Newer year front bumper, powerdome, clear corners, 01-05 style flares, tint, wheels and tires(or maybe just tires if you like your wheels), shackles and a t-bar crank. That would make it look great. For some more money you could do the bodylift then 33's and some new wheels and it would be even nicer looking.

BL. Paint wheels black. New headlights. 06+ emblems. paint valence black. night shade tails. tint. vent shades.

All can be done for way cheap. except the lift.

The rear bumper isn't perfect. The middle of the bumper looks like it's twisted upwards just a tad. I'd probably throw in some cash or get one off a truck in the JY. I only bought the truck because of the 4.0. I don't like chrome at all. The offer stands! My chrome for your black.

500 bucks will get you a body lift. but not bigger tires unless you find a good deal on some used tires.

^^Exactly! Why are people throwing out there tires?? Sure, in that budget you can get a BL and tint and maybe some bumper components, but certainly not also tire unless you get one hello of a score on tires...not to mention he'll need wheels for those probably 12.50 tires....



Here's what I suggest.... TINT(150 or so), paint the valence($5 can of color match paint + some sand paper + some build up primer @ $5 + clear @ $5), eBay for some good looking crystal clear corners and crystal clear headlamps($100), ditch the buggaurd($free!), paint your antenna($free!), then some 265/75R16's off craigslist to put on your existing wheels.
