Upgrades?

So I bought my first Jeep on Friday and am absolutely in love! It's a blue '97 TJ with 31" Lemans tires and Hella fog lights. (Pics coming soon) Any suggestions as to what I should upgrade? I'm a high school student on a budget and I'm not looking to do hardcore wheeling for awhile.

Thanks!
-Tanner

Welcome

There are tons of cheap/free things you can do... There are even entire threads dedicated to cheap mods for your Jeep. Post up some pics and we can advise you on ways to make your TJ your own...

Drive it for a while. You need to know what you have and what it is capable of before you know what needs changing.
Yea, I know, it's new, and you want to make it yours. As IG said, spend some time and search around the forum for ideas.

Paint your headlight rings. They are probably the only chrome on your rig and it's a cheap fix. The Plastikote paint works.

Cool, did you find any threads to point you in the right direction? You can remover the bumper end caps in the front and replace them with flat ones for less than $8 from the dealer. You can paint the bezels as mentioned... there's a ton.. Let me see if I can find the thread...
