2012 unlimited build

okay so I outgrew my budget boost and I am having the following installed on my rig next week, (unless you guys have better suggestions) PLEASE WEIGH IN ON THESE UPGRADES!

I just installed P305/75/r17 dynapro atm's (which I love)

Adding a rock krawler 2.5 flex and ditching the budget boost.
rugged ridge xhd modular front bumper with winch mount, storage ends and hoop
rugged ridge extreme heavy duty rear bumper
evap relocation
poison spyder diff covers front and rear
12,500lb warn winch with synthetic cable

Any other thoughts? This will be a trail rig second and a daily driver 1st.

I would most likely stay away from the Rugged Ridge crap. Poison Spider makes some nice bumpers and aren't really that expensive. Most people that buy cheaper in the beginning and upgrade end up spending more in the end. Do it right the first time and you will be much happier. What are your major goals for your Jeep?

I had a Rugged Ridge bumper. Didn't regret the buy. Under $400 fit the first time and has a sunk in winch mount, finished in thick black textured powder coat.

I think Rugged Ridge is decent for what it is. However, I would choose a JCR bumper over a PSC.

seems like the ps stuff all has to be finished...that adds up quick. I like the idea of the modular bumper the storage ends are cool

also my plans for the jeep are to be able to wheel on decent trails, some rocks (as i live in sw mo) and be a good daily driver. I want to be capable but comfortable and I don't want to tear shit up real bad...Oh and btw I have some rubicon sliders on it now as well
