Finally got both federal and state tax returns, and those plus an extra $550 gives me about $2400 to spend on upgrades. So, looking at:

1: Four-Real Steel Front Bumper w/ Winch Mount

2: Four-Real Steel Rear Bumper w/ 2" receiver hitch

3: Four-Real Steel Tire Carrier

4: A GOOD winch (hadn't made up my mind on this one yet, looks to be a Warn product at least...)

I'm also waiting on word from Vic on what he's found for skid plates at his local bone-yard to armor up the underside of the Jeep. I may switch from the rear bumper to Four-Real Steel's Roof Rack w/ tire carrier, but I like the option of the receiver hitch and other possible stuff like Jerry cans, so long as it doesn't block my view too much. Any ideas would be appreciated. Mr. Green

Awesome. I just called Anthony at Swiss Mtn 4x4 and left a message to call me back about the winch and whether or not he can get me that bumper. Hopefully he'll call today... dancing banana dancing banana dancing banana

Well, things are looking good. They can give me a great price on the winch and front bumper, but can't order the rear bumper right now because Daystar/Four-Real is redesigning it. So, I'll end up getting the roof rack and tire mount for now, and eventually will get the rear bumper later on. Since the roof rack will have multiple uses later on, like a place for the Hi-Lift jack and an array of Wal-Mart lights on it rofl , I feel justified getting it now. I can always remove the tire mount and relocate the tire to the rear bumper when I get one.

Warn 9.5ti + F/R Front Bumper + F/R Roof Rack w/ tire mount, aluminum panels, and base = $1900 give-or-take.
