A little Steel Blue Build

The day I got it..... Changed my life.


First day with the top off, OCT 20th 2009....





Then Blacked out the side markers, painted around the headlights and took the milk jugs off.


Then it was time to remove the running boards
This shows how dark the side markers are





And now 4 weeks later this is how it sits.....






I got ceter caps and black lug nuts coming! What did Jeeps do without the internet!?!

I was at my parents house and I found a picture of my very first vehicle......
This picture was taken in 2000 back in WI.... the door was falling off and I still miss it!

Great looking TJ man! I need to paint my fenders too. Pretty faded and sun bleached.

As stated before, welcome to TN!
And MudDuck99 my girl is in Athens, so I'm down there quite a bit.

sweet looking rig, my first jeep was almost a steel blue tj with a budget boost and 32's with a hardtop. they sold it from under me, oh well. funny story that last pic reminded me of, painted my flares and they looked better than new. then two weeks later bought flat fenders and rear corners and took the flares off. oh well, chalk one up to body armor. welcome to the disease

Well, I think I'm at the point where the next thing is the lift, going with the RC 3.25" kit. now its time to save for lift and tires. Then some 33" tires.... keep it simple. It is my daily driver and all.

Switching from the silver decals to the black ones really brought it all together.
