Here's what I have:

2000 sport
4.0 auto
Dana 35
31" tires

Here's my issue:

My jeep looks like a baby!!!
I am trying to stay away from a lift for these reasons:
I'm short....I have a hard enough time getting in her as it is
I only take her in mud and mild woods...will not be rock crawling or heavy off roading
I just bought the 31" tires last May and only have about 1,000 miles on them.

That being said......what can I do to make her look a little more aggressive?

I am gonna paint the raised section in the middle of the hood flat black soon

Turn the whitewalls in....take the top and doors off...
Aggressive is done by doing those things you don't want to do, lift and bigger tires.

I suppose you could mount a .50 cal in the back...that should probably do it lol!

Nice looking jeep btw

I debated on the whitewalls for 2 days before having them mounted!
The top and doors will come off as soon as PA thaws out
So, if I go for a lift.....Id have to go with bigger tires, right? What about the Dana 35?

Oh and guns scare the crap outta me....I'll pass on that one

It looks nice. I would run it the way it is and call it good.

lol just some humor. I wouldn't worry about the D35 until you start doing some serious offroading. Sounds like you'll be puddle jumping and hitting some mild trails.

You could put a 2" budget boost in that would help. Not sure how that would look with 31's. It's a cheap alternative to a full suspension lift that still gives your jeep a new look.

Thanks Doc....I've done the cosmetic stuff (bed lined fender flares, rims, etc). Going to bedline the grill next month.

If I go for the BB, is there anything else I need to go along with that? I've been reading the threads regarding lifts, and my brain hurts!

I just did my grill 20 mins ago.

As far a bb it all depends. That's what I have. I have 2" bb and didn't need anything else. Just the spacers,shocks and bumpstops extensions.

Every jeep is different. You might need to lower transfer case if you get vibes. I didn't.

Bumpers and additional lights will make it look tougher.

Grill looks great!

What size tires are those?

I see you cut your fender flares.....I was thinking of that too.

Go to your local weld shop. Two custom bumpers should be under $200 as long as you measure and have plans drawn up. I had a temporary rear bumper welded up for $55 and it looked pretty bad-ass, just took some c-channel. You could have a piece of pipe bent and welded on as a stinger for like $50, and to add effect you could weld different gussets onto it.
