Syd' Vicious 98 TJ Build

I have had the Jeep since August 08. I kinda went crazy making it look like the jeep i always wanted but realized after the fact that i missed a few steps. So now i am in the process of upgrading the drive train to handle the tire size.

This is how i got it.

Yea, i know. I bought it with the BL already on it. It's in the plans to take it off and replace with a 6.5" LA. The BL did make it easy to wire wheel and paint the frame though.
