I promise I will leave it alone build...
 
My friends call me Bee.

This was my old 02 Tj. RIP

That was over 7 years ago....

:cheers:

Well it's been 2 weeks with the jeep and I love it. Thought I would do a progress thread for it.

Waiting to sign papers. Got a full tank of gas too.

Fits in the garage with 3" to spare. :evil:

I quickly started to take notice the aftermarket goodies that came with the Jeep.

So from what I can see it came with a 2" RE BB, 1" Day star BL, 1" MML from M.O.R.E, and an engine/transmission skid plate from Skidrow.

As you can see from the pictures above the shocks were blown. So a set of OME shocks.

I saw this little guy two coves north of Party Cove on Lake Lewisville.

Props for him getting that far.

Back to the Jeep..

This radio wasn't cutting it with lack of blue tooth and no aux.

$20 If anyone wants it.

Replaced with a JVC unit with no cd player. :smug:

Also got the mag light mounted.

Are those things on your hinges to prevent people from stealing the doors?

Yes sir. Cheap insurance for expensive doors.

Next to my cousins F150 6" lift and 35's


Went and picked up a set of 2013 Rubicon wheels/tires. Adapters should be here today.

PCB 05-08-2013 07:23 PM

Well got everything mounted up. Smooth as butter and didn't even lose an inch of height.

Damn those look so good on a TJ. Might have to think about getting some next time I need tires. Only issue is that the Duratracs don't come in a true 33 for a 17" wheel. Something like a 32.8". So they'll definitly run small.

The funny thing is that I took off the stock 16's with 33's and put on the 17's with 32's and I didn't lose an inch in height.

You could also have them widened.

Interesting. I also like skinny tires. That's why I want to go to a 16 or 17. I can basically get a 33x11.5 which is the perfect tire size.

The new Rubi wheels look good on your Jeep , might throw off a few folks .
