Long time reader and first time poster on this site!
So this is my TJ I picked up a year ago this time and on my drive up from San Diego with the Jeep the OEM top managed to rip itself off as seen in the picture above.
The car is in a rush to get finished up this month so it can attend the 2013 SEMA Show. I figured I would document that progress here and release some videos of the build probably after the SEMA Show.
Our first modification was to get some extra power out of this weak 2.5L engine. We did an installation video on it here:
We had a big installation weekend last week and put on a ton of parts from Rampage and Rugged Ridge to get the exterior getting into shape. We also used plasti-dip to black out our turn signals, taillights, and chrome headlight bezels.
These photos show off the Rampage Side Bars, Rugged Ridge Fenders, Rugged Ridge rear bumper, and Rampage tail light guards.
We have a 4.5 inch BDS Suspension about ready to get installed along with a frameless Rampage top and Rugged Ridge front bumper/winch. Light bar, new seats, wheels/tires are all on the way as well! I will keep this thread updated as much as I can this month as we finish up the build.
