yjkid95 Jeesh I busted my butt just to get my 3000 dollar yj and everything I have into it. My parents didnt and wont give me a single dime. But atleast you seem to really appreciate what they are doing for you. Good luck with the jeep. And 7 grand will get you just about everything youll want. A quality 3 inch lift, tires, wheels, and after you up the size of your tires to what ever you desire (my guess is 33's) I suggest you get it regeared appropriatly. That way you wont lose any power. And do yourself a favor get a 4.0 with a Dana 44 rear in it already.

You should get a lift, tires, rhino line the tub, winch, lockers... a lot can be done with that much. I wish my parents would give me 7k to put into my jeep lol. Good luck!

G-Pur Welcome to the forum, and good luck finding your Jeep. Just make sure to hold out for the 'right one'. Having your first is always a big decision, and its one that you both must make together. The Jeep will choose you, and you'll know it. Just make sure to get some protection so she won't lose her gorgeous figure.

As for the D35, don't worry too much about it. if you only want to lift 3", you can run 32's without incident.

XJ Knight Just a little heads up when looking for a Jeep TJ if that is the route you go, Do yourself a favor and get one with a Dana 44 rear axle at least.. The more common rear axle the Dana 35 is bad news when it comes to offroading..

Well, your set then. There's a lot you can do with 7K. Seat covers are another suggestion.
