My 2004 Wj Build

So I'm going to update this as I get in and install things:

As of right now - stock




And so it begins 3-10-12'



4 inch iro LA kit with adjustable trackbar, steering stabilizer and jk quick discos.
I do believe I am missing one package that should come this Monday.
Now I have the lift I need to figure out the installation part. As I don't know much about working on vehicles this is far beyond me doing myself. Its either a wrenching party or a shop. Either way I can't wait to have it on!!!

Update 12-07-14 (Copy from pg2) I've been thinking alot lately about different stuff I want to do to my Jeep. Iv'e done alot of research and want to put it down somewhere. I'm going to document it here, going forward.Pretty soon I'll need do some trimming to run the new tires I'll be putting on soon. (Hopefully)

So curently running:
Busted JKS Quick Discos
4 inch Long Arm Lift Kit from Iron Rock Offroad (Questionable install)
Heavy duty Steering Stabilizer
Adjustable Track Bar
31s - 265/70/17 Hankook Dynapro Atm RF10s

Parts I currently have/need install:
Front tow hooks (Rear hitch also being added)
Factory front skid
New tires 285/75/16 General Grabber At2s

Future/upcoming:
16 inch rims - 4'' to 4.5'' backspacing - Black and steel are my only particulars
Custom bump stops to help clear new tires
Rear Sway Bar - Heard this helps alot with handling
3/4 Leveling Kit or 1 inch spacers to help clear tires? (Tentative)

Further future:
Rock rails/Sliders
Roof Rack
LED light bar

Do it yourself! (or with friends if need be) You'll be much happier and you'll know how to fix things yourself if you ever need to. Good looking wj by the way.

Well as long as I can get a wrenching party going - I don't have the knowledge or the tools to do it myself, thats for sure. Of course I'd love to learn though.

$400-$500 would buy you some pretty good tools to work with. They aren't as intimidating as everyone says. As long as the Jeep is from a non-salted road state it should be pretty easy to be off with the old and on with the new. Patience is the biggest thing to do it right. I have confidence that you can do it with help of the forum, internet, etc...stuff is so much easier to research today and you will know that it was done right. Autozone/auto parts stores etc often rent specical tools if needed. Good luck!

Lol thanks for the suggestions but theres basically no way I'm doing this myself.
I think I've got it figured out now anyway. Hopefully it'll go on next week.

^Just make sure you get one with springs not just spacers. Then its a good idea. And thats well below $700.

So nothing new lately...
Me and a friend tried to come up with a way to keep the sway bar from hanging down when its disconnected, as my kit didn't come with pins or anything like that to hang it on once its disconnected. It didn't work, so I'm still searching for a solution.

Its crazy how long I haven't updated this. Life has been crazy and I haven't done much with the Jeep since I threw the lift on. I've had air compressor for awhile now. I recently purchased tow hooks, which I want to paint black. Also picked up a factory skid plate from an overland. I need to get them both put on. I also just ordered some 33s, went with the General Grabber At2s. I'll be picking up some new wheels as well, with backspacing, which should give my Jeep a whole new look. I am pretty excited. I am pretty sure I will have to do some trimming to be able to wheel still. Heres a few recent pics of my WJ!
