An Iowa TJ Built for a Cyclist

Time for another wonderful build thread! I've been a part of Jeepforum for awhile but this will be my first build thread so I apologize in advance for any stupid questions or comments that I make in the future!

I first owned a 1990 YJ in high school that had a 2" body lift with 30x9.5 A/T tires....not pretty or functional. Sadly, it suffered a winter rollover accident that crumpled the body. I was then given for FREE a 2000 GC Limited that I had fun with for awhile (small lift, tires, driveline, etc...) until I finally had a good enough job and enough saved to purchase another Wrangler. And what did that get me?? A 1999 TJ soft top with 166,000 for 6K! People told me I overpaid but it's remarkably clean for a 99! (I'll have pics later)

So here's the plan:
3" Zone lift with hydro shocks
33" Kelly Safari TSR
Regear the 35/30.....or find a dana 44 from a rubi
Flat fenders front and rear
Audio stuff

And we'll see where things go from there!

I'm also a semi-professional cyclist so I'll also be thinking up useful mods for that. Any input towards that would be great!

I'll have pics up later. Kinda hard to write a full post while at my job.
