This is my third Jeep.

First Jeeps build thread
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f22/m...ehicle-903781/
/\ Build thread to my first CJ





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.


IMG_0093 - Copy
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.
Hey quick question, what wheels are those that came on your LJ when you bought it? I cant seem to find them anywhere

New part came in from the Beas (GB). This color war might be getting out of hand but at least it isn't chrome. Thank you and Hannah again.

I have the package at the house but I didnt see anything taped to it. I will check again tonight when I get home. I did notice you purchased insurance on the shipment. Claim time?

Selling that may have been one of the biggest mistakes I have made in a while. I would love to have it now. It is northeast Tx last time I heard in 5000 parts, most of them new and spendy. Or maybe I am just romanticizing it.


On another note. Talking to my buddy about this. It is getting rewired and hopefully I can test it after that.

Topless day.

Body level, suspension doing work.







Planned on going wheeling tomorrow and trailering but the trailer situation did not work out.

Put in some rock lights a few weeks ago and had one left over for the grill. Should be wheeling next week.
