My Slow Jeep Build

I bought my '98 TJ in November completely stock.. I do not have a picture but it was completely stock.. Since then i have put a 2" suspension lift and replace the tires and wheels with a set of 15x8 American Racing baja's and wrapped them with 31" Widetrack Baja MT's. and here is a pic with only those mods so far.. more to come!! let me know what u think!!

Trust me i hate the diamond plate and it will be coming off soon.. when i bought it, it was already on there.. i think the guy before mw put it there to cover up a rot spot, anyway, sa soon as i cut out the rot and replace it they will be gone. until then im just going to leave them on.. and on top of that, they r just stickers!!
