What you are missing (or isn't obvious in this post) is direction; what you are trying to accomplish. Are you going for an aesthetic mall crawler or serious rock crawler?

I live in the country. No malls within about 1 1/2 hrs or so. Closest one is Mid Rivers Mall and there is a jeep club there. I drive the back roads to work, which are about 1/2 gravel. Go offroading at any oppurtunity I can. Which where I live are dried creek beds, woods, good hills, pretty much anything but rock crawling.

My friends own samurais, bronco II's, and some have dedicated offroading rigs. We all have atvs, and just like getting in the woods. I am close tk Hannibal Rocks and Potawatomi. I may try my hand at some rock crawling, but nothing really hard core.

I have bottomed it out already so that is why I am looking at lift, and sliders (probably need some skids). Stock tires are junk , 3 flats in 3500 miles. Live in highly populated deer country so would like more front protection.

That should give a little better back ground on me.

I like that wheel choice, but you have be careful around here when you mention chrome. From what I have been reading, the choice of wheel is black by about 50 to 1.

Myself? I think the black has certainly been played out. There are a handful that I would choose, but most look like an old steel wheel out of Grandpa's garage smothered in rustoleum black.

Have you considered an AEV front bumper and skid plate with Warn 9500cti? It does the job and looks the part.

I think you have everything I would consider essential. Might need a regear with the 35s.

I am pretty set on the zeon. And I hear you on the black rims, I think they lokk like the steel wheel growing up on the farm. Nothing I would want to see on my vehicle.

So I guess on the first jeep I will ever be modifying I have came up with a perfect setup that no one can improve on.

I find that very hard to believe.

I am going to start ordering parts if nobody has any other suggestions.

I've heard shrockworks can take crazy long to get items out, so you might want to investigate that.

I don't think that it's that there's no room for improvement, it's just that you've described a fine start to a build. I mean you should probably look into a CB, pulling the carpets, some skids, etc., but what you've got sounds like a good start to me.
