I agree with the others. It sounds like a test drive of both cars is in order. Let her experience first-hand just how bad the visibility is out of a cama-row.

I don't know if this applies to you...

Having just installed my UCA, I wouldn't bother with changing the axle bushing. It will make enough of a difference with the stock rubber there that you will be happy. However, I would spend the...

Lowering springs and Koni Shocks. STR.T's (orange) are great DD shocks and greatly improve over stock. You could go with yellows and have adjustability, but taht sounds like overkill for a DD.

500 RWHP would be damn near impossible to get N/A from a stock coyote. Most guys who shoot for those levels just go big with FI. There was a thread on this site a little while back about getting...

I did misread the original post. I understand now. 9.5" is the most common width in a 19" wheel that's why I recommended that. At least from the wheel/tire combos that I have been viewing. IMO,...

Forget about the CJ manifold. Skip straight to the headers + x-pipe. Your set-up will benefit more from the addition of headers, and if you do go FI in the future the car will REALLY wake up. CJ...

It sounds like you should just stick to an axle back exhaust. Axleback won't add any additional HP, but you can get that with other bolt-ons. Plus, axleback is easy to change and makes a big impact...

Yeah, and I have no oil spots on the ground. I still need to get under the car and really look around, but I am highly doubting that it is oil on the clutch. Especially since it only occurs after a...

I would have no worries about the car with only a 1/2 mile dirt road. You will be driving it at slow speeds (I hope), and you will also learn every bump, hole, and divot that is there and just drive...

It sounds like you have a good plan, and a great second vehicle! My 2nd vehicle is a '96 bronco and I'll be driving that a lot more now that its winter. Let us know what you end up buying.

I would change all 4 wheels if I were you. You might think that the OEM style wheels look the same, but they are likely to be a different shade and will not match the fronts.

Does clutch chatter mean that it is close to being completely worn out, or could it just be glazed?

Regardless of whether you NEED a tune or not. You should get a tune. You won't see hardly any performance benefits without the tune so there would be no point to upgrade without it.

Yes, to the adjustable UCA. LCA and relocation brackets are personal preference, but based on your list and what you are doing they will only have positive effects on the car.
