So earlier this week I sold this:
'00 6.5" IRO lift on 35s
and bought this:
'00 w/ 160k TJ surface rust on the frame, a broken body mount, and rotted fenders for $4000
Ordered some flat steel tube flares for it, 33" grabbers, and a friend is giving me his old 2" budget boost. Long term plan for this one is 3.5" of lift, long arms with a rear stretch, and a D44 or Ford 8.8 on 35s with a tummy tuck. Stubby bumper for approach angles, etc.
I want to keep it low and centered with a good amount of articulation but also streetable for DD duties for now.
Will post some more updates tomorrow once the cutting gets started.
