For a while now I had been trying to decide on whether to buy an older jeep for a fishing vehicle(beach) or just mod out my JK for beach driving. I know my JK is very capable of getting me to my regular fishing spots, but I'm wanting get out a little further.
Well, last night after looking at $4,500 to $7,000 jeeps on craigslist, I decided to spend that money on my JK. I was hoping for some feedback on a few things I'm looking at.
First thing is a bumper. I'm looking for a stubby FRONT bumper that has a receiver hitch so I can mount a rod holder or a winch when I need too. I would also want it to have holes for my factory fog lights. So far the only one I've come across is from olympic.
The next thing I'm looking for is a winch. Not sure which one I need. Something strong enough but not overkill. I'll also be looking for an anchor or something I can bury to use as my anchor point if I can't find help. Also wanting a winch plate that hooks up to the receiver. Being able to mount a winch to the front or rear bumper seems really helpful. Anyone have any experience doing this?
Lifts and leveling kits....do I really need a lift? how high without voiding warranties and making my 34's look small, and which leveling kit if my jeeps sags from the weight of the new front bumper.
Already have the tires, kayak rack, shovels, extra floor mats, and bucket. I have a tow strap too, but I'm also looking for a recovery strap.
I think thats it for starters. Any advice or other things I might need would really be helpful. Thanks!!!
