Project 31: A 2002 TJ Build
Well, I've always enjoyed build threads, and now that I've finally started upgrading my heep I figured I'd start my own. Hopefully you guys will enjoy it.:2thumbsup:
Anyway, my plan is to build the most badass, most capable Jeep on 31's thats possible. It's my DD, and with gas prices being as rediculously overpriced as they are in California, I really can't justify going bigger, especially since the Jeep has accomplished everything I've thrown at it with 30" H/T's.
This is what I'm starting with: bone stock 2002 TJ Sport, 64k, 4.0, 5spd, D44 Posi rear.
Only thing I've done up to this point is repainting the fender flares and painting the headlight bezels.
Playing around a little, still stock...
First big step...31's, made my front bumper into a shorty, removed the little side flares
Close up of the 31's...Firestone Destination M/T's...they are amazing.
Also got a pair of Riddler diff covers, and an OME steering stabilizer
Took off the rear tire carrier and license plate bracket as well.
Well, that's it for today. Tommorow I'll be painting my wheels black...
Banks Monster Exhaust
JKS tie rod
Nth Tummy Tucker
Homemade true CAI
Very cool Jeep :thumbsup:
Its about time this section needed a new build thread to follow :D
only got the front 2 wheels painted today, turned out to be a lot more work than I thought it would be. I think they turned out pretty well though...not as good as $100 powdercoating, but pretty well none the less.
Just curious since I'm going to be looking for tires soon, what did those run you at?
BTW, are you running a spare at all?
They were $140 each at the local Firestone...payed a hair under 700 for 4 of them mounted and balanced.
Not running a fullsize spare at the moment...
Not bad at all, I might consider those, I like 'em. Keep up the progress, the Jeeps looking good man!
Finally got the wheels done today...
I think my next update will be the exhaust...but I think I'm gonna go with a Flowmaster Super 40 just cause it's so much cheaper.
just some food for thought v8 zj tie rod is a cheap junkyard upgrade alternative to one like the jks you mentioned,
looks good lucky you got a d44 w/ a posi, i've got a d44 but no posi :( i miss doing donuts
The Firestone M/T are a great tire.
dude... i lost the game not cool
