The Slow College Build: 99 TJ

Last February my parents and I realized that my mustang was falling apart piece by piece and slowly dieing away. We traded it in for this 99 Chili Pepper Red TJ, and here's how it was the day we got it:


First thing I did was get a CB Radio, seen here:



Next, and what saved my Jeep once when alot of dried brush caught on fire on my skid plate was the fire extinguisher:


Here's how it sits today:


Planned Upgrades when I can work this summer:
-3.25 RC Suspension Lift
-Cragar V5's
-Fix the HUGE hole in my driver side floor (Not a drain hole, a rust hole I could fit my fist in)
-Fix the crach in right passenger floorboard
-Monstaline it! I have the liner, need to fix those rust holes.

Planned upgrades for the future:
-D44 Swap
-Regear
-33's
-Front and Rear bumpers + tire carrier.

This build is going to take a long time, but I'm looking forward to every minute of it.

Thank you I appreciate it. I've been here some time and finally decided to do a build haha. When I get the lift I'll be sure to post a butt load of pictures.
