Travis873o Build Thread

So though it is about time to get my build thread started on here.

I should've started this when it was stock but better late than never.

here's a pic of it as it looks now.

You drive a tj, we drive a zj. We have more power while you get more shower. We get the v8 while you get there too late. You have 2 doors well, we have 2 more. Ours costs a grand while yours has a price we cant stand.

TNT customs frame stiffeners. i almost didnt get them before i did my LA's but then i realized how cheap they are and how much a unibody rig benefits from them.

couple of pictures from Windrock. Couldn't quite get up the steps.
Also the front and rear detroit truetracs works great. It was amazing what I could do as opposed to open diffs.
