Is your Jeep "done"?

I know that there's always more to do, and I've got my eye on a few mechanical upgrades, but for all intensive purposes, my build is "done." Wondering who else has reached nirvana with their Wrangler?

Please allow me to present my 1987 4.2L maroon on spice Wrangler. OME 2.5" lift. 1.5" body lift. 31x10.5x15 Yokohama Geolander AT/S. Custom front/rear tube bumpers. Front/rear recovery. Upgraded seats. Upgraded sound system. A-Z Fabrication rock slides. Trimmed flares. Herculined tub.




A name has yet to really stick with her for more than a week or two, so as of yet, she is still unnamed.

Id like to say mine is done, but its not close.

Id like to get upper adjustable control arms (got the lowers), adjustable rear track bar, SYE, then selectable lockers and regear...

After that, Id probably be satisified... for a few months.

I think the word "done" is not compatible with the word Jeep.

It's a curse to say "done". That's when things decide to show their age

There will always be things to "fix", it's a 26 year old vehicle, it's the nature of the beast. Overall, I'm done. Lift is done, tires, protection. Got the biggies out of the way, I'm just so happy to have a reliable play toy that isn't on jacks every weekend.

Mine will be "done" when I'm buried in it.

What's funny is, after I made this thread, I realize there's about 3 or 4 things I'd still like to do on the Jeep. I guess they never really are done.

New list of "Upgrades"
- Motorcraft 2150 carb
- rear LED tail lamps
- hardwired CB
- firestick antenna
- rear bumper with swing-away tire carrier


:-D
