    Default All around mod advice

    Okay jeep peeps here's the deal...HH6 gave me the north-south to do some mods on the 03 X (4.0 I6 5S). I need your inputs on what you would do to the below with $2 grand. Tell me what you would do to it if it were yours. THANKS!

    So far I have:
    BFG 33s (outright hatin the wheels and prefer to go black)
    3 inch Rusty's suspension (lookin to do body as well)
    discos
    K&N air
    Raingler full net system
    CB (but no ant. yet)

    BTW, Im more into mud and dirt than rocks if that helps in choices.

    I'd vote on a winch, mml, or belly skid.
    Since you like playing in the mud, i'd get spare u joints, axle seals, centering balls.
    And you can always take a can of black wheel paint to the wheels.

    I would definitely swap the bumper front and rear... with a winch on the front. Half doors, or bar doors would be cool. On board air would also be high on my list.

    I would try to lind if you can powder coat the wheels...

    Set up for dirt and Muck: Black Steelies, 35" SWAMPERS (with the body lift, they work well) and 4:88's. If you can swing it, a lock-rite out back. Sell the wheels and MTR's and get some other sort of rockers, maybe body mounted ones.

    EDIT: Don't know but if you have the D-35 axle in back, do the Superior upgrade kit for it and the gears. SWAMPERS will kill the stock 35's shafts. Plus the gears will make it feel like it gained 100 ponies under the hood.
