i figure that its time to make a build thread to keep track of this stuff so here it goes. please enjoy
I got the jeep in 2010 from a cheesy used car dealership. i ended up wrecking it pretty bad taking my girlfriend home the day after Xmas.
it looks like just some fender damage but the unibody got twisted up and had to be repaired. after that came some 245/75-16 cooper discoverer STTs on factory suspension
then came the 2" BB
i soon found the beauty of a disconnected sway bar
things ran pretty smooth and i really didn't do much to the jeep for a while then i had to put a transmission in it. i just picked one up from a junk yard nothing too crazy. all was well for a period of time until.....
i ordered a re manufactured motor from engines direct with a 100k mile warranty they were great to deal with and even took my core with a hole in the block.
once i got the motor in all was well once again accept for a few little things but nothing major
at this point the parts started showing up and a pile started forming in the garage
LED interior lights and underhood lights
Kenwood head unit install
then i snagged some stuff at work for a home brew Co2 system
JKS quicker disconnects
custom front tow point from Ablaydes
spidertrax spacers and some one piece lugs
a major problem that i ran into was a cracked "frame" i read about this from another member that had the problem after the install of an addco rear
so i stole his idea and fixed it right up, what a way to jump into welding. i really dont have much welding experience at all and i consider this my first project. this fix took care of a mysterious clunk that i could not find for a few months of searching
i have a set of 5 JK rubicon wheels and 5 Goodyear wrangler MTRs waiting to go on. i decided to try out the Surevalves because i have horrible luck with valve stems and tires lol. these things are pretty cool
and in November of 2012 this is where i stand on my build hopefully there will be much more to come.
