Since I finally ordered my lift not too long ago, I thought I should probably start my build thread. I don't care so much if it gets any attention. This is mostly for me to remember everything that I do and the journey that this rig will take me on.
I received this Jeep from my dad when I was 15 and he bought a new Chevy Equinox. He isn't a car guy, so he only did ordinary maintenance that he knew about (i.e. engine oil, coolant, brake fluid) but neglected the differentials, transfer case, power steering fluid. After receiving the Jeep, I didn't know much more than him. I decided, like any good new car buyer, to replace all of the fluids. While doing this, I also did some small mods to make it my own. Most were simply cosmetic changes. I am now a freshman at Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa. The Jeep, I call him Leeroy, is back at home just waiting for me. A few weeks ago, I orders a full 4" lift with adjustable control arms from Kolak and all of has showed up except for the lift itself. Because the Jeep isn't here with me at the moment, there probably won't be much going on here for a while.
What to expect:
I want my Jeep to become a great overall offorader. I don't want a trailer queen because I love to drive it every day. Basically, I'm looking for a pretty aggressive expedition rig.
I took Leeroy to the Badlands in Attica, Indiana over the summer with my friend and his ZJ. Here are some pics to hopefully tide you guys over until I get to work it. (probably not until Christmas Break)
Well my pictures aren't working so I'll try to get them up ASAP...
