hey guys, well its time to start the build thread that i have been wanting to start ever since i joined the forum looking for a Jeep.
First off im a 17 year old high school guy just trying to learn about cars and jeeps so forgive me if i mess some terms up and stuff, anyways...
I just recently picked up a 2006 LJ 6-speed with 74k miles with some mods already on her. mod list is:
rough country 6" lift
35" bfg all terrain
15" black steelies
smittybilt rear bumper with tire carrier
Smittybilt SRC front bumper
so it has a decent amount of mods but i will be changing out and selling all of those parts accept for the rear bumper and tire carrier probably.
well here is my plan...I originally fell in love with LJ's when i saw Lo2ay's LJ so i wanted to build similar to his. i dont have quite the budget but it will have the same over all idea.
Highline fenders (not aev, DIY mod)
dark grey paint (still undecided exact paint)
17" mickey thompson classic lock powder coated black and ring will be color of jeep
35 or 37" goodyear mtr (still trying to decide on the tricky setup to run 37s so might stick with 35s unforunetly for now...
Banks cat back exhaust
3" aev springs
bilstien 5100s (Still not for sure)
and then axles are still up in the air...i want to do jk d44 axles but im not quite sure if i can afford, its tight to fit that in my budget and i have a feeling i would go over budget with those axles. so i might just do a tj d44 front for now.
so thats the plan. i wont start on the big stuff for a couple weeks til my Dad gets home. the highline will probably be the first major mod and then everything should come quickly after that.
