Chester's TJ build

So I've been holding off on doing a build thread since I haven't done anything special to my jeep compared to other builds but now that I heading in that direction here we go.

Future plans:
outboard rear shocks
4 Link rear
3 link front
flat fenders (Rokmen)
modify front bumper
WB 100 ish
Fuel cell or stretch tank (Genright)

When I got him in 2009


After some bolt on mods 31's/winch/bumper


I did some wheeling and learned alot



I installed a front aussie locker


and lift kit RC 3.25


SS SYE


Rear locker


Wheeled it some more for two more years




After a few deployments and some reading on other people's builds I decided to get serious with the upgrades
Ford 8.8


35x12.5x15 goodyear MTR K


Wheeled some more




Modified the rear fenders


Wheeled some more

Just spoke to Northern drivetrain and ordered my flange for my rear driveshaft. I had to replace the rusted one that came with the axle. It should be inbefore the weekend so I can continue with the axle.

When I went to White Sands I saw a lot of potential trails but it seemed that they were all on .gov land ? Fun looking trails , and a nice looking TJ .

Thanks GBeasley
Ya most of the trails are Private land but we have permission from the land owners. White sands is all pretty much gov owned whether it be the national park or the military. Lots of the trails are north of Alamogordo near Tularosa
