Nice jeep. It's good being lucky enough to get a jeep so early in life and not having any bills so all my money can go to my jeep lol. I graduate in May and have loved my jeep since day one.

Love the progress so far!! I'm in high school too and have an '05 wrangler X. I've done a little work on mine but nothing too major. The most is replacing the headlights and putting on some new bezels, euro light guards, grill inserts, and entry guards that I all got for Christmas. Gotta do a little at a time because I don't have a job at the moment. So I'm getting all my jeep upgrades from birthday and Christmas money

Looks like this could turn into a really nice Jeep, good luck! I'm also in high school and have a TJ, I love it. I can't wait to see it after the suspension lift. I am considering getting the Zone 4.25 combo.

Looks great! I'm in HS and have a red TJ too. I can't do much with it, cuz I'm broke and my parents won't let me lift it because they think it's super dangerous -_- But I do what I can. Look forward to seeing more updates!

Just a high schooler with an orange TJ rolling through. I would keep mods pretty simplistic if I were you until you go with a suspension lift of some sort. New bumpers and such should come after with the extra weight they normally add. Otherwise you will have a really saggy Jeep.

I had planed on some grill inserts bug sheild ( just cuz it gives a tj a nice look) and a bumper guard.... Later this summer im thinking of a 2 inch spacer lift to gimme a lil more clearance and more flex and also it will look a lil more bada$$

Spring spacer right? However, I would just recommend a small spring lift. Of coarse I don't know your wallet. Would definitely recommend new shocks too if they are in your budget. Just got my Bilsteins in and plan on doing my installation this weekend along with my CAI

For a minor lift kit like 2", you really only need some new front and rear coils and matching shocks. Prices for a 2" lift will range anywhere from $400-$700. Just depends on how heavy duty you want it. If you buy one keep the quality of it in mind for later modifications that may add weight. A good middle of the line kit would be Pro Comp.

I've thought of just keeping the stock coils and adding just 2 inch spacer lift ....I've heard of people doing that

It's not necessarily bad thing to do that but as long as you know the only thing it will really do for you is be for show. It's the equivalent of adding a small body lift, just for show and hurts your center gravity a little. It's not my Jeep though so I'm just trying to help.

Money is everything when it comes to personalizing a Jeep. If it were me, I would wait a little, save some money, and then buy a kit just so you don't hinder anything on your Jeep, but still give it a better look and better performance offroad.

Spacers don't give you any more flex than stock just an FYI...
If you are going to lift it, just wait and get a real spring lift now and save money in the long run so you don't buy two lift kits, and get a good set of shocks. If you get a body lift, you can get a tummy tuck and even more clearance, better break over angle.

Oh yes I know, it's really awesome, but that's for when I'm going like every weekend, and if I'm going every weekend, I'm doing all of the above first. Maybe axle swap instead of the shafts, but I'll see when I get there. My hopes are to get a cheap DD, and turn this into a trail pig or get a cheap Jeep to use as a trail pig.
All in good time
