Smile One last summer project help

Ok everyone, I'm at a loss with what to do next. I love working on my Jeep and want to change up the look a little. I have to go back to college and won't have time to work on it shortly so I want to do one more project to it. Any suggestions? I know I'm stuck with my tires since they are perfectly good and have a ton of life left in them. I'm not incredibly technical with my skills but I am knowledgeable. I'm open to any and every suggestion though. Thanks for the help! Here are a few pic of what she looks like now.

Body lift for a little extra height and flex travel?
Paint your grill and headlight bezels black?
Under armor?

The list goes on & on man, that's what makes jeeps so addicting!

Body lift and mml and take out the t case drop. Or at least make it a few washers.

If I took out the T-case drop would it effect the way it drives? It's my daily driver and I hit the highway for about 5-10 miles per day. I also have a trip to Silver Lake Sand dunes for late summer. Any negative effects if I raised the T-Case? The Jeep has a 3.75" RC suspension lift installed.

Is that the combo lift of a 1.25 BL and a 2.5 Suspension lift?

If so, you shouldn't remove the t-case drop without doing a MML. I suggest the brown dog 1" MML brackets. Sturdy as all hell and made right here in the usa

Installing that will allow you to remove the t-case drop and regain some ground clearance on the trail. However, if that is a 3.75 inch suspension lift, you reealy should be using an sye kit.

So it already has the body lift on it? If so you can just install the mml with tilts the rear of the t case down correcting angles. If it still has vibes you can put a few washers b/w the skid and frame.

The lift I bought was all suspension. I didn't put any body lift on the Jeep and it was stock when I started working on it. So, the way it sits now, I should be installing a SYE kit to regain the ground clearance. I can take pictures when I get home tonight of my t-case skid and the under body so you guys can get a clear ideas of what i'm trying to explain. They say a picture is worth a 1,000 words after all.

Yeah, a MML won't be enough to compensate for that 3.75 and get rid of the entire t-case drop. Save up for an sye kit.
