ok i guess it time to start a build thread. my name is Vohn and im from Lafayette, La. ive had a couple of CJs but eventually made my way to a 98 TJ a few months back by trading a 1 ton CJ5 i had. the jeep was mostly stock when i got it with a some kind of 4-5" franken lift using disgusting drop brackets
here is what it looked like when i got it, im sure some of you will laugh because as some of you know, my twin brother (bmosing) also has a chili pepper red TJ.
Unfortunately, the PO removed the "Hillbilly" sticker before i got it!
i really hated the huge flares so after it being at my shop for 15 minutes i cut them.
So a couple of months after acquiring the TJ, i threw an aussie in the front and some 33" km2s my brother had lying round and went wheeling.
i found some weaknesses pretty quickly...my passenger side lower CA as it turns out had worn out the threads connecting the 2 halves and after one good bump it slipped right out which led to noodling my driver side upper
also, my power steering pump was destroyed so the first thing i did when i got back home was order a high performance pump from PSC and some new upper control arms. im going to use some non adjustable lower CA's my brother had lying around for now. as you can see its nice having 2 TJs in the family
