So I am going to start this build off by saying that this happens to be my fourth jeep in less than 3 years.
That being said I picked up my new to me 2004 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited in April 2013 with 56,000 miles.
I got an excellent deal.
It stayed stock for a few months. Took it out on the beach while i figured out what i wanted to do to it.
Finally decided on the Zone 4.25" Combo Kit. 3" springs, 1.25" body lift and a 1" motor mount lift.
Now for some reason i didnt take any pictures of the lift install.
The body lift took the better part of a weekend to get installed with three people.
The suspension lift was much of the same.
Then after driving around on stock tires for a week or so I stumbled upon a good deal on 4 35x12.5x15 Dick Cepek FC-II tires.
Then I pulled the stock spare tire mount and third brake light and cut the front bumper down to a stubby.
Also created a cb antenna mount that uses two of the spare tire carrier bolts to hold it to the tailgate.
I got JK Turn signals installed, picked up a set of zero flare hoodline fenders that i installed. and then for christmas i got a set of rampage h4 headlights that i put in. and a smittybilt vaulted glovebox that still needs to be installed.
Also ordered a rear tire bumper/tire carrier from Down N Dirty Offroad and a pure jeep steering box skid that im still waiting on.
Once my tax return comes in I will be ordering a new set of 35x12.5x15 KM2s, Novak Cable shifter, and IRO tie rod. as well as possibly picking up a hp44/9in combo and building them slowly over the course of this year.
