Back Where I Belong (2005 LJ Build)

Hey everybody, after a long 3 years I'm back where I belong. I found a 2005 LJ 6 speed, one owner, garaged, and the best part 39k on the clock This is not my first jeep though, my first one was a 2001 TJ sport. I put a 4" RC LA lift, 33" duratracs, smittybuilt front stinger w/ xrc8 winch with synthetic line, warn rear swing out, drop down tailgate, raptor lined tube, and full audio system. I learned a lot during that build and everything I learned I am transferring over to this build. I am going to be a senior in college so I am making this a 2 stage build since funds won't be great for a little while. So here's a basic overview of what I have planned out. Enjoy

Stage 1:

Suspention/Wheels
-2" BDS Spring lift
-ZJ Tie Rod
-Stock Rubicon Moab Wheels
-265/75/16 Goodyear Duratracs

Interior
-6 1/2" Polk DB in sound pods
-5 1/4" Polk DB in dash (Using adapters)
-JBL 5 channel amp (Mounted under steering column)
-10" sub in trunk (Custom under seat set-up/Center consol eventually)
-Drake offroad shift knob

Exterior
-Remove milk jugs and cap both bumpers
-Paint headlight bezels

I hope to complete this throughout the semester

Stage 2:

Suspension/Wheels
-1.25" JKS body lift
-JKS motor mount lift
-Currie anti-rock
-JKS quick disconnects
-285/75/16 Goodyear MTR w/kevlar

Exterior
-Poison Spyder front bumper w/ brawler bar
-Saavy gas tank skid
-Saavy slidders w/ step
-Under cover fab tummy tuck
-Poison Spyder steering skid
-Tailgate reinforcement tire carrier

Driveline
-AA SYE
-Tom Woods driveshaft
-4.56 gears

Lighting
-LED rear taillights
-50" LED light bar above windshield
-HID headlight upgrade
-LED fog lights

So that's that! Hopefully you guys enjoy my journey as much as I do
