-Sarge's- Build

So I've had my '99 wrangler for about 7 months now and he's come pretty far. Its my second TJ and second car. I guess you can say I caught the Jeep bug.

I haven't yet made a build thread because I never really thought my Jeep was worthy of one and I've been keeping track of it with Instagram. After looking through some of the other threads I said who cares... so here it is!

This is Sarge the day I bought him


Then the build started pretty much right after that.
Right away I threw on my OR Fab front stinger, fog lights, and plastidipped the grill black



Next was the stereo upgrade! (also have a 10" sub and amp behind the back seat)



At this point were about a month into the build.


For graduation my neighbor gave me a CAI from K&N. Don't hate! it comes out later



Swag Offroad Big Hit Bumper




Banks Cat Back


Led Tail lights and Dash



Sometime around here I decided to toss my man card and try to make my own Cargo net sides... I have since finished tem but havent got to try em out since the hard tops now on again


Rock sliders came on


Set up a Keyless Start system... I have a seperate thread on this


Hood vent from PSC and then windshield KCs




Next up rear Fenders and a BL/MML.


2" Budget boost and some 35's I picked up cheap


Rancho 5000s



NOW HERES THE SUCKY PART:

Rolled Sarge at 2am after a lot of DGAFing and a breakup. You can probably guess that was quite the setback... This was about 4 months into the build and a week before school started back up. I ended up having to leave Sarge at home for the first couple weeks since my new windshield frame order got messed up and didn't come in on time.



Heres the CCFabs 3" Hoodlines I installed during the rebuild. (I already had them. Was just waiting on the powdercoater)


Heres when the new windshield frame came in and and got glassed


At this point we fitted the hard top back on which was a PITA because of my bent roll cage. I drove Sarge up to Cal Poly and introduced him to my four wheeling club.

I then Threw on some home-brewed sway bar links


Crawled up my first Jeep on the next visit home to check clearances and rear bumpstops. I ended up replacing my front brake lines because of this


Gosh this is taking forever

Okay lets see went wheeling with the club at Hollister Hills and Bent my Tie-rod. Got replaced with the ZJ setup


Okay now were getting into the recent stuff. I ended up doing a cowl intae with the windstar airbox...


At the same time I installed my China-made Rock lights

Okay heres how he sits at the moment.


And a couple days ago I grabbed a UN-BENT stock roll bar for a 100 buck from a fellow jeeper. Ive need working on drawing up a roll cage and heres what I came up with



The roll cage is gonna have to wait until next quarter though. The stock bar is still at home and I dont plan on visiting back for another month.

Here's a roll cage I put in a customers drag car last Summer. Came out pretty good so im really looking forward to caging mine

Lets see... At the moment I'm waiting on a set of hood pins to come in so I can Highline the front fenders. Getting kinda nervous about this part. It'll be nice to take on a big project that doesn't cost much though thats for sure.

Feel free to shoot me any questions. I pretty much check Jeep Forum on the daily. If anyone's interested my instagram is @sarge_sahara99
GEEYYYYYYY I know

Looks pretty good for having a roll over man. Always had a soft spot for the TJ Sahara editions. One of the better appearance packages they ever put together if you ask me.

Thanks! Some of the best builds come from rolled jeeps. That's what I kept telling myself after the rollover ha

Hey all! Here's an update to get my mind off of life... I put in that unbent roll cage!

Let's see, also got a transmission cooler to keep that cool while offroading all day in the heat. Didn't grab a picture of that though. I may snap one tomorrow. Pretty weird I feel like the transmission has been brought back to life. It's started to shift more frequently. Sometimes when not necessary.

Got a Race radio to mount next to my CB. My offroad clubs chooses to use these instead of CBs so I was forced to get one. Pretty dang satisfied with that

Threw in a PA speaker so I can go into ****** mode if I ever feel the need

Sold my front bumper to a buddy and bought poison spyder's comp stinger... That looks damn good

image-2423441211.jpg

Also switched from halogen aftermarket lights to CREE LEDs. So far pretty happy with them. Have a spot set for the windshield and a flood set that will be mounted facing the rear.
Today got my 20" led bar too. Welding some light tabs onto the frame tube to mount that as soon as possible. My friend with the welder though is out of town. Here's a pic of it balancing in place

image-1203655451.jpg

Recently put my cargo net sides on the jeep as well. They turned out pretty good I'd say

image-3923792250.jpg

Besides that I finally got my hoodpins... I'll probably put those in next weekend or sometime soon. Excited to get those done so I can start planning my highline. Cage and highline are the next things on the list!

Nice build so far! Drag about the roll over, but looks like you recovered nicely! Maybe we'll see you at Hollister some time. Some of our group is going up there this weekend, but sadly I can't make it.

It's possible! Our club usually just goes once a year but if they plan another I'll definitely be up there.
