littledevilTJ Columbia Edition Project

I guess im going to start one of these, i should have started it a long time ago but never did. Ive got a pic of when i fist bought it and i will try to fill in all the rest when i get some more time.
at the lot:


2004
4.0L
it came with rubicon style flares, columbia edition seats and dash yada yada.
dana30/35 with 3.07s and 5 speed. the PO had installed a budgest boost so it had just abit of lift. as soon as i got it home i put the tires from my old TJ on


and it looked like this(33x12.50 xterrains):


Barely had enough room to fit them.

Hey man. Jeep is looking good. I really like the way those flares look against the body. How are those Rusty's springs treating you? I was looking at the RC 2.5" lift, but I like the idea of 3 inches over 2.5, just personal preference I guess. Let me know how they work out for you. Keep up the good work!

they worked great, i loved them. i just switched to RE springs with my skyjacker long arm so i dont have them in anymore. i would recommend those springs though.

lol. ill get there, im going to try to fill in to where ive gotten so far.

found some pics from when i did my quick lock dana 30 install. i love installing these things, they are so easy and perform great.

i pulled the axle shafts out and installed the locker without pulling the carrier ( piece of cake)


got the girlfriend to scrape the old gasket material off the diff cover. it was her first time working on the jeep.

i got the warn m8000 winch used from a guy in the backwoods. he wanted 400, i offered him 300 with alittle coaxing and he took it. the winch has performed flawlessly, other then sparking one night when i didnt have the solenoid pack mounted how it should be. fixed that.

heres a pic without the winch mounted. found some rocks right off the road next to retention ditch and decided to play around. this is also before i had the locker in.

my friend is a dork.
