97 TJ's "build up"
 
Current Set Up:

Well, it honestly isnt even THAT built up, but i'll make a nice story line of everything i have done to it, and i'll keep it up to date if possible.

Well, here it is, day 1. first time i saw it.
100% stock, lived in the city. you know how it is

well, i grabbed some new-to-me rims and tires seeing as those 4 were bald as can be, and an OEM soft top. got it dirty that first weekend

Next, i got rid of the chrome headlight rings, and did a whole bunch of krylon fusion on my fenders, bumpers, and mirror brackets. anything that was "black" originally got sprayed.

2800 miles later, here we are. nothing changed since then. After a few months (this was about 3 weeks ago) I ordered myself a budget boost. Got that badboy installed finally.

it works just fine. the soft top has a hard plastic part that emulates the door jam on the hard top. fits just fine

Dr. Marneaus 11-16-2006 09:30 PM

heres an actual update though!

the CB has been mounted:
