Ok, So I have already spoken to what I am going to do to the jeep in the future. What I want to do right now is, starting doing little things to it.

I was thinking of redoing the brackets on the axles front and rear, maybe an outboard, front shock towers, truss the d44 in the front. I don't want to to put too much money in the axles since they already have 4.88's, stock lockers, chromo shafts front and rear. I thought about going ahead and getting my mid arms built and getting a new belly pan. though about buying all the brackets I would need first to set it up though. Buy the small stuff first that does not take up too much room, then when all ready to do the swap I get the bigger pieces at that time. What do ya think?

Thinking of doing before summer this year,
1. Front truss
2. upgraded radiator(worth it?)
3. upgraded starter/alt(worth it?)
4. currie AR in front
5. upgraded MCAI(3rd gen here)
6. Skinny pedal taillights
7. skinny pedal rock lights(upgrade from tantrum)
8. anything else

Can I get a seed from your money tree? :D


-The starter I would not worry about but the alternator would be a good idea if you run a lot of electronics, a electronic winch and/or a welder.
-If you go with an aftermarket radiator, which I really want to do when the plastic end caps on mine leaks, look at the 3 core systems.
-MCAI is great. just do it.
-I have the minime lights and just need to install them. Just one is bright enough to light the basement's steps.

Thinking of doing before summer this year,
1. Front truss Skip the truss. If you plan to get rid of your axles, don't put any more money into them. If you plan to keep the axle forever, go for the truss.
2. upgraded radiator(worth it?) Only if you wheel in a hot environment or your current radiator is leaking.
3. upgraded starter/alt(worth it?)Why? Your premier welder should have came with one.
4. currie AR in front Should be first on your list.
5. upgraded MCAI(3rd gen here)
6. Skinny pedal taillights If you plan to wheel in rocks, these would tuck closer to the body and be worth it.
7. skinny pedal rock lights(upgrade from tantrum) This should be second on your list. Go for the Eon's.
8. anything else
It depends on what your looking for. I would add the GenRight/PP outboard kit to 3rd on your list. After that, I would do a tummy tuck and then look at your suspension/steering. Skip the worthless stuff, and go for performance. :D
