Is your Jeep all stock? If not, what has been done to it?

If I had a bone stock Jeep, I would probably spend the $200 on some shocks, or maybe a BB lift, or maybe some extra lighting.

Usually 1 1/2" to 2" depending on the kit. I don't think you will find a BB kit that goes over 2". The cool thing about the 2" BB is that you can run your stock stocks and swaybar links...so it truly is a Budget Boost.

A BB kit will be about $100. Like this one:

Another good thing to consider it you have not...put a recovery/emergency kit together for your Jeep.

Fire Extingisher
Tow Rope
Small Shovel
Jumper Cables
First Aid Kit
Blanket
etc

depending on if you need it or not maybe some interior lighting, some grab handles, seat covers, new roll bar pads, maybe go big and get a tuffy security box of some kind.

If you have a quadratec catalog grab a sharpie and start circling crap like a 9 year old at Christmas when the JC Penny big book catalog came in the mail!

I'm kind of upset they don't have that anymore. Many good memories as a kid with that book.
