Help me spend my money!
Ok this ought to be fun! I just sold my CJ and my wife aggread to let me spend about $500 for fun stuff on my 99 TJ. The problem is what to get?
1. Wench but Ive been told that I would need a dual batt and high output alt.
2. Lift but with all the extra (slip yoke eleminator) and new drive shafts
4. line-ex the tub
5. I just dont know?
A about my TJ, it is a 99 with a 2.5 and 5 speed trany, soft top and 1/2 doors. It has 30x9.5 Goodyear Mts. I dont care for the rims but they are true and look ok. it only has 43K for miles and runs out good. I do use this as my DD. I did take it to Moab and the it seemed to have enough clearence (though I had to stack a few more rocks than the other guys). I dont plan on much more than 31" tires, I am learly of lockers in my stock axles (30 & 35), or would they hold up to the abuse of trail rides and DD with 31s on it. Or do I need to just get Dana 44s.
I also have a custom rear bumper and hi-lift, along with various tools, a CO2 bottle for tires and a fire extingher.
My goals is to make the jeep more capable, safer, last longer and look better.
So have fun with this one and tell me how to spend my $500 mad jeep cash!
