What have you bought for your jeep lately?

Curious to see what everyone else is working on since winter is here. Post up what you've bought or have on the way. If I see some interesting parts I will post up my short list I've gone through over the past 2 days .

Most recently, gas. I'm afraid to buy anything. I don't know what Santa is bringing.

In the last three months...let's see.

ORO U-Turn Steering
4" RC X-Series Lift
Superlift Adjustable Front Track Bar (about to be an RE)
35" MT Claws
Rockcrawler black steelies
PSC Trail Stinger
PSC Sliders
Tereflex 3/4" Spacers (front and rear)
Banks Exhaust
TNT Tube Fenders
New Roller Fairlead
New Winch Plate
PSC Trail Corners (about to be PSC full corners or TNT's)
OME LT Shocks (nice!)

That's all I can think of. Do I win?

I know Andy has some goodies in his garage. I saw some boxes in one of those pics he posted up. Spill your beans!

Right before Christmas is an impossible time for me to try and put together cash for the Jeep. I have two boys who come first. If I don't have to dip into it, I have a grand saved up for the lift. But the only thing I've done lately is buy tow hooks.

You shouldn't have bought tow hooks. I have countless pairs in the shop. Should have asked

You don't have a problem yet. Wait until you get your jeep finished with the way you think it should be. Then take all that crap off, sell it, and start completely over.

Then, my friend, is when you have a problem

I may be getting close. I've already replaced a few brand new parts (less than a couple of months old). This sh*t is addictive.

At this point I like the "from" better. Those 22's are really bugging me.

When will you have it finished? (I know never really finished, but finished for the most part)
