George's polished turd build

So I've got the wheels turning on my upgrades/fixes. Pictures are coming Friday of the before and the start of the process. No this isn't hardcore, I'm keeping this a my DD for now, but once I can, I will get a little crazier with it. As of now, my plans are as follows:
1: Axle Swap as my stock dana 35 is threatening to grenade on me
2: Replacing my front U-joints that are worn to hell and back
3: New liftgate to replace the rusty one I have
4: New Tires
5: New headlights and tails
6: Fix my exhaust. Need a new cat, need to shorten and weld my exhaust after a less than stellar repair to pass inspection last year
7: Possible T-case and transmission work
8: OME Lift kit
9: New front winch bumper and rear bumper and tire carrier
10: Various other offroading upgrades (sliders, tow points, etc)
11: New paint scheme. As of right now I plan on doing a matte or satin black with silver (anti chrome) accenting.
12: Debadge
13: Fog lights, top light bar. Yes, I really do love lamp. In the words of a friend, "It'll be a driving sun"
