RedZJ Super Slow Build Thread **WHAT LONG ARMS SHOULD I GET?**

This is in no way going to be an extreme build and or a fast build... Just yet.

(1/10/11) my plan for now in 3.5 inch IRO lift with 33's, bushwhackers and custom front and rear bumpers...

Here it is...

I first got my jeep about 2 years ago for 700 dollars with a blown transmission.




Just when I was ready to buy my lift I did this..

Dont ya just love dear????



So I had to dish out some money to fix the rad, trans cooler, grill, lights and so on.



Then I got new rims, rubbers and some stickers :]






Then I got a new tent in order to work on the jeep.. Kinda over killed. Its ment to fit 10 Wheelers.. xD





Around 3/14/2010 i put a new radio in... I LIEDDDDD. White Dotte put it in

And a CB

The next thing I did was added some HID's. I work at night and need the light :]


That wasnt enough, so I added 3 Hella 500's


Then she got super Swampers..


Then a Snorkel




Since my battery tie down broke.. I just had to get a real one.. :]



Here is how it sits right now. Stock on 29 TSL's. HID Head Lights, 2 HID fog lights, 2 130 Fog lights soon to be HID.


OK. SO Now lets get this thing rolling. I have the 3.5 inch lift. Just need 2 days to be nice out.
Plus I am going going to be doing the 242 swap also. Here is the lift for now.



Ok, I will be updating if questions or comments are posted.. and ill update with new stuff as it happens.

Dont sit back and enjoy, because this will be slow.. xD

I can get measurement if you want.

Used a ford wind star air box. (V8 Ford F150 air boxes would be a smarter choice)
PVC pipe. 2 and 1/2 I believe.

Ill get more pictures for you tonight. (Just got off work, Im going to bed now )
Ill get measurements for you on monday (if you want)
