JFox21's Build Thread
 
Alright guys, finally a build thread from me. I used to have one but didn't keep it updated. I deleted that one and am starting this one.

First got the Jeep in October 2007, bone stock.

Did a little stock wheeling:

Also threw in a CB Radio:

Then came a budget boost. I bought some Cragar Soft 8's from Summit and MT/R retreads from Treadwright.

Wheeled that setup for a while, here's a picture from a trip to Hollister:

Then I decided to go higher:

4.5" Front Coils, Adjustable Track bar, and Skyjacker Shocks

Turned out pretty good:

Now for the MAJOR updates!

Got the IRO OTK Steering:

Followed by the IRO Front Long Arms:

So I was going to get the IRO Rear Long Arms in the Group Buy, but then I saw that Jones was selling his Clayton's Rear LA's, so I picked those up for a great deal. Thanks Brian!

Installation Pictures:

The Clayton's install was over Memorial Day weekend. Big thanks to Nick and Matt (Starboard M on here) for the help!

And now for a picture taken yesterday:

Been sitting for a while as I have been on vacation, but there is a hug plan in the works.

I have Clayton's 7" coils, Bilstein 5125s (You're the man Kolak!), JKS adapters for the shocks (Also from Kolak), and 35" BFG M/T KM1s waiting to go on. Should be completed soon.

Nice jeep! Reminds me of mine. They looked identical.... before you had to go and get LA's. :p

It needs to be cleaned up and washed, it got nice and dirty while I was gone for the last four weeks.

No problem. Glad you're putting them to good use! The Jeep is looking good.
