I'll try to take some tonight as soon as she rolls out of the bay at Goodyear.

Yeah, I can't believe the deal on her myself. As I have it figured out, including the price I paid for her, the new wheels, top, carpet, seat covers, sound system, lift, shocks, complete brake job, tune up, auxiliary lights etc. I will be coming in under 14k at the most. Only 10.6k of that is actually on the loan to buy her.

Now watch the engine fall out, after I have spent all the extra cash.

Every time I have spent money on a mod or an upgrade, something fell apart on mine hahaaa...Definitely do a write up on those tires and follow up at like 5k, 10k, 20k, etc... I would love to see how they do over time. Congrats on the Jeep!

Good for you! It's so cool hearing how excited and happy people are when getting their first Jeep. I was (and still am) the same way.

Lights for sure. I have six in total to put on it. Two on the front bumper, two at the windshield and two rectangular lights that will be mounted right under the rear bumper.
Winch, maybe at some point. I have thought about one.
As for the bumpers, honestly, I kind of like the small factory bumpers. I think with the lights and maybe a winch it would look fine.

Things still on the to-do list that have been purchased are...
-1" body lift to replace the 3" that is on it
-2" suspension spacers to counter the loss of the extra 2" from replacing the body lift
-Rancho RS5000 shock's with matching steering stabilizer
-full brake job (ceramic pads, shoes, rotors, drums, hardware...)
-lights (3 pair)
-tint door windows
-alarm
-new carpet
-1200 watt sound system with 10" sub built into rear seat
-Carr Hoop side steps

I think that about covers the list of initial mods / upgrades...

Speaking of, anyone ever try to paint shocks before?
The Rancho's are white and red, I would like to make them black and red. I was thinking about trying to paint them with this stuff before putting them on.
Dupli-Color :: Projects :: Undercoat
The previous owner had painted under the fenders with something like it and it is holding up well.

I think you're talking about my roof rack. If so, I just bought this recently so I'll be holding on to it a bit longer.
