Default money to spend

I currently have an unexpected 700 so obviously the responsible thing to do is to put it into my jeep. What would be the best thing to spend it on? Winch bumper? Control arm drop brackets ? Assault rifle mounted on jeep?

What do you currently have on your Jeep? Steel to build bumpers and a winch sound like a great idea to me!

Cold air intake that goes to the firewall area near the windshield, check whole exhaust, winch bumper, new tires, frame stiffeners, get an alignment, recovery points, new hatch supports, rocker fix, welder, donate money to me
Buy me Cherokee forum stickers


I know where you can find a m60 airsoft gun for $350, spend the rest on cutting a hole and making a turret on top of the jeep

obviously !

But if your Jeep needs some maintenance then no time like the present w/ $ in hand.

The rest, I say fill the tank and take a nice drive to no where and back.

I'd say just hold onto your money for when you break something. You got a capable rig go wheel it!

Or spend the 700 on w trip!

Do you not have rock sliders yet? Recovery points? Front locker?
I'd buy bigger tires
