Well I guess its due time I made a build thread for my Jeep. So here it is, enjoy.
I put on a 2" spring spacer a few months after I bought the Jeep, wasn't to hard.
Then I FINALLY replaced my stock GSA tires, they honestly weren't that bad but I am glad to be rid of them. Love my new Duratracs.
The next few days I worked on painting a few things, lug nuts, license plate bracket, gas cap holder, etc. Working on the fender flares at the moment and should have them done by Saturday if I'm lucky.
I did the front flares and then the rear flares, did about 4 coats each, keeping the flare extensions off, looks better and allows me to put rocker guards on later.
They really look much better, its not a pros job, like others have said, "Its a Jeep". So it doesn't really matter, any over-spray i could find was cleared off by using some matching body paint and then wiped clean.
Ok, I forgot to snap a picture before I put the tire back on so this is the best I could get of the spacer on top. Completely removed the bumpstop and left it off, and put the spacer above that, please tell me its correct this time, its a PITA to take the shocks on and off.
EDIT: Nope, this was apparently wrong too, swapped for spacers like the front which still allows for bumpstops, as of now I am using JK rear springs and not a BB. Looking back now I should've done things much differently haha.
It really fills in that empty space on the bumper feeling for me. Haven't decided if I want to drill some bolts into the front for added strength. In a few weeks I hope to have rocker guards installed. Baby steps...baby steps.
Got to do a little off-roading today.
After today I know what I want in upgrades.
I slipped into a rut backing up, trail ahead was just too dense with snow and a tree had falln across the road farther up, didnt have another vehicle to pull me out if I got stuck. I backed out of the rut fine without hitting anything underneath. Tummy tuck, Body lift, 33" tires, and winch are next on the list of mods. Rockers should be here in a week or two I'm hoping.
