MC_NickP's black TJ build

hey guys. decided it was time for me to do a condensed build thread.
i bought the jeep in october of '08. i dont have any pics of when i first bought the jeep, but i do have some pictures after i put on some kc daylighters and a euro style brush guard, and some side steps.


then i bought some black rims, bought a replace-a-top, painted the fender flares with krylon fusion, and bought an oil pan skid plate from another member on here. over the summer i put on the rc 2.5" kit, but i still had 30's





and took it flexing for the first time with the homemade quick discos




keep in mind i still have 4.10's, and dont plan to regear for sometime, if ever.

the 30's looked awful. i bought some rock rails from another member on here, and found 4 33's on CL for 160 bucks.





at this time i had the TC drop, and bought the browndog poly MML.

i also bought a rampage tire carrier and bought a spare 33



in the summer of '09, i took off and sold the eruo brush guard and stock bumper and bought a stinger, financed from selling my KC's:

then i bought an aussie which i threw into the d35, then read the horror storys, removed aussie from d35, sent back to qtec (who refunded my money after the locker had been used), bought one for the d30, and a cover for it. i also took out the carpet, and bought a RR 8.5k winch



i bought a 50 dollar cb radio from radioshack, and found a great deal on an antenna at the local flea market


yesterday i decided to take out the seats, went to lowes and found a no-slip deck liner for aluminum decks. so i said what the heck, sanded the tub down, and rolled two coats on. now i am waiting for it to dry. i'll put the seats back in on monday

update: well the deck liner is holding up pretty well, but where my feet operate the gas and the clutch, the "paint" is gone. well i got some new 33's and a super 35 kit from qtec and had it installed!

but i replaced the allen wrench bolts with some real ones. the cover doesnt match up perfectly, but you can get all the bolts in then torque them all down.
