First change all fluids and go over everything real good. And hang some black ice on the mirror haha. He modded the door hinges to take the doors off and they don't line up great now but he included new hinges so I'm gonna put those on. Then save up for a 4.5 long arm and some 33s and some black rock beadlocks

First thing first, I actually have some bump steer to cure, don't know If it's drag link or if its just that I need to adjust the control arms. It just hunts a little bit while driving. On a really smooth road you can let your hand off the wheel and it drives perfect until the slightest bump then you have to keep it in a straight line

Well guys I failed Maryland state Inspection yesterday. Not a big deal. I need new front rotors, LCA bushings, 3rd brake light, and windshield to pass. Everything else on the jeep was good. Going to be replacing all this soon so I can get my tags and stop using the guy I bought it from tags. Also going to put a new starter on because mine almost left me stranded the other day. I haven't had time to do anything yet. To much school and hockey. Hopefully over thanksgiving break and I can get under the jeep and get some ****t done. Trying to decide exactly what route I want to go as far as lift steering gears sye tires and stuff like that. I'm excited to get the build going though. Once I can sell some more parts from my cj5 and get some money ill be loading the garage with parts to build it. Gonna paint the grill black and Bedliner the rockers soon to. Maybe paint the rubi wheels black for now. Any input guys?

Passed inspection yesterday and got my own tags! Got new rotors, windshield, 3rd brake light and talked them into passing the rest. This week I'm getting new upper and lower balljoints, new track bar bushings, LCA bushings, tie rod ends, and now I have to put a new alternator on because apparently muddy water isn't good for alternators! Did some wheeling yesterday. Happy thanksgiving!

Could anyone recommend what they think the best lift and tire size combo is as well as brands of lift? I want bigger than my 3 Inch I know that and I want Atleast 33s. Just can't decide. My old jeep had about 7 Inches and 37s so I know how it is with bigger lifts. What has worked well for you guys?

Finally got some time to work on the jeep today! Put a new alternator and belt on. They could not have put that alternator in a worse spot! Fought with almost everything in the way. Overall successful though because I found out alot that I need to replace and finally got to really go through everything real good. Also used my friends shops lift to see what size lift I think i should get and it's looking like a 4.5 or 5 inch lift will be perfect for what I want.

good looking jeep to start with I would stick with the 3'' trim trim and make that long arm but that's just me I like them nice and low. 4.5 works great on 33's with some trimming that is what I have for the time being.

The wheeling I do 3" just doesn't cut it. I need Atleast 33s. Low cog is definitely a huge benefit to any kind of vehicle but 3" is just a little to small for me. I def am gonna go long arm though. I want a smooth ride on and offroad and I want alot of articulation. Don't know how much trimming I can do because I have to keep this jeep legal. My last one on full size Chevys was bAdass though

More spring doesn't make you flex better. I'm on 3 inches and 35s and there isn't too many places that limit me due to belly height.....

And when you do get into scrubbing your belly, some long arms have a higher clearance belly pan skid. I dont want to go over 4" and the next set of tires im buying are 35s.

You can trim your front and rear fenders and put your stock flares back on, just make shure to bumpstop when you do that or you tire will get hungry and eat your flare lol
My fronts are trimmed up to where there is a little lip and the back is cut and folded, look in my build.
