I just got a 2001 wrangler today, traded a 02 lancer for it. So stoked. Im looking to really turn this thing into a monster but its stock right now... Any suggestions for some basic parts to get me started?

How about a pic? Well first off I would ditch the milk jugs (rubber ends on the bumper). Depending on the rims you could try painting them black. A 2 inch BB (budget boost. Basically just a lift that uses spacers that go on the springs to give you hight.) just remember to get the front aligned if you do lift it a little. On a side note, once you start lifting her high, you have to start doing work to the drivetrain, control arms, track bars, sway bars, shocks, etc. But if you just buy a small spacer lift, you can get away with doing a lot less. Maybe get some shocks, and make sure you're bump stops work and an alignment.

Research to determine what you need. There are countless builds and forums out there to show what works and what doesn't.
What you need. That's the key to everything.

@srwatersh20 if yours is a se then we have the same one because i have a yellow 2001 wrangler se. What you did sounds pretty good so if i get spacers that will lift it an inch or two without paying thousands?
