my 2.5 build up
 
i dont have any bone stock pictures unfortunatley but im gonna give this a shot anyway....

this is closest to stock pic i have....
no lift. my dad had an extra set of tires off of his 06 tacoma, so i bought rims that fit them. i also got a $100 grill guard and light guards front and rear.

next, i got my skyjacker 2 inch lift with hydro shocks, p265/75/r16 Trxus M/T tires.
i love these tires...

i also threw a sony gtx head unit in there, only because my awsome original tape deck(hahahha) only worked through one speaker...

My old stock soft top started to tear so i bought a bestop replace a top.

and also a pair of kc daylighters

nice build-up. a couple cans of black krylon fusion would do great on the hard top.

Sh4dowRac3r 02-11-2007 04:27 PM

LEDs showed up today!!!
just finished my gauges and i must say it looks f'n awesome..
although the pics dont show the true red color, it came out really good.

Where'd you buy the grill guard? I know nearly the saem one sells through 4wd, but theirs is like $140 plus shipping... any brand name or link to yours?

Your TJ looks great btw with such minimal modifications!

bro, i got the grille guard from quadratec for $99.97 plus shipping. i dont know if it was a special or not. its called the olympic grill guard. its so simple, but i like the look it gives my jeep

and thanx btw, but theres more mods to come.

cRRRis i found it for 105 bucks here http://www.quadratec.com/products/12101_32_07.htm

Sh4dowRac3r 02-16-2007 07:56 PM

well I added a whole buch of light guards, and personally i love the way they look. I may black out my headlight bezels, but i definatley want to paint my hardtop and upper doors black.

painting the bezels today, pics to come soon

Nice looking TJ :thumbsup:

Call me crazy, but I like the way it looked with the hard top before you painted it. Looked a little off since it's a black Jeep but it gives it a different look.
What'd you use to paint the top? I'm going to repaint mine this summer when it comes off

Sh4dowRac3r 03-04-2007 11:17 AM

i used semigloss rust-oleum
me and my buddy put his factory black top next to mine and you couldnt tell the difference

Sh4dowRac3r 03-12-2007 11:03 PM

Looks really nice. I have a 00 SE that I've been building up also. I'd recommend hitting the flares with krylon fusion flat black. It will make a world of difference. Thats what I did with mine.

Sh4dowRac3r 03-26-2007 01:19 PM

soft top back on for the summer, er spring. lookin into some olympic 4x4 rectangular nerf bars. it just seems like theres something missing on the side of my jeep. it looks so plain...
