OK....my TJ is nearing completion of Stage 1. My goal was basically to build a very offroad capable rock crawler and all-around offroad Jeep for this first stage. It cost me about $ 19,000 to get to this point...it adds up quckly.... Just Empty Every Pocket is so true. This next summer plan to add a cage, seats, and 5 pt harnesses. Then Vanco brakes and maybe hydro steering....followed eventually by D60 axles. That order is subject to change once I start wheeling it. I'll be taking it out for it's maiden voyage on Monday 12-14-09 (my wife's birthday no less ) (UPDATE...issues arose and the maiden voyage did not occur...see next thread) but am still waiting for my Bilstien 5150 Shocks to arrive....Bilstien is slow.....and I should have my spare tire on Monday as well.

Now for some updated pics...I decided to get ACOS Bump stops as well.









Below is the rear view with the Genright swing down tire carrier and bumper plate installed. It also has a bumper backing plate installed that you have to remove the fuel tank to install the plate. So while the tank was out I upgraded to a Genright aluminum all welded 24.9 gallon fuel cell and skid plate...giving me an additional 5 gallons of fuel capacity. Figured I could use it since my mileage my be slightly lower now



Check out the cool LED back-up lights in the rear bumper plate. I'll need these as I am installing flush mount round tail/brake lamps when the TNT full corners go on. You can also see the hitch installed...frame tie-ins of course.



Below you see the Genright Tank Skid, Tank and hitch



Below is the driver side view of the tank and skid viewed thru the wheel well



I will post more pics as soon as the spare tire is mounted and I get the Jeep out. It will be about 2 more weeks before the Tube Fenders, Sliders, Full Corners, K & N FIPK Intake, Optima Battery are ready for install.

Well...had to go with the Skyjacker Rock Lock swaybar disconnect because the regular disconnect was hitting the high steer on the passenger side on the articulation ramp. I wanted the ORO Sway Loc but got a good deal on the Rock Lock....yeah I know what I gave up. But got a promise of a full refund if I was not happy with the Rock Loc. So I'll give it a try. Damn Bilstien Shocks still not in....the last thing holding me up now. Hoping to have it done before Xmas.

Good news though....my TNT Tube Fenders, Extended Corners and sliders are in my garage now...along with the LED front turns and rear tails. I will start on those as soon as the suspension is completed. More pics soon....

no maiden voyage yet....delayed by sway
bar disconnect hitting high steer on passenger
side when put on the articulation ramp.
Had to change to anti-rock type device.
That should be the last issue. My shocks
still are not here. It should be done
before xmas. Hopefully some more pics
later today.

Well...finally got a couple more pics...crappy cell phone pics, but pics none the less. This is the Rock Lock just about installed...a little more work yet to go. Need to remove the stock front sway bar and standard discos. Still waiting on shocks....got one here...three to go, then stage 1 is complete.
I have decided that a real cage, seats and harnesses are next up, in a few months. Next pics will be when the shocks are on and I have it out wheeling a bit.
