EVOLUTION of my WJ

haven't bragged about my jeep in a while, so here it goes
starting with the first pic in February of last year, shortly after i got the jeep

first addition, lights

stock wheelin

my group of jeeps

then i bought some 245/75/16 firestone destination mt's

couple wheelin pics on the firestones, still at stock height


then i bought the 2" BB, it was fun while it lasted

When you put the cragars on, had you painted your cladding black?

Just one question, why Thornbirds?

nierace, i'm from southington, we already talked?

lawdogg, yes i painted the cladding black when the soft 8's went on, i thought black and black looked sick

dhrfxjoe, thanks, i'm not sure which i like more haha

semperfismhs, yes, i did the cheapest 4" lift i could toss together, i'm only on a highschool budget!

spife7980, yeah it took a little convincing to get him under there, that isn't me, i dont think i'd have the balls either!

shoey40, the ride on the stock arms is surprisingly nice, VERY much smoother than my friends 4.5" lifted zj on stock arms. nonetheless longarms go in soon though

kenbuck, i'll be sure to continue this thread when the longarms and additional 2" lift goes in, and when i re-gear to 4.10s. and why the thornbirds? 135$ for the set, i know they're not spoken very well of, but they'll tide me over till the km2's come in
