This is going to be my build thread for my 99 4dr sport. I came here from fullsize ford land so this is my first jeep build that I'll be wheeling, I've been involved with building my fathers 89 yj with a 400+ hp SBF and helped a couple friends build, tj's, xjs and one with a zj. My plan for this build is going to be in phases. This thread is going to be phase 1, I'll be fixing it loose ends from the previous owner and getting ready for weekend warrior status and capable of weekend long trips to hit more mid level trails at places like rausch and mabell.
Heres some specs
4.0, aw4 231j, 30 front and 8.25 with 3.55's open open.
I got it with a 4 inch lift with rough country lca's and coils, skyjacker shocks, full leaf packs and shackles, jcr stage 2 sliders, logans offroad bumpers front and rear, with an xrc8, 6 hella 500's with a yakihma load warrior rack, sitting on pro comp 32s on soft 8's and ebay snorkel (which isn't hooked up and I may get rid of) Trimmed and mini comp cut.
So far what I've done to it.
lok right in the 30
teraflex track bar
installed coil isolators (they were taken out for some reason)
longer front brake hoses and relocated them.
Solid front diff cover
Drill and pin shift handle to lock shifter to hit reverse easier
LED Brake and reverse light bulbs
I have an sye, tnt mid stiffeners and tomken rail to rail t case skid coming in the mail for this week.
Phase one plans
rear diff skid
relocate rear shock axle mounts
gears (in the 4.56 flavor)
body armor (front fender, lower door and quarters with rub rails)
long arms and bumpstops (still deciding on 3 link or radius arms)
Heres some pictures of the rig. Sorry for the poor quality.
Here it is on a ramp getting me a poor score of 432 on a 25* ramp
