www.4wd.com has a bunch of replacement parts. I don't know about painting the top, but if you are getting automotive paint then it should work for both I suggest Dupont mid-level paint and they have a clear coat that is super scratch resistant. It is used on carnival rides where people walk on it and on big construction rigs like Caterpillars and such, but if you have runs in the clear they are a pain in the A** to get out cause the clear is so hard.

4 Wheel Drive Hardware(sight listed above) is a good place for a inexpensive lift the have their own, or shop around on here and various other forums. Check ebay too, though I would only look for new ones on there. This is a good lift from what my friend said, he got it a while back.


I Don't know of any free mods that will improve your 2.5, but that is how efi is. there are some stuff that you can bolt on that'll help but not hugely.

Look at 4wd hardware for the bull bars they have I really like a smittybuilt they have, but they have some less expensive things there. I don't think that the cheapest light are really a good idea, but autozone and wal-mart have really cheap lights. I would ebay some 100watt KC or similar.

a couple of answers

i'v heard and am going to do this myself..krylon fusion, is the way to go on the hard top, i have seen pics and they all seemed to come out nice..for the tub interior, i used hurkuliner..it came out great..as far as bang for the buck lifts..a body lift is the cheapest, but highly not recomended for over a 1" lift. longer shackles will raise it a bit, but i wouldn't recomend more than a 3/4 lift..it is best to save up, a four inch lift , will also need a few extras to think about, drive line, slip yoke elimination, etc..but in the long run, it is the best way to go, some of the smaller lifts 2.5, are easier to do..as far as free mods, there are lots, but 'free' is a loaded word, it's best to think 'under a hundred' jc whitney, qudra trac and 4wd hardware are all good recources for parts, oem and other, also the dealership has many and also look into criags list, lots of stuff there..good luck on your jeep..build it to be un-breakable, then go out and break it~fly
