Really, I something wish I had bought it stock..... but then I would probably be on 32s or something

Here is a few wheeling pictures from this last weekend.


Way to big to be on this small trail. Pic does not do the incline justice.




Those are 33s under that muck.


Real steep incline. Tried to recover him with my winch, but the clutch would not engage/disengage.



After I got home, I pulled the winch of the heep and will get into the problem soon enough.

^^ You have seat risers? I'm 5'11" and when I dropped the windshield once it created such horrible blind spots on my corners. I needed to be higher to see it.

And you don't have a problem with blind spots created from the windshield frame?

And my tie rod end should be arrive tonight. Hopefully the rain will stop enough to get it installed.

Mounting and Electrical left to do. I am having a hard time locating the square mounting nuts locally. And the Orange on the fins did not come out as well as I was hoping...

Looks good, but the Flares are not to my taste. Trade?

Got the jeep back from the dealership last night. It looks like they replaced the front cats, the rear cat and the pipe in between. Should have the winch on the jeep this weekend ready for the test before I buy some cable for it.

My Second (and back up for the LJ)



In late summer 2010, I traded my safe and secure DD for a 2005 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited LJ with a few mods. This thread is started to help me keep track of all the things I done with this Jeep and for help and input from fellow Jeepers. I have a "build" direction and an idea of what I want the LJ to look like and how I want it to handle, but I view this Jeep as a life long project. With that said, here she is.



Still on the lot.

It came with:
~51,000 miles
4.0 I6 232
6 speed manual
231tc
dana 30 locked (full time)
dana 44 rear locked (full time)
Clayton belly skid
Big Daddy off road bumpers (f and r) with steering skid
35" x 12.5" BFG KM2
~3" lift-might be RE
~1" body lift
Full cage
Full hard doors
currie/rusty's cross over steering (found this out much later)
and a few other things


This is my third Jeep, but my first DD.

After it got home to meet the other one.





Drove it like that for a while, then started to change it the way I wanted....


Painted Flares




Wheeled it




Wheeled it




Wheeling with fellow member


Replaced the winch on the front with the one that was on my CJ. 8274 are the best


New doors


Wheeled




Added switches


New wheels and tires. MT Kevlars 35"x12.5" on Procomp Steelies

After the new tires went on, I realized the steering need another upgrade. Currently the Jeep is parked until this weekend when the new steering goes on.

I am going to leave it at this. I'm sure there is more that I forgot.

Welcome to JeepForum! You'll make a LOT more friends by removing the photos when you quote things like that. Scrolling by 20+ photos that were in the beginning of the thread is not fun for anyone. Just a thought, please take no offense!

OP: LJ looks great. I'm jealous of the wheelin' without the windshield, but I don't think I'd have enough luck to get it to bolt back up easily once I was off the trail. Can't wait to see more pics of it!
