Hey CF, i posted a thread a few months back about the best mods for a xj under $10000 and i got a heap of responses and i have finally made my choices.

What i have:
ARB Old Man Emu 2.5" Lift (Heavy Duty Pack)
1.5" TC Spacer
28" Goodyear Wrangler MT/R
ARB Front Bumper
GME UHF Radio
K&N Air Filter (Came with the Jeep)

To do:
2" Front Spacer
1.5" Rear Shackle Lift
Shackle Relocation Bracket
Snorkel
Tigerz11 Roof Rack
Tigerz11 Side Awning
Tigerz11 9000lb Grande Winch
33x10.5r15 BFG KM2
Custom Fabricated Rear Bumper w/tire carrier
Custom Rear Storage Box
Waeco 50L Fridge

All the new mods come to around AUD$3600

Tigerz11 is an Australian company that has great products for pretty good prices.
Here are some pics of what it currently looks like

Not bad. Sounds like your getting it done. I know there are different challenges for Aussies to get parts and such and prices aren't exactly the same (the exchange rate is about the same...$3800 in USD).

Other than the pics you have, done any adventures/roading/trails yet?

You might want to look into upgrading your stock headlights. There is a thread about Truck Lite LEDs. That what I'm gonna get eventually.

Well it used to be my dads, so we've taken it on alot of trips and trails. It has really surprised me at how much it can do with just a 2" lift and mud tires. We put the jeep places that guys with rubicon JK's and 35's couldnt go because they were too big and wide, it has been a really great 4wd so i just want to make it alittle bit more reliable and comfortable
And as for the availablility, i have found that ebay has alot of rough country products and there are only a few local manufacturers. It was going to be $300 for a budget boost from the states and then a further $500 to ship to Australia... Ridiculous!!! i think that was BDS or Terraflex btw.

I have a YouTube channel aswell. So far i only have 1 video of the jeep but more will be coming as the mods get done
Check it out

Here is another video of the jeep. A guy in our Jeep club posted it.
This is one of the tracks that the JK's weren't too keen on haha
