99tjsahara's Build
 
I got this Jeep for my 1st car in July,08 the specs are:
1999 Jeep Wrangler Sahara stock(unmolested)
4.0 I6 w/ 62500 miles

NP231
3.73 axle ratio
D30/D35 w/LSD( I'm on my third D35)
30x9.5x15 gsa's(replaced with silentarmors)
Tube bumpers

When I first got it I didn't really have any plans for it, then I met one of my friends friend who brought me wheelin for the first time and shortly after I started making plans for it and decided when my budget(high school student) allowed I would start building it, plans are:
Lift(2-4in)
Tires(32/33) mud or all-terrain haven't decided
New wheels or spacers
Disconnects
Lights
Upgrade stereo (new speakers and head unit)
Rear tow hook
Eventually Some armor

Here are some pics from when I got her(stock):

Thanks I thought it was gonna look bad, but it actually looks alright.

This definitely makes me feel better about how it will look.

How tall are your tires actually..like 28.5-29?

Bout 28.5, but I can't wait to get 33's

2006_Sport 08-11-2009 12:17 PM

Looks good for some 28.5s like mine haha.

33s will look sick on your jeep. What kind of rims are you looking at?

I'm sticking with the gamblers, I've always liked how they looked, I've got Spidertrax spacers that should be here by friday.

99TJSahara 08-16-2009 11:23 AM

Got the Spidertrax wheel spacers installed yesterday, I had to swap out the rear wheel studs for longer ones which ended up being 2 threads too long, so I used a dremel to grind them flush with the spacer, replacing wheel studs is an excellent way to blow off some steam.
Here are the pics:

I also added some blue LED lights from Pepboys to match my head unit, and they look cool at night.

My friends gave me his top off his 03, the only problem is it's black, I may try and paint it tan, I also need to tint the rear windows, but it's so much quieter inside, the top doesn't flop around. Pics:

THE BLACK TOP IS FOR SALE PM ME-gone

99TJSahara 08-25-2009 03:41 PM

I had an alignment done about a month ago, and they said I need adjustable ball joints for the right side because the camber is -1.1 and the allowable is -0.9 to 0.4, the left tires camber was -0.1 what could cause the camber to become unaligned?
