build thread...

Well i was gonna start . Build on recent zj purchase, 3 weeks ago.

I was going to lift it and customize it, until Going for a for Mkay brakes to up start smoking.

Let it cool down some and drove her home. So before i can do any of my plans i need new brakes and lines front and back.

After that lift paint and stuff ike headlights/offroad lights.

Just spent 1,000$ on parts the last couple days...

Got everything to finish the engine tuneup including belt and pulleys. Also rms and oil pan gasket...

Got tranny filter and fluid

Got axle gaskets and fluid

Got everything to do the brakes front and back (hoses, calipers, pads, rotors, drums, shoes, spring kit)

Ordered a 45,000v coil and 8mm thick wires that are 10mm because of the extra insulation..

Got caliper paint, cleaner and brushes for iac.

Have a can of bedliner for bumpers and rockers need a few more.

Getting the iron man off road? Motor mounts and a tranny mount. Going through farmer johnson off road...

For tires im going to end up going federal couragia mt.. can get them for 130ea. And shipping is free im pretty sure.

Future plans:

-Headlights
-Tailights
-kick a** stereo system
-Exhaust

-Rear bumper
-Roof rack soon
-dick cepek rims
-Light bar
