I've been browsing the site for awhile now, and since I'm back from school for the summer I thought I'd start my own build thread to keep track of all of the things I'm going to do to my WJ.
Currently I'm an Army ROTC cadet at the University of Iowa, and while the pay from the Army isn't bad, this build will likely take me a few years to get it how I like.
What's been done since I got it two years ago:
-Painted the frame/gas tank
-Debadged the whole Jeep
-Herculined my rocker panels, etc. (has already faded horribly in less than a year due to my car sitting outside 24/7 at school
Here's what the plan is (in order of what will be done first):
-Remove and paint my grille black
-Work on my right rear rust spot
-3 or 4" IRO Suspension lift
-New 265/70/16 tires
-Either new black rims or will clean up and paint/powder coat my current rims (suggestions)?
-Roof rack with lights/spare tire
-New speakers/sound system (pretty much all my speakers are blown)
-Custom front bumper with winch
-Rear bumper, possibly with tire carrier
That's the tentative plan. I'm hoping to get the grille, the rust, the lift, new wheels/tires, and possibly the roof rack done this summer.I'll hopefully be posting here every day since I'll have a lot of free time until my full time summer job starts in a month. Hopefully you guys will have a lot of feedback and enjoy my thread.
