My 08 jk College Build

I am currently in college so i do not have a lot of disposable income and wanted to show how i am putting mods on my jeep on the cheap. so ill start at the beginning i traded my 2008 toyota corolla in on my jeep
i then found a black grill on craigslist for $125 about a week after i got it, so and it has been like this for awhile.
but the other day i found a lift kit on craigslist for $150 and snatched it up and i will be putting the lift on Thursday. and then i will be uploading pictures of that as well. i am open to inputs and suggestions on how to put the lift on as well. due to the fact that this will be my first time installing one but i have watched enough youtube videos that i feel confident i can tackle it with a buddy of mine.

im still figuring out how to add pictures and then i will add them in to the post but for now here are some pictures

Nice looking jeep. I am actually about to finish college and hopefully pick up a 2010 wrangler sport! It will be nice to see what you do on a low budget, as mine will not be large either. Goodluck, and can't wait to see progress on that lift kit!

I got the lift on. It took around 4 hours for everything (spacers, shocks, track bar bracket,) the install wasn't bad at all I ended up with right around 3 inches in the front and a touch over 2.5 in the rear. The first photo is after I got the front done and the second is parked next to a stock one at work.
