04 lj unlimited on a budget (hopefully)
 
A little background. It all started when my dad and I went to visit family in Indiana during the summer of 2011. The family next door had a jeep with the top down and doors off. We took it out for a ride. After that we started looking for a wrangled. we found an 04 lj unlimited in november 2011 it was a 6 cylinder with automatic transmision. It was all stock. we have done only taken off the milk jugs and incase you didn't notice that the headlight bezels are out because they are being painted as I'm typing this. We ordered a 3" bds suspension lift on Thursday that we will be putting on ourselves.:D
