Thanks for the tips and the encouragement. I'll have to hit my father up for some welding lessons. I'll let you all know what I end up going with. I usually spend a good week or two looking into everything before I buy.

Make sure you decide what type of welding you want to do. There are several types of welders out there. The easiest to master is the mig welder...it's the most forgiving. The cheapest is arc welding...but takes more practice. You can get into a good mig welding set up, with argon, welder and wire for about $600. You can usually find an arc welder and rods for about $350.

Welding is a very handy skill to have. That knowledge has helped me numerous times in the repairs of my previous 4x4's. Another handy skill is to be able to use a torch properly.

Instead of the winch, I upgraded my rims to Pro Comp Xtreme Alloys and tires to 32" BFG MT's. I bought the rear bumper - Bestop Highrock because of its tow rating, and Warn differential covers and steering box skidplate.

This month, I will be buying a new front bumper and replacing the broken/ripped parts on the soft top. I bought the 3 rear windows but hadn't checked out the doors. Well...found out that they're ripped too - guess I should have checked before I removed the hard top.

The winch and rock sliders will have to wait until later

I would wait a bit for a winch. Its a good thing to have but i mean i think where your at right now you need armor and a few other things before a winch. And a winch is a pretty big investment. I've heard to always get a company that has a good rep with it because many ppl have been stranded when there winches havent pulled through.
