Here, we, go... 06 TJ X

Alright, it all started in August of 2007 when I got my license to kill... I mean drive. So I got sick of driving my moms x-tera around town and only had $2500 (I was working at Quizno's) decided to buy a Dodge Ram 1500 that ran, barely.

Well I fixed that up and it survived about 2 years of use and abuse until my radiator started leaking into my engine...

that was the end of that, however it had been two years already so 2 years I had enough money to start looking for a new(er) vehicle. Definitely wanted a 4wd so....


Photobucket


it was a JEEP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:2thumbs up:



Then, of course, I took off a local trail and...

then someone cut a whole in my top while I was in class at my University

so an after market top it was... at the same time one of my "friends" had a 3" BL he wanted to put on my Jeep... I know I know I've learned my lessons since then

Photobucket

then took it off got up on some rocks and POP

Photobucket

so time for new tires!!!!! 33x12.5

Again, I know I know I've learned a lot since then.

Is this the top that someone cut a hole in? Or is this what you used to replace the top that had a hole cut in it?

Nice recovery on the 1" Daystar BL instead of the 3". Your Jeep will thank you too.

lol that was what I used to cover my jeep while I waited for my new top. it was in the 40's the entire 2 weeks. Ive lived in florida my whole life, anything under 70 is freeeeeeezzing

and I might have just found a nice 8.8 for my rear... that means im probably going to the junkyard to find a better trans and need to buy new gears (about time to re-gear anyway) i want 4.88 and i want to beef up that d-30 in the front.

Damnnnn Pikapps in the house!

Pikapp Jeep club anyone?
I almost sold her a while back to buy an xj, thought it would be easier than fixing my mistake. But then I took the top off and decided I'd miss the no door/ topless feel and decided to fix it



This was fun...




No locker + stock shovel.. I mean skid +3in BL = STUCK!!!! took two jeeps to pull me out backwards


PS does anyone know where the recovery hook in the rear bolts up? picture please?

Rough dude....ps. dont write on your jeep when its muddy. Totally scratches it
Trust me i know...

I dont have any pictures but, just behind your bumper there is two/three finger holes in the frame that you can use to mount some tow hooks.

I'd just get a Hitch & D-Ring, unless you don't have a hidden hitch...

No hidden hitch, no hitch period. Working on that too! Ive seen those holes (atleast I think we're talking about the same ones) but this hook from smittybilt doesnt line up with those holes. Did I order the wrong thing?

I think it only fits the front "t-55" holes on the bumper
got it in black but...

finger painting in the mud scratched your Jeep!?!?!
