Blue on Black build

Figured it was finally time to start a build thread if for nothing else for my own record of what is was, what it is and where it's going. I've owned my TJ since September of 2007. Here is the day I bought it. I told a buddy of mine that is a dealer that if he found a blue hard top auto 4.0L to let me know. Two weeks later I signed the papers on it. Only wish I knew about d35's back then.




First "mod" I made was to install my Sunrider soft top. This wasn't until spring of 2008. I didn't realize I installed the rear windows wrong. They were SLOPPY but I was thrilled. Also removed the milk jugs on the front.

My first day with the doors off. Not a mod but an important step for the life of my TJ.

Ordered and installed a replacement head unit. Cheapy but it had an AUX jack and that's really all I wanted in a TJ that's so prone to theft.

Hated the chrome wheels with a passion. Found a guy selling the Canyons that I love to this day. For some reason I can't find a pic with them right after putting them on but here it is with the Canyons and lifted right before my 32's got mounted.



After that installed the Rough Country 2.5" lift, added Dick Cepek DC1's and BFG 32" KM2's.





At this point I figured I was probably set for life. I had never even wheeled it yet but I was ready to set the world on fire.

Joined TORC offroad (torcoffroad.com). Went on a few wheelin trips with them and decided to go on the trip to Harlan, KY. I was slightly freaked and decided I needed some upgrades.

Enter Rokmen ww2ww sliders(looking back wish I didn't do ww2ww), and Aussie locker.







Locker installed in Jeremy Newlands garage for the price of a few pizzas:

Oh yeah somewhere in there I added these LEDs thanks to my neighbor who designed them:



I currently have the next gen of these lights installed now. Again thanks to the neighbor.
