Question original 94 tires- upgrades coming

I have a BFG baja mud terrain spare, that appears to be the original tire. can anyone confirm this ?

Also, freed up some cash for upgrades any suggestions where to start ?

She's all original equipment for now. Lift is out of the question, just barely make it in the garage with the roof rack. I keep the top off most of the summer so the garage is a must.

I'm thinking ; solid recovery points+equipment,hi-lift, tires, armor, lights,optima battery ..................??


any one have a supplier for front door soft windows, thought I saw them before but couldn't find the link.


Thanks gang,

JS

That was most likely the original spare, it's certainly what they came with. For upgrades, a good rule of thumb is making sure the truck can get off the trail before getting it to go further down the trail. By that I mean start with recovery gear, then get protection. Learn to wheel with it stock, and then start playing with suspension, tires, lockers, etc.

Hey Jon,

The Half-Door/Soft Windows are from Badger Coach Works. If you go through the specials, I think their link is posted there. As far as upgrades, I would try to wheel it like that first. Wheeling it stock would allow you to upgrade according to your driving style/skill or the terrain where you wheel all the time.

Recovery equipment and protection aren't really "upgrades" but a "must have" whenever you venture out. They will help you (and others) take you out of a jam safely and more efficiently and the extra protection will save you some $$$ when you accidentally hit something you're not supposed to. :D
