Save's Build Thread

Well I guess it's time. I'm bored and I assume I've modified my WJ enough to be deserving of a build thread. No clue on how to add this to the Sticky, so if a mod can, I would appreciate it! Thanks

First I bought new side view mirrors since I smashed off the others.


Then I decided to paint the cladding and bumpers black, and new headlights.
For whatever reason I've been seriously slacking on the rear bumper. I bought a brand new one, since my last was a bit smashed up. It's sitting in my shed unpainted.







Then I thought, how about a new head unit and speakers??





Then I decided I wanted to do a 2"BB and get some Cragars.





Then some hooks, Argghh




Install of BB...



yeah we fixed this a few days later...





So after about a week of looking at the BB every day, I decided to scrap the 31's and BB. Decided to go 4" and 32". I got the Teraflex springs on serious discount, and have since been piecing together the rest, mostly from IRO.



here we have:
Teraflex 4" coils
Adjustable track bar
Sway links front/back
HD SS
Shocks
T-Case Drop

In the mail: IRO bump stops
IRO A arm spacer

Bud of mine is lining me up with some 32"s for dirt cheap when I'm ready...

And here she sits today, after a wash, some trail damage. And unfortunately a fogged headlight, which I am planning to take care of soon!

Future Mods:

Roof mount light bar
KOR trail ready front bumper
IRO long arms
Home made snorkel
new brakes!
High lift mount
Looking into a Rear window spare mount








For whatever reason if I'm not carrying my 1911, I have this baby in between the seat and center console.



Finally, official mileage.



Any input great appreciated!

LOL now that sucks.

Wait, Why spend $600 on control arms when their LA's are the exact same price?

This thread is full of fail

FYI, you want the B + C + C option (if you're set on short arms. Like I tell every other person, short arms and 4"+ sucks)

I don't know, because I listen to what people have to say around here on what to buy. You are one of the users that stated control arms. Thanks . I probably could still change it, haven't shipped.

IRO is great, give them a call and tell them what you need and they should be able to change your order.

Correct. You might have vibes in the rear (I did, with the same coils) but that's corrected with some adjustable rear lowers.

If you're going to spend that much on control arms, long arms are the way to go. I'll be watchin out for this WJ.
