Noob Build
Well for the past ten year (I am only 25) I have owned 4 Jeeps and had 4 extremely mild builds. After my recent build up of my XK I decided it was worth it to buy a a real Jeep.

It was fun, but body damage sucks on the minivan:rofl:

Next was the purchase of the TJ.

Had a great start, but a long way to go

The garage was starting to look sexy. Then the tranny died in the TJ and killed all the upgrade funds.

First upgrade was getting rid of the dented up diff covers. They were both leaking.

this was the crap that come out of the rear suspension. Everyhing was destroyed. Out 5100s at all 4 corners and replaced the bent control arms with some cheap solid tube arms. Not sure of what direction the rear suspension is going so cheap was good.

Testing out the flex on the RTI ramp. Great to have shocks that are not seized up and bent. Also installed a RE HD track bar. Not everyones favorite choice, but it fit the budget. Helped with the DW, but did not fix it.

Found some beadlocks on groupbuy and could not help myself. Always wanted them and they are were well worth it.

Ran it in the parade for a good cause.

Bed lined the interior. Not perfect, but it is a hell of a lot better than silver paint

Spiderweb Shade after F'ing up the soft top on a tree

Plasti dipped the grill for the hell of it.

Got some new steering

Holaday 07-21-2012 10:47 PM

steering installed.

Savvy Gas tank skid to replace the Skid row skid. should gain about an inch and a half and lose 30 lbs in the rear.

Also ordered the Currie Anti-Rock.

Trying to decide on a front bumper now.

Holaday 07-21-2012 11:34 PM

Ordered the Savvy front bumper today. Need to lighten the pig up

Picked up a Hydrolic winch for cheap. Not sure if I am going to flip it or use it. Anyone have experience with these?
Savvy Gas tank skid. Really looking forward to geting this put on next weekend.

New Alloy USA shafts.

ARB installed and the pump comes in Monday. Hopefully will have it installed before heading to Wa****a next weekend.

ditch the hydro, go with an electric. the last thing your steering pump needs is something else to be pushed

Holaday 07-26-2012 04:49 PM

Cool thanks man. Going to do the V8 Durango swap down the road. I appreciate the advice.

Flipped the winch and made $50.00. Now on the hunt for a used Warn. Recieved an email from Savvy that the front bumper wont even ship for another 1-2 weeks. Sucks.

Hopefully the ARB compressor comes in before this weekends trip to the rocks.

The time now is 05:17 AM.
