I am also in high school, but I have a black jeep. Over the last summer I restored it and decided to bedline the whole thing. Right now it has only a 1" BL. I also put on smittybilt tube fenders kuz my fenders were rusting out. I am a senior and I leave for Marine Basic Training this July. Im going to leave my jeep pretty much how it is till I'm settled down somewhere in the Corps. But in the future I plan on :
4" lift
4 linked rear Dana 44 with 4.88 gear ratio and E locker
3 linked front high pinion Dana 35 with 4.88 gears and E locker
Custom flat skid plate and SYE
35" tires with new rims
Rock sliders and metalcloak arched tube fenders
And many more mods. But for now I'm just going to hit the trails until I leave for boot camp.

Yes, very bone stock...but not for long. Looking at putting on some 33" Goodyear Wrangler MT/R's with 15x8 MT Sidebiters. Cleaning up a winch currently and have dually LED lights on the way for my windshield. Also gunna change out the lift to something a little nicer like Teraflex.

I'm almost 15 and have been saving up for a jeep for almost 2 years now and I know I'm way to young to be worrying about but just want to have the best jeep in highschool 750 in our school. 100 jeeps. But planning on 4.5 lift 35s and Metalcloak bumpers and fenders. Any suggestions?

Crunch some numbers and add the costs to a Jeep cost. Make sure you have enough.

I hope you know that unless you have $13000-15000, a decent Jeep is going to be tough to come by. Honestly, forget about the sound system and lighting in my opinion for a while and use that money towards the Jeep itself. In a way, it's difficult to just jump into the customization of a Jeep all at once. I would put $10000 towards the Jeep, get a job to earn some money and then accumulate what you want through high school.

For the 4.5" lift, save yourself a couple hundred dollars to do a 3" suspension and a 1.25" body lift.

I started building my Chilli Pepper Red '98 in high school and this thread is bringing back some memories. Since everyone at XT knows what it's like to do a build on a budget, we want to hook you up with something from your wish list. How about we send you over that Engo winch you wanted? If you're interested just shoot me a PM!

Keep up the good work on the build. The rig looks good!
