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!

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.
