Ready to build up my jeep! Where to start?

Have a 2011 Wrangler Unlimited. It has everything stock except for MT's. What do you guys think I should do first?

Depends what your budget is.

If you have a couple grand lying around, lift it ! Rubicon Express, Teraflex, or OME are all reputable brands.

If you've got a grand lying around look into a rampage recovery front bumper and get yourself a nice winch (Engo seems to be popular, but everyone will recommend warn. It's like the apple or glock of the Jeep world... Good product... Obnoxious recommendations)

If you've got a couple hundred lying around, you could do a budget boost. Or you could drop a Sears Diehard Platinum battery in it.

If you've got a couple twenties lying around, grab a few cans of plastidip and go nuts (search around the googles/forum for ideas)

If you're as broke as most of us (from dumping all our money into mods) take the doors and top off and cruise around (depending on temp of course)

First I would think about how long you plan on keeping and what kind of offroading you do if any at all then figure what size tire you plan on running. Then figure lift for tires and gears. I did all lift and tires before bumpers. You could trip fenders, make a shorty bumper out of the factory bumper That gives some clearance and that offroad look. You could also paint your door hinges and hood hinges black.
