So, where we go from here ?
Here is what I'm currently working on:
1- Body and Armor
The AEV Kit will be delivered on 15th of March 2012. I just can't wait to get my hands on it
I still haven't decided on what color I should pain RB...
I'm thinking about painting it with a mix of "matte titanium glossy gray" for the body and argent for the hardtop, and fenders..
I'm also thinking about using flat green instead. Or go with a non Matte flashy colors (like red
Too many options, I can't decide yet ..
I'm really open to suggestions.. I'm looking for something unique but without overdoing it.
I'm also planning to get Mopar Rock Crawler Bumpers for the front and back. I guess that this is a standard for any Highline build..
I'm sure that I want to change the front bumper. But I'm not very sure that I want to replace the rear one. I guess that I will judge that after fitting the spare tire on my Jeep.
I decided to go with an AEV Tummy tucker as well. I already have SYE and driveshaft. So this should be easy.
I'm replacing my rear lights with Savvy LED ones and I'm planning to do few other things from here and there. We will see as things starts moving.
2- The drivetrain and Upgrade
I'm not looking for extreme power and I do believe that reliability comes first. Therefore, I decided to go the stroker route. An order for a Golen 4.6 stroker engine has already been placed.
After reading this topic
, I decided to rebuild the nv3550 transmission and I'm ordering a rebuild kit very soon.
Regarding the transfercase, My current one works just fine. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to keep it or replace it with Atlas 4 instead.
If I'm ever going with the Atlas Plan, then I'm buying the (1:1, 2.0:1, 2.7:1, and 5.4:1) gear ratio version..
3- The Suspension Upgrade
I'm at loss here. I didn't image that NOT lifting the Jeep can be tricky as there are lots of clearance issues.
I know that I want Savvy/Currie JJ Aluminum arms and Steering components. But I haven't decided yet on the sway bar and shocks. I might delay this until I'm finished with the body and engine..
