Well I figured I would make a build thread, even though I have been building it for the last 6 years. But here it goes…
I bought my jeep my senior year of high school, it was completely stock 1998 sport with 105k on it and it pretty good shape. When I bough it the guy gave me some 2 inch lift pucks for the front so what did I do the next day? Went to pep boys and bought some 2 inch lift blocks…I know I was young and dumb… not having the jeep more then 3 days it had all ready begun… I can’t find any pics of it at that point, didn’t even have a camera at that point. So I finished up senior year and head off to college with my XJ! I did do a few things, built a roof rack and put on some lights! Well I soon found the schools off road club and I didn’t take long before I wanted more! So after working all of Christmas break I bought my first lift kit, rough country 3inch with AAL…I know…dumb.
I stacked the 3 inch with 2 inch for around 5 inches with stock track bar, no SYE.. all ready sagging in the rear, I also got a set of 30inch off brand MTs from my brother. Wheeled like that for a while, also got a no slip for the rear which helped tons!
End of freshmen year, I had lots of plans for the summer, After spending the first month in South Korea for SAE Mini Baja, I came back with lots of plans..
After going thru 3 stock track bars I ordered up a rusty’s bar with HD bracket. Also added RC 2 inch shackles to try to fix the sag… and bought a set of 32s on black steel from a buddy
Got tired of loosing flares so decide to cut the fenders..
Also built a front bumper…
I had crazy Vibs, no SYE or T case drop, so got an AA SYE and ran a stock front shaft..
And got some good wheelin in
Summer was over so headed back to school. Got some more wheelin in..
On Christmas break I worked to buy more jeep stuff. Got some beef diff covers and built a rear tire carrier bumper. Can’t find any pics though… But kept on wheelin..
