02' jeep tj, what next??

I am building my 02 jeep tj and so far the only thing I can think to do is new speakers because I've done a lot to it already.

I want to do the red radio surround as seen in the 3rd picture but not sure what else
Any ideas?

Frame swap because old one was bent
New hood grille and fenders because it was previously wrecked
Tube fenders
4in skyjacker lift kit
1in body lift
Bumpers (xrc series)
Radio
Basically went through the whole engine and replaced a good amount of parts on that
Radiator
Led turn signals in the front
35"tires and aftermarket rims

Items that I'm waiting to get (saving some cash)
Led light bar and cubes
Winch
Sidesteps.


I'm just not sure what else I can do? Any ideas.

Check out the "Cheap mods" thread. Lots of small cool stuff you can do in that thread.


Did your lift include things like a SYE? if not that would be good.

Maybe some armor and a belly up skid.

LED rear lights (I like the flush mount 4" lights...but there are other options if that doesn't tickle your fancy).

Like mentioned it all depends on the intended use of the Jeep and how you wheel. I see you put 35s on, did you regear??? cause if not it's probably a dog or sluggish. Also what axles are you running... If your running a D35 rear that's a ticking bomb waiting to go. Might want to atleast look into a 8.8 swap.

I think OwenTJ nailed down a good list.

I have a ford explorer 8.8 rear need sitting at home from when I bought my previous jeep ( it was included). I just need the brackets to make it work. But I haven't regeared. I have another jeep with 410 front 383 rear so I might take the 410 out of the front and put my spare 383 front in there and use my spare 410 for the rear until I do the swap to 8.8

4.10s will still be a dawg with 35s...
I have them with my 35s and suck on the street. I have a 6cyl, 5spd so will most likely go to 4.88s

Artec and TnT have some great brackets and truss systems for the 8.8 swap. Check out Artecs page for it.
