Daddy's power wheel TJ build (Slow build)
I'm making this thread to keep it documented for myself mostly. With 1 income a wife and 2 kids it is going to be a slow build.

Here is how it came to me on 5 Feb 2011:

First thing I did was get it dirty just little bit though lol

This is how

After a lot of pulling to get it out I decide it was time for some "upgrades". First thing I did was get a new rear bumper, taillights, soft top, 2.5" lift, painted fender flares and a good wash.



Thats all I have for now but hopefully ill get more updates soon

I just got a tj a couple months ago and bought about putting a small lift kit on it. How hard was it to put on. What did it run you

It took me about 3 hours by myself. It's not the first one I have installed but I haven't done a ton either. I would say if you can use tools and have general idea of how/where things go your good. As for price I went through Jeephut and they gave me a pretty good deal. They have a post in the venders display area.

Any updates?

Ratm 08-03-2012 04:17 AM

Nothing really to update... I was given a set of Pacer daytonas but I have not gotten around to putting them on yet

Ratm 12-05-2012 12:54 PM

Finally put the wheels on it

They look good on there.

I like how it looks with the black doors ,with a set of black uppers they will look like soft doors .

I know what you mean about "slow build". I don't think it gets any slower than my build is going! Jeep looks good. Good choice to paint it black.

Ratm 01-23-2013 03:53 PM

Funny thing is the color choice has been changed to tan lol

Does anyone have a good wiring diagram for a 98 2.5L ignition. My cluster stopped working while the key is in the run position but works fine if I move it to the start position. I'm wondering if they use a different ground in these two positions. I should note that my gauges do work intermittently and my radio horn AC and lights all work fine. It runs fine and I have swapped out my PCM, Cluster, and my ignition switch and nothing has changed.

The time now is 02:19 AM.
