Bingo that's the cheapest route. Remember you will prob only get 50% back on your mods so you stand to lose a good deal of money on switching to a 2012

You can find a motor for less than $1000 and 35s won't be more than $1500 on the high side.

Don't skew the numbers to make a $50K Jeep fit the budget.
