my 3year project became a 6month project

I was suppose 2 do this in 3years, instead it turned out to be a 6month project.

1st pic is where she was just after I brought her home, 2" polypuck lift w/ 29"street tires, 4.0L, 5speed

2nd pic is put 4" SL on (yes, the rear pucks are removed now)

3rd pic is paintin the jeep w/ rustoleum truck+bed liner, doin new brakes, stainless steel bumpers, LED front turns, minor electrical, misc stuff

4th pic is new geolanders for jeep

5th pic is new mega short SYE/CV shaft, Mickey MTZ, Mickey classic, poison spyder decals, and my custom flat fenders (cost me $20 to make).

I have to finish painting under the flares and the rockers and I am ready 2 rip.

This is where I have 2 come to the conclusion that it is time to stop adding to the jeep, cause it is a non stop building process.

You should do something about the bumpers. They kill it.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

i don't really care, but i will warn you now, every time you post a picture with the bumpers in it, you are most likely going to get flamed. Just be ready.

Hey we all do agree a jeep is all about freedom. Freedom to do what you like. Looks like you have made it special to you and that is what counts.

IMO If something strange jumps out in front of you those bumpers may be your best friend.

Enjoy your ride.
