my 98 Sport 4.0

Picked up my Jeep a couple of weeks ago.

Here's a pic from the day I got it.



After some cleaning under the hood.



Had a 2" body lift, 33" BFG AT's and some dust in the spring perches that was at one point 2" coil spacers.



New plugs, wires, cap and rotor which was needed since 2 of the plugs were platinum II's



Came with a hard top and a half soft top.

coming from the Mustang, I've always gotten great service and pricing from American Muscle so when I found out that Extreme Terrain was also a Turn5 company I decided to get in touch with them for some stuff that I was lusting after.

MBRP Catback was the first on the list.



Then I noticed all the cool stuff offered under the Barricade brand. Since I'm going to be using my Jeep for mostly on-road with some trail riding and Uwharrie trips, I wanted to be prepared for whatever.

I also picked up a 4" rough country lift from a friend of mine and installed that along with a Terraflex adjustable front track bar.









Barricade Trail force HD front bumper and rock sliders added. These seem like really solid pieces. Winch and rear bumper are on the way.

Next is an SYE and Olivers custom driveshaft.

Thanks for looking.

Jeff

Installed some Raxiom lights today.



Size on the windshield ones is about perfect. Can't hardly see them from inside.



I also installed the Barricade rear bumper and tire carrier and their 12k winch. Both really solid pieces.

Just wrapped up the SYE, DC shaft, Advance adapters TC shift bracket and Rock Krawler upper adjustable Control arms install this weekend. Man, it's like a new Jeep. No more vibrations under acceleration and I swear it actually rides and handles better.
