my build thread

well i started off with a 2000 jeep wrangler tj, i didn't even take a pic of it stock cause the 31x10.50R15's on cragar soft 8's came to fast lol.

Then i built a custom front bumper out of my sisters yj's stock bumper. And last winter the horrible happened, i rolled the jeep into a ditch. After i figured out i could fix it i bought a new windshield frame, new windshield, new fender, new windshield hinge, and new roll bar. I painted and did all the body work myself and got it looking good. Didn't take any pics cause i want to forget about it.

A few days ago i lifted the jeep 3.5" and put some 33's on it and this is just the start. I bought a powdercoating gun off of eastwood.com. i powdercoated my coils and my d-rings. This tool was very handy.

looks good. how involved was the powdercoating? if you take it offroad, you may want to look at removing the side steps.

powdercoating is actually pretty simple if you have a sandblaster, it's alot like painting, the more prep you do the better it turns out. and yea the steps are the next thing to go. i want to make a set of rocker guards for it.
