Default MC Hammer tj

well as some of you know i got in an accident leaving the blessing in my tj.

what the jeep has done to it
-32 11.5 15 bfg mt's on steel d windows
-2.5 inch rough country progressive spring lift
-front bumper from tab
-mile marker winch

what it needs to run again
-front axle
-front control arms
-1 new tire (dropped it off today so that is pretty much done)
-steering gear box (i have one just have to install it)

purchases so far
-front d30
-4:10 gears to mach front axle
-d35 detroit locker
-new 32" bfg mud terrain
-rough country long arm kit
-one inch motor mount lift
-antirock front sway bar
-1 3/4 die for bender
-1 1/4 die for bender


the insurance company gave me 3300 dollars for the damages. i really dont want to go with bigger lift or tires at this time since i am planning on putting d60's and 39.5's on it with some stretch at some point in the future.

so i need some advise on spending the rest of my money! i am thinking about gears and lockers for my axles to get me by til i get everything ready to go big! what the hell should i buy?

Pay off debt? Put it towards mortgage? Or the always reliable hookers and booze option.

for your tube fenders: I would say 1". I thought it sounded a little small, but it looks proportionate.

for the front axle: shop around for one all ready built decent. so many people upgrade TJ 30's just to decide to go for a larger axle. you can usually find them pretty cheap.

then find a set of stock control arms, and your good to go.

my tire and fender took the impact, the bumper didnt even get a scratch on it i think it would have wrecked her jeep though! how much will you do a rear bumper with a swingout tire carrier and a 2" receiver on it for? something sexy that will match the front one

if your staying close to stock go with an 8.8 and high pinion 30. lockers in both. 33's to 35's max. roll cage. winch. belly up skid. slip yoke eleminator.

that should spend your money and get you set up well enough till your 1tons are done.

I am getting the dies to do the cage, I pmed ironman today about the rough country long arm conversion kit, that way I will just use my own springs and shocks and when I install that I am going to do a new skid pan, I am hoping to find a easy way to get my t case up out of the way, I need to see if I can get a clocking kit for it.
