I never started a build thread when I got my jeep and began to mod it. I want to keep track of it just to remember. And also so people can check it out if they're interested.
So my name is Sam. I got this 2004 TJ Sport in 2008. I got it bone stock from my older sister who wanted a gas saver with about 63,000 miles on it. It has the 4.0L I6, 42RLE Auto transmission, NP231 t-case, Rear D44 with disc brakes and a D30 front.
First thing I got for the jeep was Mirrors for taking the doors off. I wheeled it alot in some nearby hills while it was stock before doing much to it. I did a few things for looks, and some lights. Front headlight guards, rear headlight guards three KCs on the front bumper. And I got some rock rails for my B-day in 08. And I also purchased some 30x9.5x15 BFG All-Terrains.
The closest pics I have of it to stock:
I wasn't easy on the jeep at all. I wheeled it hard and often. I got it stuck in the hills mudding one night and had my dad come try to pull it out and couldn't get it. We left it there over 2 nights of solid rain. On christmas day 08 it stopped raining and we went back and were able to pull it out.
Pics after pulling it out:
I went down a pretty steep hill and bent my exhaust:
Then some other small mods around winter of 2008; I got a K&N intake (which I know is no good, it's gone now don't worry) and a cheap hood scoop. Also a new Alpine deck and all new speakers.
Next was the first stage of lift and tires
