ygohome I'd just go for "functional". start with diff covers and beefed up steering. Then upgrade the axles, gears, and get some lockers.

then get a mild lift and some larger tires

That should do it What kind of trails do they have in Michigan?

Lose the front license plate, too.

s3nt3nc3d IMO, painting the top black as mentioned will really help...everything else accenting your Jeep's color is black except the wheels and hard top...the wheels don't look too bad IMO, but the tan hard top is kind of the "odd man out".

Also, tires make all the difference in the world... I think a more aggressive tread will completely change the look of your Jeep.

Lastly...a 2" BL would look good. Judging from the pictures, your Jeep looked stock height with slightly larger tires on it as I didn't realize you had 33" tires on it with a 2" BB until I read your sig. Adding a 2" BL will increase the space between your tires and your fenders...combine that with a more aggressive tread on your tires and it'll look badass.

Not to say it doesn't look good now...that's a really nice ride as it is. But ANYTHING can be improved

My $.02.

Jp90Talon List looks good. However I do suggest looking at the same items at 4wd.com . They often have discounts plus free shipping available. With larger items like the flares, auards and lifts you can save quite a bit in shipping as well as the packing fees sites like Quadratec nail you with.

BeepBeepImaJeep Update:

thanks everyone, yeah i love my jeep I just look at some of the extreme builds i see around town and get a little jealous i guess!

So yeah I've got my game Plan set in and everything, I'll hopefully have everything on by the third week of January!

List is as follows:
Xenon 4" Flat Panel Flare Kit
:Xenon 9190 - Xenon 4" Flat Panel Flare Kit for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec:
OR-FAB Rocker Panels with Bars
:OR-FAB 84201BB - OR-FAB Rocker Panels with Bars for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ - Quadratec:
Performance Accessories 2" Body Lift Kit
:Performance Accessories 972 - Performance Accessories 2" Body Lift Kit for 97-06* Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited with 5 Speed Manual or Automatic Transmission - Quadratec:


I'm already in love with the jeep but after that i really think its going to look awesome. After my AT tires run down a bit I'm going to mount some Pro Comp Extreme MT tires on there. id love to jump from 33" to 35" but the problems i face are, idk if they would fit with only 4" of lift (2 bb +2BL+ flatfenders). and even if they did fit, I'm only on stock gearing (either 3.73 or 3.07's)

so yeah

problems solved by new parts:
Flares - untuck tires and show more sus (increasing the distance between tire and jeep)
Guards - take off steps and look eff'n sweet
Lift - ha its lift lol its always good
12-05-2009 05:05 PM
rozzo842 I think it looks good
11-20-2009 04:43 PM
Ohio Wrangler 21 I removed my step bars and the little fender flare that mounts behind the front fender. I then painted the rockers. I think it makes the jeep look taller without using a lift. Instead of painting the rockers you could us a rocker cover.
11-20-2009 02:50 PM
scottrock More rugged?

Loose the following:

shiny wheels
steps
flares
AT's
hard top


And throw on some:

Black wheels
rockers
flatty's
MT's
and yeah a black soft top or bikini would rock that thing out

Nice looking rig anyway

11-20-2009 02:37 PM
Bignuke I agree with most of these guys said already, stock fender flares, black rims, black soft top. IMHO the 6" fender flares are way too much.
11-12-2009 11:20 AM
mrcarcrazy Your Jeep looks perfect, tell your Dad to send a check to my address. My jeep is much more pathetic than yours. PM me and I'll give you the address!

Thanks

Correct, a body lift will NOT alter the suspension.

BeepBeepImaJeep Ight sounds good guys!

i think rockers w/ rails... 2" BL + whatever my father chooses to put under my hood at HIS expense... i was like "im not wasting my money on no stinkin' CAI" "put it in the camaro"... then he went on to tell me how the camaro didn't need it. even though he knows it would be cool sounding. lol

BLACK SOFT TOPPPP NEVER THOUGHT OF THAT. thanks man!
11-10-2009 07:44 PM
2002Apex black soft top, rockers with rails, 2 more inches of lift.

Flares: I like them. Yeah, less aggressive with the tires tucked, but more functional in that you won't be getting hit in the face with crap while wheeling doorless. Unless you're given some stockers for free, I'd use the money elsewhere.

Wheels: I like yours. However, black rims will look more aggressive. Your call (as all of this is). Might could just paint them.

Rockers: definitely. Dump the steps, get rockers with rails.

Suggestion: Paint the hardtop/flares/mirrors/window guides/signal guards with Krylon Fusion Satin Black. Bringing out the black (instead of khaki and faded black) will give it a more aggressive look without spending a lot of $$ IMHO. I like the khaki top, but the black will change the look of the Jeep immediately.

Again, just my .02!
11-10-2009 07:42 AM
mudslinger150 a few guys on here have stock fenders to give away, im not included...

stock fenders will deff make the jeep look more aggressive, how about one of those hood scoop deals? they sit on the wiper bezel, im not sure what it does for you though, under that bezel there is no access to the engine compartment...

I hate how quadratec does that, sure its useful in replacement parts but if you don't pay attention you can get all excited until you get the parts and realize that you screwed up. First hand learner here

Xenon 9200 - Xenon 4" Flat Panel Rear Flares for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec
There is a 1997 TJ featured on the cover of 4wheel drive & sport utility magazine with those xenon flat flares. They look pretty good. I didnt think I would like them.

Vaultzz Take off your top and doors, that always beefs a Jeep up

(btw I have those pics if you still want them, I just wasn't sure how to send them in a pm)

Sadly i don't have the stocks, the jeep came with the larger 6" flares.

tube fenders... never thought of doing that! hmm ill have to look into Arkansas's tire coverage laws because I'm going to college up there.

11-09-2009 10:50 PM
Scout Add a little lift to it. A 2" BL isn't the worst thing in the world although it isn't the best either. And yeah, I agree with the tires tucked under those fender wells. Lose the 6" flares and go back to stock or add some tube fenders, front and rear. You're in Texas, we don't have tire coverage laws here.
11-09-2009 10:49 PM
BeepBeepImaJeep i saw the pictures with the black wheels off, stick looked awesome.

ill be getting some M/T's in Time, i might want some looks, but im not going to throw away good tires for nothing. The tires still have like 85% tread on them, once they wear down I'm all over the 33" KL71 MT's


Yeah i get where your coming from, well taken care of and everything, but i mean you can see from the pictures, its very well taken care of. Just its style isn't bold enough for me.

Getting the MT's, rocker guards and lift should help most defiantly. and maybe i can powder coat my rims.
11-09-2009 10:44 PM
MR.CLIFFORD What does that mean when I took the black wheels off?? Aggressive isn't everything. I don't think my current jeep looks aggressive. I'd rather it be nice looking. Well taken care of.

If you want aggressive looks you will need to get less backspacing on your wheels. Stick the tires out some and ditch the A/T's.
