Calven727 1998 TJ Sahara

I figured I should start one of these to keep track of my build process. Im still in college as of now so It wont be a fast build.

Future plans are hopefully to go with a Clayton's 3-link front and 5" stretch 4-link rear. 8.8 or 60 rear and probably keep my 30 front till it explodes then probably a 60 front.

Here are a couple picks from the day i bought it.





decided I wanted to make it harder for people to get in during the winter, and i like the look of full doors so I traded a guy straight up for these. They still need to be painted but they dont look terrible.



Then I had to have the windshield mounted KC's lol


I search craigslist everyday and got lucky enough to grab these or-fab tube doors worth 320 for 80 bucks. He had only posted for 30 mins before i got them lol


Then got some money from my birthday and ordered the poison spyder trail stinger and this is how she sits as of now

Today I got my new switch with an led tip from 12voltguy.com and put that in. Had to cut out alittle next to my cd player for it to fit right but I think it looks cool
