My daughter turned sixteen, I found this '01 2dr with only 80,000 miles on it. Looks great stock, but I'd like to do the following:

Rhino liner or lineX for the roof..the paint is in bad shape on the roof. Need to stop the rust.
31x10.50s
Rims ??
OME 1.5" lift
If tires rub will add coil spacers and shackles
Front winch bumper with winch
Rear bumper

Got the rust off the roof and covered with LineX bed liner. No worries about canoes or gear sliding or scratching up the top.

Got some free 31x10.50s from my brother who put 33x12.50s on his wrangler.
They rub a bit on sharp turns. Not bad, I expected that, but I ws surprised they fit without a lift. No off roading till lift is installed. I'm sure I'll tear them up with ANY flex.
It's okay though, remember this is my daughters daily driver.

Sold the rims and little stock tires for $80.00
Daughter left lights on and drained the four year old battery to its DEATH!
Used the tire money tht I was gonna give to her to offset cost of new battery. Next plan is to order OME lift.

It's a 2dr 4wd auto. As for roof rack, I realized that it was backwards after tightening last bolt. I'll spin it around this weekend. Thanks for bringing it to everyone attention. LOL

When ordering my lift from DPG I learned that I have the Chrysler 8 1/4" rear end. I guess that's a good thing.

Thanks, it's my favorite and most expensive mod(till the lift shows up). It stopped the rust and paint peel, and now I can throw all kinds of gear up top without worrying about damage or sliding around.
