Also, don't catch the "Mod Bug" and start worrying about things that don't need fixin right off the bat, like seats and so forth. Stick to the under body and under the hood for a while.

I bought that Edge performance pack with the cold air, throttle body, and programmer, and I am very happy with it. It was like 500 something on XDPJeep.com

Good luck and welcome!
Good tip. I'm actually a current army reservist myself, I like those rims a lot too. Thanks again! I suppose ill relocate to a more appropriate forum to document my progress.

First Jeep, Give me some Tips...

Hello all! First of all let me tell you all how happy I am to finally be a part of the Jeep community! Its been a dream of mine for quite some time! A few weeks ago I purchased a yellow 91 Wrangler YJ with 125K for $3,800. She is a 6 cyl. 4.0L Manuel. I'm in the process of bringing her up to my mechanical standards. As I type this she's being inspected. After I find out how many mechanical offensives my Jeep is guilty of, I start to tackle them. After those issues are sorted out, the fun begins. Things I am looking to have done are:

-2" suspension lift, 1" body lift
-31" Tires, black off road wheels
-Hitch
-Tube bumpers, and side steps
-Light Bar w off Road lamps
-Safari Rack
-Rhino lined interior
-new seats
-revamped dash(new dials/gauges, painted)
-Total revamp of audio system (new wiring, head unit, speakers)

The color scheme I'm going to stick with is Banana yellow, and matte black.

I would love to hear opinions, tips, comments on what I should do first. What should my first 3 things I take care of from the list above? Something you think I should do that I overlooked?
