Under a year ago I sold my first TJ (thread link in signature) in order to eliminate debt. I ended up trading my 04 TJ for a 2003 Chevy 2500HD + cash. I used said cash to pay off my loan, and thought I would be happy with my newly acquired 3/4 ton 4WD truck. The truck wasn't bad, had every option available, tons of power, but it just wasn't the same. So I ended up trading it for another TJ, this time a 2000 that was already pretty modified.
Info on the new, to me, TJ:
Rock Crawler 3.5" long arm kit with ACOS all around
Rough Country 2.2 shocks
3 link D30 front, ARB, Alloys, WJ brakes, 4.56
4 link D44 rear, OX, Alloys, 4.56
Tom Woods driveshafts front and rear
Smittybuilt tube fenders and rear corners
Hanson offroad front bumper, Warn winch with synthetic rope
Unknown rear bumper + tire carrier
35" MT/R K's, steel beadlocks
I haven't done much other than remove the seat covers, check all the fluids, clean it up a little, install an oil pan skid I had laying around, remove the white gauge cluster and HVAC overlays, and sit around thinking what to do next...
-Procure used OEM carpet and install (I like this creature comfort)
-Remove and sell the Rubicon rocker guards and Smittybuilt tube steps
-Order, paint, and install Barnes 4wd rocker guards
-My front bumper is up for sale, and if it sells I will replace it with a Barnes. If it does not sell I am going to chop the outside tubes and narrow it some.
-Adjust transfercase linkage, if not satisfied, I will order another Novak kit
-Clean this front to back, top to bottom, inside and out in the Spring
-Paint the frame, axles, gas tank skid, rear bumper + tire carrier, etc.
-Different switch panel, don't care for giving up the tray above the CD player
-POSSIBLY replace all of the joints, thinking MC joints.
