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.

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.

Christmas Update

I have not updated this in a while but I have installed 2 PIAA DOT approved lights and a CB radio. I got tired of seeing all of the wires running around in the engine bay so I decided to create my own switch and relay box.

The Switch and Relay box ended up Costing me about $125. It was well worth the money and time spend. I went with 4 relays with my 4 switches but the box could easily be modified to hold 6 in the future.

The Box took me awhile to build and install but well worth it.

Wiring to the battery I plan to heat shrink it once I get time just to clean it up a little. Sorry for potato quality.

I placed the hot wire for the two unused switches so that I would not have to go back and put that in at a later date.



I wired in the Cobra 19 DX IV into the ground and the hot wire going into the relay box.

I put in a 2 ft antenna so that I could still pull into the garage with it but will consider getting a larger antenna for trail use.



Future PLans: (Prefer to purchase from CL or Ebay)

JKS Quick Disconnects
Engine Skid and Control arm skids
Fumoto Oil Adapter
KC or LED cubes in the corner of the windshield
Exhaust
Hi Lift Jack mounted on the tail gate
LED Cube Back Up Lights?

This Summer I plan on working and getting some Body Armor and High Clarence Fenders to clear some 35 inch General Grapplers that is if my dad will buy in on geting 35s.

1/28/15 Update

This will be a fairly large update!!

To start I bought a Farm Jack for $10 it is not a HI-Lift Brand Jack and it is kinda bent on both planes from the previous owner having it on his jeep when he rolled it on multiple occasions. I think it gives it more character...


After some RR.

I think that I might Paint the handle red sometime.

Just a few weeks ago I bought the JKU Rubicon shocks and spring for $150 I read that some people got almost 3 inches of lift but I was looking for 1 inch.


Before I installed the lift kit I decided to do some drive way flexing.








When I disconnected the sway bar there was not nearly as much rubbing on the rear fender.

After the lift I got about 2 inches of lift from it and I am thinking that 2 inch lift and high clearance fenders I can fit 35s.

No Pics of the new lift yet sorry...

Today I also ordered the JKS adjustable front track bar and sway bar disconnects. I only Ordered the front track bar because it is pushed over 3/4 of an inch. Do I need to get one for the rear it is only over by 1/4 inch? also do I need new control arms? And should I put on one inch spacers?Thanks.

Long Update

I have not updated in a while but I have installed the new JKS sway bar disco and track bar both very easy and beefy. I also painted the fake bead lock red to match the shocks.

You can kinda see the red on the rims in this photo.


I also installed 2 flush mount LED lights into my rear bumper.


Here i the vinyl hood black out that I put on the jeep. It was much easier to install than I thought.


The is a trill jeep that I found with a great story and owner.


I also got a 2.5 ton aluminum jack for $99 that makes working on the jeep 100x easier. I plan to get some sort of selectable locker possible e-locker. I also plan on getting body armor and fender flairs to fit 35 inch tires.

New Jeep

So it looks like I may get another jeep as more of a toy. If this works out I may get a Tj rubicon to build as a offroad toy while my JK would be more of a DD or possibly sell it for a truck.
