I highly recommend Morris 4X4, by the way! I've ordered 4 different times and have received impeccable service!

4wd hardware and quadratec have good catalogs for free. If you're in the southeast u.s. I'd check out Fortec which also is free catalog.

All those mods are no good if you have a hole in your drivetrain. There are plenty of websites to look at for parts and ideas but it's whatever fits your budget. Quadratec, Fortec, 4wd hardware and northridge 4x4 are a few good places to look. Good luck with your build and congrats.
.....some very helpful tips you have given me I appreciate it

This lol! Also roofs on Wranglers are not designed to carry a load other than snow and rain so I would probably be a little careful-but at least you had manners to respect the Jeep and removed your shoes.

Suggestions: if it is a street queen, real headlights. If you plan to offroad, do you have any recovery gear?

Edit: if those pinky things ARE shoes step one would be surrender the man card and trade for a Prius. LOL
