This is my second jeep as my first one is in a better place now and I would rather not talk about it. This Jeep Build may be a bit slow but I am on a high school budget and I would rather the build be slow and be built right.

Jeep Name: Sarah (running joke with my friends...)
Year: 2008
Make: Jeep
Model: Wrangler X
Trim: Sport 2 Door
Mileage: 40,000
Color: Silver

Some Upgrades that I have already have completed:
SmittyBuilt SRC front Bumper
Smittybuilt 9500 lbs Winch
Olympic Rear Bumper
Small Light Bar
Sun Top
Removable mirrors
New Top


The Day I got the Sarah 2.0 all stock


The Next thing I did was put the stuff from the first jeep on.

Then I took her to the beach


New top!!

New Diff Covers

More Pictures! Pictures are my faverote part of Peoples jeep build so expect a lot of them.

New Tires

After searching for the right tires for a good price scene my tires were in no need of being replaced if picked up 4 Nitto Terra Grappler 285/70/17 on some rims with a printable bead lock with only 400 miles on them. My dad wanted me to keep the 18 inch Sahara rims that I had on them but the price convinced him to get rid of them and the fact that I can sell the previous rims.



I did not think that I would like the yellow but it has grown on me so I am going to keep it for now. I think the yellow gives Sarah something that the gray jeep was lacking. I also think that the yellow make it look a bit eclectic.



Right now I am looking for rock sliders and was wondering if the other brands were worth 4x as much as stock Rubicon rails and how well cutting down 4 door rails to 2 door worked.

Any Input would be greatly appreciated!

Rubicon Rock Rails

Got a set of 4 door Rubicon Rock Rails for $100 off of CL. Got them home and cut them down to cover my pinch seam with an angle grinder and bolted them up.



Couldn't be happier with how to turned out. Sorry for the poor quality photos... will get better ones later.

I wanted to go offroading this weekend but doesn't look like mother nature has the same idea. So I will hopefully build a welding cart/table, JKS Sway bar disconnects and a oil pan skid! and I am looking to install a leveling kit over the break.
Any suggestions on what leveling kit to use would be appreciated.

11/24/14 Update

Thanks!!

This weekend I had to pull multiple friends out on different occasions and got to try my new tires out in the mud they worked great!

Here are some of the photos the other time I got called I did not get any photos because I was about to start raining again.


Those are 35 inch tires.


I don't know what thought it was a good idea to go mudding on a mud plane after a couple inches of rain but it was fun.



Tomorrow I am getting a spacer leveling kit it should add 1.75 inches to the front end. I may also get JKS sway bar disconnects and am still trying to decide on what shocks to get.

Are you ordering a spacer kit or buying one second hand? I have a 1.75" kit I'm not using I could make you a deal on

Thanks but I bought one a couple of days ago for $20 and installed it last night. Install went better than I thought it would. The auto part store only had shocks for $250 so I am currently searching for some shocks to make the jeep bounce much.

Before

After

On a side note I finished my first welding project.

I am still looking for disconnects and skid plates and I may go offroading this Saturday.
