list of mods

So if money was no object and you could build a "reasonably equipped" jeep how much could you spend? Reasonable = don't go crazy stupid with the $$$ just because you can, try to have a reason/usefulness for each part. This is what I came up with, of course you could add a supercharger to the Hemi and things like that but that would be crazy IMO. Have fun and post up a list. This list sits next to my actual list in my excel sheet...lol

$45,000 jeep
$20,000 TON'S
$18,000 HEMI
$6,000 5.5" LONG ARM
$3,500 roll cage
$2,000 beadlocks
$2,000 40's
$1,500 bumper & tire carrier
$1,500 winch
$1,000 flat fenders
$1,000 half doors
$1,000 OFFROAD HEROS SOFT TOP
$600 snorkel
$550 rock sliders
$525 front bumper
$450 cargo cover
$400 air compressor
$400 skid gas tank
$350 skid plate oil
$300 flashpaq
$250 hardtop insulation
$200 sector brace
$110 shade
$100 hi lift
$75 recovery gear
$70 slush mats

For that money, I wouldn't start with an operable JK. I'd just buy a frame and go from there.

Actually, that is exactly how much the jk sport owner paid me in fresh $100 bills about two weeks ago, I was amazed and he was extemely happy to take them home and show his wife her new rubicon wheels/tires.
