That is very tempting! If no one else has any better ideas I'll do that.

These or some skid plates. I see you've got 37s so the above might be better than my suggestion.

The main reason that i would do c's and gussets 1st is because once they are bent....well. no way to fix. you can skid plate it anytime down the road- but i would also look into c's and sleeves. Not a pretty mod- but def a worth-while one.

Im saving for some dana60's so my axels are fine for now. I was looking at some PSC crusher corners but I think they will be way over $500 with lights and shipping but thats what im shooting for.

X 2 on the winch. Definitely worth it's weight in gold when you're in a tough spot.

Did you do anything with your steering? HD Tie Rod, Drag link flip, adj. track bar, track bar brace (axle and frame side, front and rear),

How about the dual aeroforce interceptor gauges? I really like mine.

I'm not sure how much night driving you do but another worthwhile mod would be to scrap the POS stock headlamps and get something like Hella E Codes with upgraded bulbs. Susquehanna motorsports has a good kit with the lenses, bulbs and wiring for about $200.

I think I have decided to go with a benchmark dual battery kit (stage 1), Two 7 inch hidx lights, and a poison spyder roller fairlead light mount and windshiend decal. All of that total with shipping is $486.48. Just under my $500 budget

Good call I guess, but I was thinking $500 bucks would go a long way with hooker, a motel room for the weekend and a lot of booze.....but that's just me.

Even if you plan on replacing the axles, if you bend your shit in the meantime, that will suck. I'd do the Teraflex sleeves and gussets for $150, find someone to weld them up for you, go a Smittybilt or Rugged Ridge 8500i winch for $300 shipped (Amazon), and spend the rest on pizza and beer for your the install party.
