Christmas is coming...

...and my moms told me i have 550$ in gifts this year (Canadian$$). So I was wondering if I should get stuff I can install now, or more expensive things like rims or tires, which she could only get me like 2 or 3 of..

Here is what I WILL be putting on the truck at one point or another.

- Black heads/corners (that I could do myself... if I can do it in 1 day)

- Body lift

- Spare tire carrier like this that would mount in the bed. Jeep Wrangler Spare Tire Carrier 87-06 YJ TJ LJ on eBay.ca (item 150387419158 end time 08-Dec-09 2258 EST)

- Dick Cepek DC-1's (17 inch) that I would mount any type of tire for street use, and use my stockers for offroad...
or Cragar's (15x8) with MT's for offroad, and use my 16" stockers for street use

- 32 or 33 inch KM2's or MTZ's in 15" size, and get rims later on

- Pay my truck payment for 1 month so I don't have to stress out all the time with bills


Input is very appreciated and suggestions welcome

This is the best idea, but it's not as fun as the rest.

I would take the money for the payment. That is about 1 1/2 payments on mine. Although I do admit, mods are more fun.

I have used Christmas money to pay for bills, but it sucks.
I'm sure your mom would rather see you with something you can continue to enjoy.

The headlights I decided that I will do myself, so that's free. I wont ask for the BL or spare tire mount because 1) it's cheap and I can buy it myself 2) I cant put the BL on during winter and I don't have a nice enough spare for the carrier lol Also realized that having 2 sets of rims and tires is stupid.

SO it's either 15 or 16x10 Cragar soft 8's (or pro comps, whatever). These are the rims i'll take because I offroad too much to have a nice set of rims, rather have something innexpensive... 33" tires (would only get like 2)... Tool box for the back or truck payment, which is 545$... I checked my budget today and I make 450$ more than i spend a month, so i guess it's the new job stressing me out with payments..

No OHC for me, I had one but sold it cause I didnt really like the idea of cutting the liner in my '08 lol

Getting some KM2's or MTZ's was the first thing on my mind. And at the dealership I work at, 33x12.5R15 are 226$CAN, but I would have to get 15" rims, can't remember the price he gave me for 305/75R16's

I actually see some of the Canadian jeep that were on the big rock hill in the comp course where we took the pics
