Ok so I figured I would start a build thread mainly to keep track of what I have done to my jeep. So to start off, I just got my first car at 16.5 and its a jeep. It took a long time to find one with fulldoors, a 4.0l, and a 5 speed. But we ended up finding one from someone we knew with very little rust at all. It is a 2003x with 165k on a 4.0 5 speed with 3.07 gears. It happens to be light khaki in color, which is growing on me, and it came with a tan-ish hardtop and fulldoors.
The previous owner had installed 31s on what I believe is aluminum alloy wheels. That is how it sat when I got it.
My goal is to log basically everything and to keep it organized
