I would start with recovery gear since you don't really have alot of money to spend all at once

Recovery gear, and then maybe a CB. Grab handles are really going to be handy when you put a lift on your Jeep.

as stated, recovery gear is a must.

Did your X come with hooks front & rear? If not, that should be your first priority. Keep an eye out and you can pick up a front bumper (with hooks) cheap from someone that installed an aftermarket bumper. Or just buy some stock hooks and cut the necessary hole in the bumper.

If you do already have hooks, then get a strap.

My next suggestion would be some JKS Quick Disconnects. I disconnected mine with the stock links a few times, and realized what a huge PITA it is to do. Didn't take me long to realize the benefit of spending the dollars on the quick disconnects.

I SUGGEST buying beer and strippers for each trail run, with these essintials you could concievably run the rubicon in a powder blue prius because EVERYOne is going to help you........and mudhound will do anything for you

to maximize your mod money, first decide what you want to do and where you want to end up. plan out the supporting mods too. don't try to go to 37s and not have $$ for gears and such.

since you are on a small budget, you are gonna be a bit limited.

i would do the rear shock bracket relocate ($125)
grab handles ($40)
stubbify your front & rear bumper (free)
paint your A/C rings ($12)
custom grill mod ( less than $60)
1.5" spider trax Wheel spacers (can be found used for about $100)
replace soundbar speakers ($70 ebay)
make sidemarkers blink with turn signals ( less than $5)


i am sure there are more, this is off the top of my head...

grab handles......oh yeah you need those you might be able to do a 5 diamond trail if you had a set!!!!!!

paint your A/C ring...........WTF is this really a mod? hell if so add a bunch of stickers from the truch stop 20 bucks for 20 sticker = 20 mods oh yeah you go boy

Custom grill mod..........you have got to be kidding me did you buy a Jeep or a ghetto ride?

Replace speakers....come on if you are gonna waist mod money on that you'd be better off getting some real boom boom

make side marker blink........WTF is that shit? yes so when you are off road the guy wheelin behind you will know for sure that you took the trail to the left and not the one to the right


Look buy a
good Strap....35.oo
a CB.......... 50.00 to 75.00
quick Discos.......100.00

and a 2 in BB........cheapest on skyjacker 150.00

DOOOED................we be mall crawlin

i dont even know how to properly flame that post..........

painted a/c rings???? speakers?????? blinky turn signal stuff?????? seriously WTF.........i am revoking you man card jk-freddo, uhh, i mean jk-nancy-boy

maybe your the one that needs the blue prius from the other thread......

i think everybody should go hang with some real wheelers and listen to all the jk jokes out there, i have never in my life heard so many folks rag on a certian vehicle............and that mod list is why they rag on us

for the record.......painting your a/c rings is NOT a mod!!!!

inserting your garage door opener under your roll bar padding is NOT a mod!!!


and if ya want 37's do it.......rip the fenders off...slap some big tires on it and wheel.......its your jeep do what you want.

if its a rubi, most of the cheep modsjust wont help, you could start buying parts and pieces for a bastard lift kit, maybe some 34in ltb's ....bout 150 each ..buy em one at a time and she wont notice......or you could do what i do and just buy it and tell her im sorry , it was on sale, deal of a lifetime........just like she does when she goes to the mall

Ok, so I have learned that:
get a strap
get a CB
get quick discos
and a BB.....
OR
paint anything that isn't green, get some big speakers, and look for the biggest, badass curb at the mall and make all the teenage girls squeal... cheerleader

woah, woah, woah

he was looking for things UNDER $100. i never claimed they were offroad mods. they are just small things to do while you are waiting to get some bigger stuff. little things that are easy to do and give you a chance to personalize your Jeep.

i didn't mention CB because it had been said. the quick discos... i never thought of that since they were part of my lift kit. the custom grill is the mesh that helps keep rocks from hitting your radiator - not for bling, but for functionality.

a strap - is that really a mod? necessary - yeah.. a mod.. no.

why do a budget boost when he will be able to get a real lift after the trip?

i would like to request my "MAN CARD" back. If you look at the other cars I have owned and been around my previous forums, you will see that i am worthy.

Is it just me or do I detect a little of this from Geo's direction:



Sorry.... couldn't help it.

Mac - the trip to Ireland is gonna kick ass! I have folks in Northern Ireland... rent a Jeep and take the top off!!! Or rent a motorcycle!!!

Anyway , I was on a serious budget when I got mine waaay back in November.... I got the recovery gear and a CB first then knew that I wanted a front bumper and a winch - everything else (except for food and bills) was second to my bumper.... next was the sliders (trust me on this one)... next the rear bump.... next is skids etc..... I have a jeep fund where I rat hole money, it seems to get spent faster than I can save it. I did make $1400 selling stuff on Craigslist in a little over two weeks....

you have a rubi so you are already ahead... work out a budget and make a list of what YOU want. The time will go by faster than you think.
