Looks pretty stock and would be a good Jeep to personalize. I would do something other than a skyjacker lift personally.

If you trim your fender flares and take off the running boards you get the illusion of a small lift.

Personally me I wouldn't do that. I would rather pay some cash for a real lift than trim for an illusion. Small Pro Comp lifts normally run a good price. Same with Rancho.

And I agree. But on a budget, free is always nice. Mine has a small lift but I also trimmed the flares for just a little more space.

True. Im just a person that thinks if you are going to do something you save up and do it right. What size tires do you have?

Yep she is stock I added some 265s but that's it ....I've thought about adding a lift and all of this suspension stuff is new to me I've thought about BB but I would like good quality and I've looked for the 2 inch longer coils but all I have found is 2.5 and I've got a budget bout $250 also I've got questions about my drive shaft and steering would I have to do anything with it again I don't want something that will tear my jeep up its all I have to drive so if it turns out that for the good quality I will have to pay a bunch it probly won't happen ....also any other ideas for mods?

They are actually standard Rubicon wheels. I believe they're called Moab. PO painted them to look like a split 5 spoke.

I'm pretty much on a stand still with my Jeep. Just want a winch cover and seat covers. In the meantime I need to get my reverse fixed.

Depends. Do you have plans for aftermarket bumpers? If so what kind of duty?

If you are considering the Olympic for sure, I believe they are fairly heavy duty. You might want to consider a stiffer suspension to compensate for the weight, however, I'm not sure how much an Olympic bumper guard weighs.
