Hey kids. Do you like Primus?

Wait no.

Ok, as you may or may not know, I drive a 1995 teal YJ known to about 4 people as "The Trojan". It has...

Lift
-SOA w/ RE stock replacement leaves (~5.5" total lift)
-Skyjacker Nitrogen shocks

Drivetrain
-NV3550 ('02 TJ, less than 25k on it)
-SYE with beefy, fully splined tail shaft NV321
-Tom Woods HD CV driveshaft
-Chrysler 8.25 w/ 4.56 gears and EZ locker (ring on gears has a sheared tooth)
-One beefy a$$ Cam-fab traction bar
-stock D30 front w/ 4.56 gears (R&P currently shot)
-"35 MT/R's

Misc
-140a Dodge alternator (reccomend for anyone with a Jeep)
-completely rewired dash
-Bright Box'd headlights
-hard top
-full hard doors

My question to you: what would you do next on a fairly limited budget? Some things to keep in mind: I am very nearly broke, but spend every extra dime on this vehicle, so try to keep the mods within the $300 range; also, this is my DD, if it prevents it from highwaying safely, it's not doable.

Immediately in the running are

-Rhino-line the interior
-rocklights (I already have the holes drilled on the body mounts, just need to buy the lights. I'm so broke)
-rebuild/replace the front (seals, gears, locker)
-replace vaccum disco with solid shaft/cable
-full cage

So what would you do? Most pressing is the front gear set, but should I just replace the R&P or get a loaded case or bypass the middleman and get a locker to replace the spiders? And if a locker, what would have nice road manners? I'd like an ARB, but if a lunchbox will do ok, I'd love to save myself $300.

Things that I think that suck so don't even bother:

-light bars (super-gay)
-bumpers (not gay, but not enough bang:buck ratio)
-boat sides (I'm not that hardcore)
-rock sliders (I'm not buying them and I don't have a welder/materials to make my own, so that's not doable right now)

So, thoughts? Suggestions? Kittens?

--Hardy :D:

I know you said you dont think rock sliders are necessary but I think they are one of the most important things to have on the trail. Other then that get a full cage :bigthumb:

Nope, that's pretty much the only one you can actually see...and not even well at that. Pretty sure once I broke my {expletive}, I just gave up and started drinking heavily
