Which TJ Part(s) for 300$ ?

hello.

today i got a 1200$ tax refund and want to spend the money for some jeep parts.
i already have these parts on my shopping cart at 4wd.com:

- 2x OME N66L and 2x OME N67L shocks
- ARB front diff cover (i get the rear diff cover on another way)
- bestop instatrunk
- husky front floor liners

shipping to germany costs about 200$.

i have still 300$ left.
what part(s) for 300$ could i buy? what would be very useful? what would you suggest/recommend?

thanks in advance.

my problem is that i nearly have anything that i want. lockers, gears, 35s, winch....i still have all that.

perhaps i should go with some rocker guards...but with heavy rocker guards shipping would cost 100$ more.

perhaps i should spend 100$ more and buy a skyjacker rocklock.
http://www.4wd.com/productdetails.aspx?partID=13335

will it fit under my winch? i think it should...

is the rocklock as strong as the stock sway bar?

if i buy that i could sell my JKS disconnects for about 200$, they cost 275$ over here in the jeep shops.

iŽm so lucky that i donŽt have a wife and/or kids. on that way i can spend all the money for my hobby and must not buy some useles things.

matt, i saw in your myspace profile that youŽre 18 years young. when i was 18 i would habe been so lucky with a jeep like yours. i only had a YJ with small stock tires when i was 18.
my old YJ when i was 18 (15 years ago):

Thanks Nico. And your Jeep when you were 18 was still a nice ride, regardless of tire size. I think we're all lucky to have Jeeps. But I do love mine, yeah. Until I pop the D35.

the rocklock is definitely as strong. i've read a lot of good reviews about it. but if you need armor then go for the rocker guards...

You could send it to your needy Jeep friend in America.

I don't have Sally Struthers to do a cheesy sappy ass commercial but I do look pitiful.

I'm doing vac and engien oil temp as Ihave the 5spd. Total around 125 for all three things. You could do it cheap if you buy cheap gauges made in china. But I like the autometer gauges. MADE IN THE USA Go to summit for the gauges and 4wd.com for the pod.

I don't know what to tell you. Look around over there. Autometer is standered measurements. Not metric. Look at summit the shipping should be cheap small package.
