Dirtdude35's LJ Build... Third times the charm

This will be my third and best build. Third times the charm. I got a great deal on this 2004 LJ. It currently has 2in body lift and a 1in spacer lift on it with 33s. I took delivery on 9/7/12. And had off road in less than 24 hours. I really am not sure what direction I want to go with it yet. I would like to run 35s. Thinking about going 3.5in suspension and 1in body/mml with flat skid.

Mods when bought
33s
2in body lift
1in suspension lift
12000lbs winch
Front and rear bumpers with tire carrier
Seat risers
Front lunchbox locker

Current
35s
2in body lift
1in suspension lift
12000lbs winch
Front and rear bumpers with tire carrier
Seat risers
Front lunchbox locker
poison spyder comp stinger



Future
4in suspension lift
armor
and more armor


Anyway now for good part pictures
After climbing up on that hill in the last couple pics I bent my exhaust pipe back all the way to my shock Hooked a tow strap up and pull it up off the ground and then came home and cut it off after the muffler. Will be doing exhaust first now

Update time...
Made some foot pegs for going doorless. And took camping/ wheeling over the weekend. Also selling my front bumper and fender flares. I am getting stock flares for it and for the bumper I am going with a poison sypder comp stinger and winch plate.

I ended up getting a bikini top, wind jammer, and a tonneau cover for it so I have less space to heat this winter. And I like the look more than a full top. Went wheeling for a couple of hours 2 weeks ago.
Thinking about getting a motorcycle to ride to work to keep some miles off it. Guess that is everything.

O... I want in on the ride.

You will like the tonneau/jammer/bikini. That is my quick top during the summer for when it starts to rain or for wheeling.

I really like it so far. Had it about a week so far. Heats up so much quicker and is easy just to take the doors and the jammer off vs the whole top

I like how the corners are angled where the tubing lands on the bumper . Is that the Poison Spider stinger ?
