02 TJ build

So I recently bought a TJ project jeep. It is not my DD and will almost exclusively be used to get me to the crawling/off roading site and back. It is the 4.0 sport with Automatic and Dana 44 rear end. The PO had put a 2" coil spacer lift on it with 30x10 on what I think are Rubicon wheels. They also had Smitty tube bumpers front and rear and the interior is rhino lined.

OK so now to what I have done to date.
I've removed the front bumper and replaced it with a Smitty stinger bumper and matching Smitty 8k lb winch. I cut off the ends of the lower tube on the rear bumper for a tapered look and because the jeep was hit from the back and had dented the lower tube.
I have installed an SYE kit and CV driveshaft and am halfway through installing a rough country 6" short arm suspension lift.
Things I am also in the process of doing include cutting out the muffler and cat and replacing with a high flow muffler, a cold air intake( not sure if I want to go snorkel route yet), 35" tires, and then of course some rock guards. This is a Florida Jeep but I may want to take it on a road trip at some point.

Future plans include a Dana 44 front axle. Upgraded axles front and rear. Lockers. Gears. 37" tires. That's all I have at the moment. Thanks for reading.

Put on a used set of 315/75/16s yesterday so i could get it aligned. Dropping it off at the shop today so they can fine tune the suspension and hopefully fix the wicked DW I've developed.
