Cintia the Flame Red TJ

Had the Jeep a couple months now and have put a lot into her already I figured I would start one of these.

2004 Wrangler X 4.0L 5sp D35 rear

Purchased with about 106K on the clock, single owner in Texas. No rust, anywhere. Engine pulled great and the clutch had plenty of grip.



I had ordered a Spiderwebshade Ultra Mesh Cage before I even had the Jeep and it showed up the day after I picked it up
Just the Bikini installed


Drove out to Purcellville to hang out with my dad and brother and snapped some shots of our TJs together which were all picked up within 2 months of each other.
Dad's, Jake's, Mine

Next up I put on a set of 31x10.5 Michelin LTX M/S tires and Wagonwheels that I refinished to flat black. Also pulled all the carpet, pulled the spare tire setup, and added some smittybilt seat covers..




Next up I monstalined the tub in "Lady in Red" which matched the flame red perfectly and installed the rear bumper and tire carrier from Eddie (Ground Pounder Fab)







Then I found a craigslist special spare and added Ediie's first plate relocation bracket, oro plate lights and Savvy LED tail lights





Then came the fun, Metal Cloak Arched front fenders with 4in flares, LED turn signals mounted in the grill and pulled rear flares



Added some paracord grab handles



next step was 33x12.5in tires and some aluminum wheels

That's how she currently sits with a few more items to come until stage 1 is built.

Got regeared to 4.10s and installed Solid diff covers recently only to fine the front one contacts the trackbar. Ground it down to limit that but I may swap it out for a cover with no issues. I also got my anti rock installed this weekend.



currently have a JKS 1.25in body lift, brown dog mounts with 1in lift, novak cable conversion, stainless extended brake lines, black magic brakes (rotor, caliper, pads, shoes and drums), and finally a MBRP black coated cat back all ready to be installed, most of which is in preparation for the UCF UHC tummy tuck to be ordered next month. More pics will follow that.

Agreed, but it can be a pain to pull out the camera and smear oil/grease all over it as you snap pictures.

Plus it interrupts progress.

Ha, sometimes a guy likes to work on his Jeep in peace. Here is an "in work" pic for you.

I completely understand. Which is why I only have before and after pics.

Good day today and yesterday.

MBRP Catback installed. Sounds great, very small amount of drone during the lower RPM range accelerating but quiet at highway speeds. I also have no carpet and a softtop.

Novak cable conversion for the transfercase installed. PITA. Novak needs to go back to the design where they give you the nuts for the tub bracket and not use ones they weld on. One was far enough out of alignment that I had to open up the hole in my tub to get the bolt threaded. Its done now and shifts great.

Also got my extended braided lines on along with a full black magic brakes upgrade in the front.

The bleeder on the passenger side was over tightened and I ended up having to use vice grips to get it out and back in but its tight, no leaks and air free!
