Ate UP! My First Jeep

Who knew? All this time driving around in cars and it turns out I am a Jeep Girl!

My last car was a Sebring convertible. I knew I would never have anything other than a convertible. We needed something to tow with, and I wanted a "bug out vehicle" (reading too much fiction!) So this is where we landed.

Now, hubby cant keep me out of the TJ! We have not even made our first payment and have already done a ton of work to it!

This is where we started out, 04 Wrangler X, 58k miles
4" lift
33x12.50's
Interior Rhinoline'd
fender flares (anyone know who and what these are?)

My plates came in the other day and they start out with 8UP. Thought that was pretty funny myself.

Yeah those look like bushwackers, good fenders if you want to keep the tire tread width legal. What are your plans?

Well, the plans are to do the lift correctly. Eventually. The PO did the lift and just dropped the transfer case, instead of doing the rest of the work underneath. So we will get to that sometime in the next year.
First I need rocker panel guards
New front bumper with tow hooks - still stock at the moment.
Light bar possibly, definitely more lights, but have not decided on location yet.
Change antenna, would like a shorter one
Considering one of the frameless soft tops. There are a couple tears in the one it has so someday will need replacing.
Eventually, when we are rich and famous I would like to put in lockers.
Considering switching wheels to all black.
Change out mirrors, dont know to what yet.
Wire in power inverter
Would like to get a CB, but have never used one before and dont know anything, so that will take a while til I know what, when, why and how.
Oh, and need a high lift jack.
Dont plan to lift it any higher or get any larger tires. It is good as it is.

Did the regear to 4.56's. Still had the 3.07's with 33's and it was a DOG on the highway!

Great to drive now!

Here we removed the rear seats and made a lid for the rear storage area.
