Stacy an Austin Texas WJ build up.

well guys I have made it to the GC side of life, some of yall might know me some of you not, but I started out with an 01 XJ that was unfairly taken away from me in january 2010, I took the insurance money and bought a TJ, it was the biggest piece of **** ever, so I sold it for 6.5K and picked up my 99 WJ limited.

I'll have a few questions as time progresses but for now, here she is.



Specs:
99 WJ limited
4.7L V8
D30/ D44a
125K
black leather
all the bells in whistles
paint damage to rear driver quarter pannel.

paid 3k.

Plans:
TC swap Nv247 to Np242HD
4" RC lift (for now) later ill get the IRO 6.5 springs and a LA upgrade..
33x12.50xR15 KM2's or MT/R's
15" black steelies D-Windows or Soft 8's (over played I know, but I still love the look)
skids/ misc armor
Rock lights
tow hooks or some sort of other recovery
fix up paint and other stuff(ABS light, Airbag light)
Roof Rack w/ hilift/shovel mount and lights all around
Front/rear steel bumpers. (come on jeep, plastic covers really??)
lockers and regear to 4.10's.













So far I have polished out the head lights





and replaced my battery terminals.
