Yeah they have a pick a part over here so I'm going to start calling some time this week. and I'm probably going to paint It black, kind of make the white and black mix, not all black bottom and all white top ya know? When I get it done I'll post pics.
Finally purchased a new set of wheels and tires. They are 18" JK wheels and Bridgestone Dueler A/T tires( 255/70R18 ), got them for $280 and 2 tires are pretty much brand new and the other 2 have about 8/32 left. I know they'll rub a bit but I'll trim to make it work until I get a bigger lift. I'll be installing them this weekend, posting pics ASAP!
Just an update on how much I've spent on this project so far:
All in all I think a running Jeep that looks this good(haha), is well worth the $1,235 total!
All I need now is a $200 windshield and I'll be on the road and in the trails, legally!!
Future plans consist of:
4" lift(long arm!), using BB 6" overall
Other things as well just can't remember at this time!
Alright so I did some wheeling tonight and I must say those who say you can't wheel with 32" tires under a 2" BB mist go hardcore because I'm running that setup and didn't have to many problems other than very little rubbing, I actually ribbed more on the gas tank skid than the fenders. The front wheels actually tuck very well for when flexing but the rear wheels it's a different story. First time getting a feel for the jeep in 4x4 and it's awesome! We went to a sand pit a few miles away from our mud pits and my jeep was the only to make it through there besides a 4x4 Toyota. All those Chevys and fords can't keep up! Haha.
I did get it stuck a couple times because of lack of ground clearance but that will be fixed soon
Unfortunately, I did submerge the front and rear end a bit so I need to swap my fluids. But other than that fun time.
I have a few videos so I'll upload them to YouTube then put them on here.
looks awesome those wheels really set it off...some black paint under the bumper will make it look even better

You drive a tj, we drive a zj. We have more power while you get more shower. We get the v8 while you get there too late. You have 2 doors well, we have 2 more. Ours costs a grand while yours has a price we cant stand.
loving the jeep man....as your aware just picked myself up those exact rims and tires. sitting on 2 inch BB from rough country. While work and school aint letting off hopefully next weekend ill have em on and get the baja cut done. cant get over how sweet its gonna look. ill throw some pics up when i get em on. Did you just cut the bumper with air tools? Thanks for the idea
Grant1ja: the look is sweet. I'm constantly getting compliments on how good it looks as far as the bumper goes, I used a cordless drimel tool and a sawsall(reciprocating saw). Way easier with the bumper off. My friend tried to do the cut with it on and it came out all different kinds of crooked. I taped it off and cut about 1/8" away from it using the sawsall then did the finishing cut with the drimel tool. I'm sure you could use just a drimel but whichever you'd feel more comfortable with.
Be sure to post pictures of what she looks like when your done!
