Project 50/50: a TJ build

I recently purchased a 2000 TJ sport, and since ive had it ive done small things to it, but being new to the forum and starting to actually build it, i figured its now time to start a build thread. When i bought the heep the po had 32s and a 2.5" BDS lift (which i plan to keep the lift) but that's it. 110xxx miles and no rust which is strange being a Michigan jeep!! and it drove an ran great! i wanted to build this one to be a dependable DD and also be able to go adventure the trails whenever iam not working!

So far ive added a warn 8000lb winch which i got for a killer deal of 65$ and i rebuilt it due to a bad motor. also added:
Delta quad bars
Cobra CB
highlift
Warn 3.5 fogs
PSC trail stinger (not installed)
steering box skid ( not installed)


upcoming:
HP d30
ZJ tie rod upgrade
ford 8.8 with artec truss
MCE flex fenders (maybe highlined)
big daddy aluminum rockers
PSC aluminum corners
35" tires
and some more random things will be happening to the heep to

so those are my plans for the next couple months since its still winter and my shop is snowed in! and most of the work will be done at my work until warmer weather comes back! ill have pics coming from what the jeep is looking like now and when i bought it!

well i got the seats and locker installed last week and man what a difference that locker is! took a trip to the pigeon river area yesterday and climbed some hills and found a couple rock climbs over all, the aussie locker is a great investment!
