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.

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:
4.0 I6 232
6 speed manual
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 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....
Wheeling with fellow member
Replaced the winch on the front with the one that was on my CJ. 8274 are the best
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.
You must not be married, your having way to much fun. I am jelous. I rarelt get to use my Wrangles like they should be, as you are. I am going to show my wife, and tell her its not fair.
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!
