I bought my jeep about 2years ago, wanted to have something that I could play around with as well as the ability to enjoy the summer time and get me to and fro! The jeep when I got it was completely stock aside of the 2" Skyjacker BB and the Wrangler X tube bumpers. 2 days after I bought my jeep she returned home like this:
I loved that mudding spot so much i went back about 2 weeks later and ended up doing a little something like this:
This was a result of being hydro locked and FLOODING THE COMPUTER :
It took really about a year for the JEEP FEVER to hit me before I went crazy and wanted everything on God's green earth for it. The christmas after my GF got me some soft8s and the rents hit me up wit a set of 31x1050x15 Mastercraft MTS:
After going out riding with some other local jeepers and seeing how incredible a vehicle can overcome so many different terrains IT WAS ON!
( im just going to post multiple pictures of mods now )
MY biggest reason for this build is because there are thousands of experts up here with great advice and i love to get input and help with anything that I am doing! Yesterday I weant and picked up these babys, got both for $400:
The top axle is a D44 from a Bronco with 3.55s and the rear is a D44 from an Isuzu with 4.10s, I have never done anything like this before but last night I took the rear apart as much as possible and am working on getting everything in it replaced and cleaned up along with a locker of some sort and 4.56s!
My biggest plan for the jeep is getting these axles on, custom homebrew longarms, mabey a stretch and comp cut??, and 35s. I have a 3.75"RC kit already and a 1"Brown Dog MML waiting, but I was going to wait on the Axle install which will hopefully be in the next few months!
WARNING!!! This is probably going to be a VERY SLOW and Agonizing build but if you guys will hang with me ima try n git-r-done!
What kind of fenders are those? Out of all of the ones I have seen they have got to be my favorite.
I custom built them along with my lightbar, rockers, and rear bar! I did mine a little different tho, they are actually made from ALUMINUM! i know its not as strong but they are incredibly sturdy and you can grab the fender and shake the whole jeep the way they are constructed
Nothing good about the guts or nothing as of right now, I am currently working on a custom tire swing and rack for the rear! that is moving slower now though since I have got the axles.
Future plans are:
-Install RC 3.75"
-Install Brown Dog 1" MML
-Detroit Locker mabey? (suggestions please)
-Yukon 4.56 gears
-Yukon 4.56 gears
-Build custom cage
-Throttle Body spacer of some sort
-(5) 35x1250x15 Goodyear MT/Rs
-Install Hummer style snorkel
-Build custom longarms
-Install custom LED rock lights
(Anything with INSTALL I already have just havnt had the chance to put on)
I am planning on doing as much work to my jeep as possible myself, I like the feeling and comfort of knowing that I did that and if something messes up or doesnt seem right I can find the answer myself!!
Let me know what you guys think please!! links and suggestions would be awesome
Thanks bro it is going painfully slow, especially this week my work is trying to kill me signing me up for all these classes and engineer training! I JUST WANNA WORK ON MY D44s : ! hopefully here in the next week or so i will have them gutted and grinded!
