    HELP ME BUILD MY JEEP! lots of questions????

    I have a 2004 LJ with 201k. My wife says she drives it to the gym twice a week but i thing she is going to Dougs. It pretty much just sits around the house, in the front yard or driveway. My wife drove it up Lower terminator on sunday and it did good. I just have a few questions about building it going forward. it is currently lifted on 35s with 4.88 gears. I'm not sure what kind of lift it is I just got all the parts from a few different friends and put them on.
    so here are my questions.

    How big of tires can I run on the stock axles?

    Do you think I need lockers? if so should I put one in the front or the rear? what kind of locker?

    what kind of lights should I get? Im pretty sure I am going to need a lot of them, just looking for recommendations.

    I see lots of jeeps at the mall with cool grilles and hood vents, do i need these to help keep the engine cool?

    If I get a long arm will it go faster?

    i was gonna get a hand held Cb can anyone recommend one?

    who is the best lift shop?

    I am only running 15" wheels, I see lots of jeeps with 20s, do I need bigger wheels?

    I heard the Jk is the best jeep, am I crazy to do this to my LJ?

    my friend said If I do all of this stuff am I gonna get the death wobble, how do i fix that?

    I know this is a lot of questions, maybe there are a few other things I forgot. Can you guys can help me if I forgot anything, thanks!!

    I like to party
