Jeep Wrangler TJ - Apocalypse Rated Edition

Two years of work: Rebuilt, modified and restyled my TJ.
  • 2000 TJ 4.0
  • 35x12.5R18 on CW wheels
  • 3" K&S Flex Lift (German company) with Bilstein shocks
  • Metal Cloak control arms
  • Currie Antirock
  • PU bushings almost everywhere
  • Bodylift for tummy tuck clearance
  • MORE motor lift
  • Teraflex tummy tuck
  • AA SYE + Tom Woods shaft
  • Rough Country steering stabilizer
  • Rebuild Dana 30 Front (still looking to upgrade)
  • Dana 35 with 30spline and ARB locker Rear
  • K&S Rock Crawler Bumper Front
  • Smittybilt Classic Rear Bumper with Class III hitch Rear
  • Rugged Ridge Roof Rack
  • 72W LED light bar
  • and some rust paint obviously...

Here it is... The Jeep Wrangler Special Edition "Apocalypse Rated"!



But as you all know: One does not simply finish building a Jeep!

I already have made some plans on CB radio, lights on the roof, jery can and hilift rack, roof basket with ladder and so on... I hope I will manage to update this thread frequently.

Can you please share more details about the lift?

The jeep looks very nice.

Regarding the lift... Here's a link to the german homepage: http://www.ks-tuning.de/www/Fahrwerk/TJKSFW.htm Ist the first lift kit on that page. "K&S Fahrwerk + 75mm"

The kit consists of 3" springs, Bilstein Shocks (tuned for TJ application), Johnny Joint Control Arms, JKS Disconnects, Angled Rear Trackbar bracket, bump stops and transfer case drop brackets. - It's surprisingly flexible for a short arm kit. The shocks perform quite well. (But I am looking to upgrade to some Fox or King shocks)

I got rid of the Johnny Joint control arms and the front sway bar got replaced by the anti rock. The drop brackets where removed when I did the tummy tuck. In fact there's not much left of the original kit.

The Metal Cloak Control Arms are really great. - Ride comfort is on a completely different level than with Johnny Joints.
