OK, here is my build thread from its meager student beginnings, to take further bounds in the future.
Here is the Jeep as I got it in 2008. Bought it from an older lady. Paid by myself as a freshman in college. 4.0L Sport with D44 rear 5spd.
Immediately got it muddy and wheeled it. Decided I needed mud tires. Slapped on some worn 31"x10.5"x15" BFG M/T's with canyon rims, Craigslist special for a steal, 150$. Took the doors off and added mirror brackets. A few more small mods.
Rhonda is well used and well loved. She is in need of some TLC and will have it with some money after I graduate college this May and before my Army training kicks into gear.
Mods in this order:
My gears are starting to grind in 1st and 2nd, and I've been told, and think that means a new clutch for my 5spd. Full tune on the docket. I keep all the fluids checked regularly, just need some cash for this fix.
I want to run 33's. It's still my DD for now, and i cant go too crazy yet. I'd like to run 33"x11.5" or 33x12.5" (Your opinion?
), 3.75 backspaced black steelies, and 2.5" suspension lift. I'd keep stock gearing for the time being, and would most likely go to 35"s some time in the future anyways, so wait until then.
I'm a fan of the new MT/R's and would consider them.
Any thoughts or comments are appreciated. Suggestions, or links to similar builds would be nice, I am a busy student and in the MD ARNG, so not a ton of time on my hands to to searching for everything. Money and mods will come this summer. Thanks for taking a look.
