Search and Rescue TJ

Starting a build thread for my partially set up TJ. It is a 2001 with a 4.0 with 33 12.50's and a true 2in lift. She has 142,000 miles and has had a new clutch, clutch master and slave cylinder, K&N cold air intake with a throttle body space and a Jet chip. Still learning so bear with me. If anyone has already set up a TJ for search and rescue feel free to post pics of your setup or ideas.
List of planned mods:
  • HID Front lights
  • BAJA style light bar
  • Viair Constant Duty Air On board air system
  • Rear stinger tire carrier by poison spyder
  • Long arm lift kit (Need input on this please)
  • New tires (Need input on this please)
  • Winch
  • Front bumper or stinger
  • HID head lights
  • Jeep pc
  • Emergency Flasher System
  • Rocker guards
  • Soft 8 wheels
  • Snorkel (Idk about this one)
  • Recovery/Rescue kit (First aid, blankets, water, flares, ect.)
  • Rock lights
  • Front and Rear Air Lockers
  • Dual Battery Setup
  • On-board Power Inverter (1500 Watt)
  • Front and Rear D44's
  • Scuba Gear :P

I'm working in the direction of building a zombie appoclypse vehicle... which to normal people who don't like the pop culture would be considered a search and rescue vehicle. I'll watch this build every now and again to see what you end up doing. I say start buy packing it with recovery gear first and for most, because all of it can serve multiple purposes for a rescue situation.

If it uses spacers it must be a 2'' BB lift. for a 4inch lift you need coils and other stuff. anyway I'll wait for the pictures to be shure

UPDATE - So me and my 3 of my friends managed to install the rear corner guards and the tube fenders in 10 hours lol. I purchased them from Smittybuilt and i hate to say it but i wont be purchasing from them or any of their products ever again. At a first glance the parts looked amazing and had great quality. After trying to line up the corner guards with the factory tail light holes we quickly realized that the corner guards were off by at least an inch. We solved this by zip tying my tail lights on and drilling new holes for the bolts. Hoping for a little more luck on the tube fenders we began to cut on the fenders. The driver side fender went on with little to no trouble but the passenger side was another story. We had to trim a lot off of the original fender and even the battery tray to get it to fit none of which Smittybuilt mentioned to do in the instructions. Once i can get the pics from my friend they will be uploaded as soon as possible. *Side Note* I'm not sure if it is because my taillights don't have the factory screws or if we plugged something in wrong but every time i hit my brake pedal my dashboard and gauge cluster lights come on. Any ideas? Also it is confirmed i have a "True Two" inch lift.

Here is a few of the build pics>>

This is the final product. It got dark so we couldn't take pics of all angles. Me and my friend were going to go to a local construction site today to take pics of his yota and my jeep but a cop followed us and flicked on his lights as soon as we pulled in. :P No tickets though, just a warning. We will try again some other time.
