push something out of the way of the front tire if that "something" wasn't too heavy. Many folks pull them off and toss them for both a better look and a slightly better approach for the front tires.

If your on a budget, I suggest getting a can of spray on bed liner. Bed line your door handles, mirrors and maybe even bumpers. I've already done my for handles and it turned out great. Another thing I've seen people so is bed line the bottom two inches of your body, as in make a straight line around the bottom f the fenders and doors, and bed line under that line. All for an $8 can of bed liner

Bumpers and handles on the todo list

Another good one I found on this forum is to bed line a design in your turn signal lights. I've seen arrows, jeep logos and panther eyes. I'm plannin on puttin the monster energy drink symbol in mine. Here's a picture I pulled off this site, not taking credit for it.

I like that idea just not sure I'd do it, rather have other drivers make sure they see my signals completely.

Ahh, okay, thanks! Anyways, I'd say a bb (or a full-out kit) with larger tires to begin.

Well a good one is to put big arrows in them, so that most of the light is still see through and just a small area around the edge is blacked out to make the arrow. But I totally see where your comin from haha

Would like to change out the yellow to a clear signal eventually since it would match my paint.

Yep, that looks nice. Just not liking the 60$ tag for both fenders. Did you do anything for the rear brake lights??

There was one set that had free shipping and only pay 60$ as that was the cheapest I saw on ebay... Like I said, when I have the extra cash, I may get around to it
