The light sleeper 2.0

Well I sold my old TJ for a new project. A 2000 Jeep TJ Sahara. Was a tough decision in selling my old jeep I loved that jeep and went through a lot with it. But after being offered the Sahara I got, I couldn't really pass it up. My old jeep was a 1997 TJ, nothing to special it was a sport model, Dana44, front locker, 33s, some accessories, currie steering and that was really it. I put a lot of work into but cosmetically it was just a pain. Since I DD my jeep I figured why not check out other jeeps. This thread is really to keep track of what I add to my rig.

I got the Sahara from my dads friend he bought it brand new in 2000, 120K miles, automatic, rear dana44, hard top, and in pretty awesome condition. Picked it up for a great deal so said why not.






Was never a huge fan of Saharas but I figured I could build it up pretty sweet.

Small list of my plan in no particular order

-Full 4" currie lift
-Bilstein shocks
-Rokmen BL
-Brown Dog MML
-CV shaft and SYE
-UCF ultra clearance skid
-Savvy engine skid
-Savvy GTS and steering box skid
-Currie steering
-BM brakes
-Naval cable shifter
-Chromoly axle shafts f/r
-4.56 gears
-Detroit front and ARB Rear
-some kind of tub mounted tire carrier
-winch number and winch
-Rockers
-35" mtrs

This build will take some time, maybe sooner maybe later. Some things might change but this is roughly what I'm looking at. I might get some 31" mud tires to wheel it like that but I'll see.

First thing I did was remove those jugs on the front bumper and detail the interior.



Should be getting some goodies this month.

Thanks. And I know haha. But whatever I'll be taking care of it.
Yeah it's an expensive goodie list but after my last jeep, I want to make sure my jeep is nothing but quality parts.

My radiator was leaking a lot.
So I bought a new one and installed it today.
Also got new upper and lower radiator hoses, and a new serpentine belt.

Didn't get pics of the install but here it is installed, also gave the engine a little love and cleaned it a bit.

Also bought a Rokmen 1" BL.






I ordered a Brown Dog 1" MML as well, just hasn't came in yet. Hopefully i receive it this week.

This is the first step for the tummy tuck, I will be ordering savvy rear upper CAs very soon as well. After that the skid will come, my goal is before the year ends.

Once the MML comes in ill install everything and post some pics.
A 1" lift is very exciting when your stock and on 30" tires

I haven't heard of anything bad about the brown dog one. My dads isn't bad anymore.
I was gonna get savvy MML but Gerald told me that the engine skid from savvy would not fit correctly with the UCF TC skid, so I just decided to do this one and get everything from UCF.

Most likely UCF, we got UCF TT on my dads jeep, pretty good I guess. If savvy had a UA for early year automatic TJs I would get that. But no signs of that any time soon.

Today I got my savvy rear upper control arms, I had the links for months from someone on Craigslist I think I paid 15-20$ for them. So I ordered the JJs for them Sunday and picked them up today. I really wasn't planning on buying them so soon, but it happened
So all that equals brand new rear uppers for under 200$!

Still waiting on my MML from brown dog, not really happy with the time it has taken them to get here. I ordered it the day I got my radiator and rokmen BL and all that came within a few days, the MML hasn't even been shipped hopefully it come soon so I can install all of it and get the TC skid for a tummy tuck.
