Building "The Zombie Slayer"

ok so after a few request from people I decided to do a build thread.

heres a little quick info. I bought her brand new in 2005 for 26k and now I have a little over 13k in parts in her. anyways lets get the pic party started.

Two weeks after I bought her I added some wheels and tires from a local shop. back then i didnt know chrome wouldnt get me home




Then I got my first taste of wheelin and I was HOOKED!!!



Then after another couple weeks I added a 3" bds lift and a hi lift jack

After a little while I tore those cheap *** rocker protectors all to pieces and so I bought some PSC rocker knockers. Also decided I wanted some nets but didnt want to spend an insane amount on raingler nets so my mom and I ordered the straps and made our own! (thanks mom!)

So after all of this stuff was done I decided to coat the bare metal floors that I had for so long. (ditched the carpet on day 3 of ownership) went with a durabak spray and ended up doing my stepdads jeep and a friends jeep while I was at it. 3 durabak jobs in one day was stressful Im not gonna lie

Being a zombie aficionado, and a fellow Impact Orange Jeeper, this thread piques my interest. I expect this to live up to it's name.

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

It looked nice but I was really tired of having the 3" lift and the 2" t case drop on there by this time so with my next tax refund I ordered the following:

-Rubicon Express 5.5" Long Arm lift with monotube shocks
-JB Super Short SYE
-Tom Woods Driveshaft
-Rear Cargo Rack
-Safari Top, Tonneau, Windjammer combo













FRONT IS DONE!


Next part!

But it wouldnt be long til I was back on my feet working 2 jobs and then that good ol trip to Afghanistan happened and I made a killing over there (no pun intended)

Paid a lawyer and got custody of my boy!!!!! WOOT WOOT and had enough left over to buy another warn xd9000i and a new hardtop and roof rack. Also the tube fenders had taken quite a beating over the past year so I decided to just spray them with black rustoleum for easy touch up.



Then came the hood decal I made at work on the machine we use for making decals of pilots names for all the jets. This is how my Jeep got its name on base and as far as I know I am the only one with this hood decal (so no one steal my idea!!!)
