My lazy 2000 2-door build and you can help!
Picked up a 2000 SE 4.0 with a little over 114k a couple weeks ago. This will be a toy that I'll use for camping, trails, and a little light boat towing. It was a municipal vehicle so it's doesn't have power doors or windows but it has cruise, skid plates, ABS, trac-lock and a tow package. Biggest plus is that it's rust free. Zero. None.
Plan is to build it little by little. Interior comfort first, rims, lift, etc. thinking OME 2.5ish or around there and 31x10.5's for now. So far I bought a reprogrammed full gauge cluster to replace the dumb cluster and a 4 switch bezel that'll house fogs and a high idle eventually. Also had all the fluids changed and it got a clean bill of health from my mech.
So I'm open to suggestions and input for the build. Wheels need to be chosen too. Thinking Alcoas like on my last 65th TJ maybe powder coated black. I like the storm trooper white on black. Oh I also bought some clear front signals too. Not the cheap euro eBay ones but the ones like stock except clear. If I like them good. If not I'll keep it stock.
