what to do

im going to be getting 2,000 bucks from good ol' uncle sam for college. however my scholarship covers everything, so that 2k will be mine. i am going to put 1k towards my jeep payment but im not sure what i want to buy with the other 1k. i know its my decision but, some input would be appreciated

my jeep already has:
- Rubicon Express 4.5 inch Long Arm Lift
- 33" BFGs w/American Racing Alum Wheels
- Durango 4x4 Front/Rear Bumpers
- Dana 44, 33 spline rear axels
- Detroit Locker (rear)
- ARB Air Locker (front)
- Master Craft Seats w/ 4pt restraints, and weather proof seat covers
- 4:10 Reduced Gear Ratio
- Soft top w/ tinted windows
- hard full doors (tinted) & fabric full doors
- Bikini top & Tonneau Cover (Both New)
- JKS quick swaybar disconnects
- Warn Rocker Guards
- Old Man Emu Long Travel Gas Shocks
- Alpine Stereo (Controls iPod from Deck) w/ bass tube
- Tuffy Security Center Console
- Tuffy Security Cargo Cage
- Air Aid High Flow Intake w/ K&N Filter

im thinking i definately want:
-winch (preferable under 500)
-CB radio

Things im considering:
-Mud terrain tires OR 2 new ATs since 2 of mine are in bad shape (idk which ones i want yet)
-nice rims
-possibly get someone to weld a stinger

do you guys have any other ideas or recommendations?

Call me crazy but wouldn't you want to put the money toward your tuition or books?

License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.

If you have tires in bad shape, you should make them high priority; Safety First!

Have you considered a supporting membership? It's only 25 bucks, and you get a wf sticker. As for the other $1975, I'd go with a full roll cage, and a bag of doritos and call it a day.
