Default My First jeep

So I just got a 1999 jeep Cherokee as my first car. I'm slowly but surely doing all the upgrades that I have in mind. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what improvements I should make. It came with a ARB brush guard, which I have already mounted a 13 inch LED light bar and two LED light cubes too.

Also I've updated the stock radio to a pioneer radio. It has a 3 inch lift and a camo interior roof. I have a list of other things I want to do but I wanted to see what other people thought.

Here's a list of what I plan on adding, in no particular order
•Mat black bolt brush whackers
•Safari top
•40-50 inch LED light bar mounted to Safari rack
•floor mats Updated Speakers
•Sub & Sub conceal box
•Winch ( any recommendations on poundage?)
•Snorkel
•Nerf bar

Also considering having the whole paint job rhino lined. But I was wondering if anyone had pictures of a Jeep Cherokee already done that way. Also was looking for an estimated price on the cost of having it done

Default Lots of work done
























Covered my 10 inch radio antenna with a old arrow, many have asked me if my radio now had more static but it works just as well as it did before



Updated the factory limited radio with a pioneer radio from Crutchfield



Also updated my speaker system from Crutchfield with four new Kenwood



Started working on my LED set up but more on that later



Broke her in with her first real Georgia mud



And washed her off in the flint river swap



But of course this cost me my alternator



Build a custom top rack with my neighbor who's a pro welder and the owner of the metal deck decor company called mode hook



Turned out awesome and superheavy duty, spans my entire roof



Put a thin bedliner on it



And added the light bar, plan to place two cubes on either side of it facing slightly outward



Coming up on one year and this is her now

Honestly not sure if any jeep is ever truly done ha ha, I still have a whole list of things I plan on doing. Since I'm in high school still I don't get to take her wheeling much but every time I do she performs great! Between the four-wheel-drive and the brand-new mud tires the previous owner put on her I've only managed to get her stuck once

And on the road, besides a popping noise that randomly occurs, the only thing I wish was better was the mpg, but I mean so does every jeep owner who lifts and beefs up their rig
