4.0l sahara's green sahara build

Well I thought it was about time to make a thread for my 99 tj. I bought it about 1 year ago.

What I've done so far:

Sound system
Rokmen mercenary FW bumper
tons of maintenance
painted headlight bezels black along with repainting other faded parts
55w 6000k hi/low HIDS
aluminum radiator
flowmaster 40 and magniflow cat
EMP gas tank skid
160 amp dodge alt
other small stuff that i don't remember

I just ordered a re 4.5" lift with all 8 ca's adjustable, also a re rear trac bar, AA sye and a TW drive shaft. Alos JKS rear bar pin eliminators.

I also have a arb with 31 spline shafts for the dana 35. I will be adding a lot to this tread in coming months.

day it came home.



other random pics i have on photo bucket for now

I plan on getting a winch and i had a bad bearing in the stock 117 amp alt so this is imo the best bang for the buck alt upgrade. It's a lot cheaper than a 200 amp mean green alt. I would get better cables like i did.

I think it would do fine for you along with a good battery. You need one from a 2002 dodge Durango with a 5.9L. I bought a new one from napa. it was just under 200 i think.

Okay guys im trying to pick if i want 33's or 35's. I'm not worried about what i need to do as far as axles, brakes and steering. I will adress what needs to be depending on what size tire I pick. I'm thinking 35's? Also what do you guya think about steel vs aluminum wheels im leaning to the steel but im not shure. This will be a dd still for now so i want to pick a tire/wheel that will still be okay for the road and wear good im thinking of the bfg km2's. I dont care that much about mpg's but what do you think a 35" with 4.88's would get?

Good looking rig man. And the plans sound great. I daily drive my TJ with 35s and steel wheels are the ride is not bad at all. I have yet to regear, but once you do, I'm sure you'll be happy with the set up. Go big or go home!
