Project - Charlie Foxtrot !

Mainly doing this to keep myself a log/history of the Jeep. Just your average 2006 Wrangle TJ SE, auto, 4.0, 30/35 (3.73).

Picked her up earlier this year in Arkansas. Overall she's pretty clean, currently @ 56K on her. The main object (I'm sure will change as I learn) is to keep it clean, simple and low(ish). Quality parts will be key for myself as well. Trying to avoid buying twice if at all possible.



New top and love it!


Ripped all the nasty carpet out. (Raptor lining next year)

Finally getting started on the tearing down of CF.

Think I have a few things to put on! Once Metalcloak sends a replacement flare I can get the fenders,flares and HMF brackets off to powder coating.





Currently in the process of replacing all speakers with Polk DB521's and installing the sPOD this week.

sPOD is installed finally. Hope to have my speaker adapters from Crutchfiled on wed. and the speaker portion will be complete. Also rerouting the wires to inside the roll bar. If anyone is looking at the sPOD, you won't regret the purchase! Clean install and will help with all the add-ons down the road.





Hope to tackle the springs/shocks along with the BL/MM next week. Finally have my replacement flare from Metalcloak coming in this week as well. Getting the fenders, flares and HMF mounts off to powder coating soon hopefully.

This is one of the slowest builds it seems like! So far only have the BL on since last post. Also fighting the gas tank filler neck. Can't get it to extend since the BL, slowly working at it though. Removed the front fenders today to make way for the MCs. While I have such open access I'm going to do the MML, springs, shocks and sway bar end links!

So you haven't driven on the new springs/shocks yet?

I'm in the process of doing the same lift of 5100's and H&R springs, I'm really looking forward to it!

If only the 5100's weren't on National backorder right now lol

I've had a few set backs unfortunately. Works been stupid busy and my wife got into a accident (totaled her SUV). So I've been dealing with all the insurance BS on my days off. I'm trying hard to have it back up and running by the end of the month. Missed a ton of local trail rides!
