I live in Niskayuna NY and not many people here have jeeps. They tend to buy the ritzy ritzy stuff instead of getting their fingers dirty. To each their own I guess. I work at two jobs and barley make enough to keep myself going so it is hard to put a lot of money in the jeep. So that’s why I call her baby steps. I do what I can with the little I have. Doing little by little to make her my jeep. And I’m proud to the date of what I have done. All my self (and my dad or friends) all proud to be apart of the jeeping world. She is my second YJ, and im still keeping the love for jeeps strong. I don’t do a ton of roading but I do it enough and I love every second of it!
Ok let’s get this going.
When I first bought her. Totally stock, 4bannger with a 5speed. 180XXXmiles on her. No rust build from the ground up and ready to rock. Rolling on stock tires and what not, but I didn’t think to take a picture.
The first thing I decided to do was upgrade tires and rims to 30” Hercules M/T and some newer jeep rims.
The second thing I decided I had to do was put some fog lights on, didn’t matter where just needed them.
After a while I didn’t really like where I installed them, so I moved them to this place, much safer on the lights.
After moving the lights I needed a kick bust stereo for it, I love music and I swear id do what it takes to make it my life. So I installed and wired this pioneer head unit myself.(cant find picture but it inside the jeep trust me
After all wired up and ready to rock, I needed a center consol, so I bought ammo case (as seen on this thread) and am using that as my cent consol now. I love showing people that part of my jeep was in the war. thank you army navy.
I found this when I bought the jeep under a seat it was a roll cage light mount, which didn’t mean much to me till I FOUND a 4D cell MAG-LIGHT in a snow bank. I had to through it on I have used it so much.
Recently I removed my tow hooks, and my lights to install a grill guard I got off Craig list for 1c note.
Totally worth it.
after the new grill guard i took my doors off for a little riding,
and found an old bike in the woods and it had a mirror on it...so i took it and it seemed to fit in the hindge. so now its street legal.
That’s just about all I have done right now. To be done in the next couple days, krylon fusion textured black over the grill guard and bumper, new tow hooks, and possibly rear light guards. So yeah ill keep posting if nothing more than to keep a track for myself.
