99 TJ mini build thread

I figured that i would start one of these, since that im going to be putting on 31" tires and a 3" lift in the next two weeks.

This is what it looked like the day that i bought it


I have added a sub, and new head unit, sorry no pics of this

I put on windshield protectors.


Then tinted the windows


Added some camo seat covers and steering wheel cover


This weekend im adding some BFG AT's 31x10.50x15 (pics to come)

The following weekend ill be installing a 3" lift (pics to come)

I know that its not much but i thought that you might want to see

Enjoy
