2000 WJ Build

Hey guys. I'm a 20 year old w no previous knowledge or experience in anything w/ auto mechanics. This is my second jeep but this is my first actual "BUILD not Bought" situation so please, hang in there w me.
:noob:

Bought the jeep for $3175 at 159,000 and almost stock. Had 245/70 Cooper snow grooves and two kicker 12's and 1000 watt amp.

First were came the easy mods; black grille & black rims.


Then ordered the 2.5" BB lift kit. Had a pretty easy time installing the spacers, only trouble clamping 1 of the springs.

Was looking pretty good at 2.5" lift and 245/70r16!... But there's always a need for more.

Bought new 265/76r16 Hankook DynaPro that barely fit under there. I love the look and had a little trimming but more in the future before it's trail season.

Did more trim to the front bumper but I'm thinking I like the look of the straight across cut so I might do that. I also need to figure out where in the back I can trim, I'm not sure yet.
