I'm back with another 99TJ, some of you guys may remember by last TJ, for those who don't, here's the build for it:
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f22/9...-build-835141/

I bought my current Jeep on 10/29/11, it came in on trade at work, and I knew I would be taking it home.
Specs:
99 wrangler 130K, 4.0, Rock-it CAI, banks headers, banks muffler, Jet Chip(not installed), ax-15, np231
4'' lift(tomken I think), 1'' body lift
35x12.5 MTR's mounted on 15x10 outlaws
D30 4.56 gears ARB locker
D35 4.56 gears ARB locker, with upgraded shafts (I believe it is a super 35 kit, when I pull an axle shaft I'll know)
ARB compressor mounted under hood
Tomken stubby front bumper
Tomken rear bumper
Warn M8000 winch

It also came with a soft top and soft doors

Pics:

Little more progress today, I started to drill 2 holes in the frame rail(one on each side) to allow debris to drain out and not cause rust, but I need to go buy a 1/2'' bit, I also swapped out the t-case skid plate bolts for the longer ones that came with my RC 2.5 on my last jeep.

new on left, old on right


Hopefully all 3 of these items will be gone soon.

Small goodies have been ordered.
I also bought this off a JF member, but I'll need to relocate the ARB compressor so I can put it on.

I just got back from my 700+ mile round trip home for the holidays, jeep didn't skip a beat, but I am in need of a SYE, starts to get bad vibes around 70mph, while I was there I installed these:

Delta quadbars:

Today I pulled the carpet cause it's soaked after like 4 days of rain, I'll likely leave it out for the winter, I also sanded and painted the floorboards.

Also I've been working an extra day a week to start saving up for a SYE, Rear shaft, JJ control arms, tummy tuck and other goodies

Primed


Painted

Washed my jeep for the first time today and extended the spare tire stoppers.



My extended stoppers: made each with M6x1.0 50 thread, 2- 1/4''x1.25'' washers, 1/4''x1.25 rubber washer, 1/4''x1'' sleeve as a spacer

Note: I'd like to use some larger OD spacers but I couldn't find any with a M6 or 1/4" ID, but I'll probably end up making some out of 3/4'' or 1'' barstock I've got left over from when I made my tubing bender.

Yea, it's a sweet color, it looks great clean and you can't really tell when it's dirty.

Yep, You should see it when its new, Sometimes maroon, sometimes burnt orange-ish, with a copper metallic to it, all depends on the light.
I ordered mine new in 99, spec'd out very similar to yours except dana 44/3.73, mine had a tan soft top at one point.

I was thinking the same thing when I polish/waxed it today, I kinda wish mine still had the gambler wheels it came with, I can't stand these wheels it's got now, but wheels aren't too high on my to-do list.

Depending on your build date yours could have came with canyon's. I placed my order on 3/12/99. Every TJ on the lot with 30" tire and wheel package had gamblers, When mine was delivered on 4/08/99 it came with canyons as did every 30" tire TJ on the transport. I had the dealer switch them out for gamblers before I took it home.

She was made in August or September 98(actually very close date to my previous sahara) with the 30'' tire package, so I assume it had gamblers.

JB conversions has their wide chain kit on sale for $225, is it worth the money or should I just put in a replacement chain? I'll likely be ordering a JB super short sye sometime in January.
