SUPER SLOW 2004 LJ Thread

Hey guys... So I'm like BRAND NEW to Jeeps. I just knew that I want one and my parents were lucky enough to pitch in half. Still in highschool so I don't make a ton of money and am trying to save some for college. Thats why this will be a slow build thread. My ideas on what I want to do are always changing and input on things you've had experience with like brands with certain parts would be appreciated. My entire jeep is stock. I have 31' all terrains which are staying on for a while. And an upgraded stereo. The only other "upgrade" I have so far is a full set of rugged ridge floor mats since i threw out my front carpets. They were just a nuisance. First things I want to do are buy a new rear bumper, don't know which kind yet. As well as a front bumper. (don't know what kind either). Then I plan on doing a tummy tuck as to get more clearance. From there I don't really know where to go... uhm i will be replacing my soft top as the one the dealership sold me with the jeep was actually broken I'm open to suggestions on that. And I definitely do want metal cloaks fenders. At this point I'm pretty much a fly on a terd and may change my mind on anything. That's why your guys input is so appreciated. Just uploading a couple of pics so you can see how stock it isSo... comment, like, subscribe, whatever! Can't wait to really get this thing going.

Looks good man! I see youre already having fun with it!

I see youre wanting to do a LCOG type of build with yours! with the metal cloaks youll be able to fit up to 35's on stock suspension which is nice! Looking forward to seeing where you go with this.

Im 16 and building a 2004 Jeep TJ so I know how you feel about the money!

First, congrats on owning the best Jeep ever built, LJ that is
Second, have fun with your Jeep and be sure to make it how you want and not others.... But do listen to those who have learned from experience.
Third, and just a personal opinion... But NO to the Metal Cloaks! They F'up the lines and do no look good! If you want Hi Lines then run a ROKMEN like in Janesy's build thread or a pre made like Poison Spyder's DeFender.... JMO
Anyway, good luck and I'll follow the build!

High lines only look good if done right. If you are running huge tires under them they look stupid. But that's just me, also with the MC's it adds some flare (pun intended ;p) to the front end.
