any tips or pics or steps on what to do. I have to do mine since its been about 5 years I figured it should get done.

I drive a tow truck. I break, I tow myself lol. But actually shes mechanically in great condition. Plus I dont drive her much.

8.8, and hp30's will be my projects for winter, when work slows down. S, o, not really in a rush to start those just yet. Especially since my buddy hasnt fully moved to his new house yet. Hes the one with the welder and stuff.

How about some lower control arms if you don't have some already.

Dixie horn would probably be too campy on the Jeep though, now maybe if I had a Charger....

Dixie horn, adj t-bar if you don't have, adj discos, off road lights, roof rack, doors to cut into half doors

if it was me though, i'd go with sliders and a high lift, even if no rocks, best jack place for a hi lift is a slider

Tracs bars are already adj. Have discos. Have a 34" LED light mounted to the bumper. Dont carry anything nor go far, so no real need for a roof rack, and I have tube doors for summer already lol

Sliders maybe I guess. You prove a good point.

Never can go wrong doing stuff like that with a kid. My daughter who is 23 and on her own asked me the other day to go fishing, and my mind flooded with good memories. We will go as soon as schedules will allow.

Got factory tow hooks. As well as a hook, and hitch for the rear.

Was thinking about buying the Rough Country winch plate. Then a winch next week maybe. Use it to build a front bumper off of. Truck Pro USA has it for 230, with free shipping, so maybe.
