Hello and welcome to my Build Thread. First of all let me start with some history. All of my vehicle I have ever owned have been Jeeps, and I imagine they all will be Jeeps after. I got my first one when I was 15 a '87 Blue Cherokee Laredo my mom bought it after she blew up the Toyota Privia. Well she blew the motor on the Cherokee and my dad and I were rebuilding the motor but it was just taking too long and I needed a vehicle. By then I was 19 and had gotten my drivers license. About three months later in February I got a '90 Cherokee Sport, it had been thoroughly abused from the motor stand point but it ran well. I lifted it and drove it till I paid it off from the lady I bought it from. The tranny was going on it and the rear main seal was failing so I sold it, and bought my first wrangler. a '00 TJ sport. I wished the whole time I owned the jeep I had waited and bought a Rubicon. Well this summer I went wheeling with my friends in July and got totally sick of my jeeps capabilities. I decided to cut my losses and got for the Rubicon. I found one that I liked. So here I sit know. three months after I bought the Black Jeep Tag. I called him Tag because I tend to tag along after everyone in it. A lot of my friends have sports cars and I always go so much slower than then no matter where I go. Hence the name Tag. Well enough of this typing on with the photos!
Tag the day after I brought him home.
day two I had swapped wheels and tires. I never liked those Mickey Thompson Rims. There is a comparison
The next weekend (I work weekends so tuesday/wednesday) I decided to repaint the front and rear bumpers I saved from my other jeep. I had my brother weld the ICe fracture in the support so I would not have the same trouble. Words of advice do not loose the top cap on the Warn Rear tire carrier.
I installed them not long after that
I had to buy a new tonneau cover and bikini top and the half doors I bought and LOVE THEM!!!!
Finally sold these
I Installed my CB Finally! I have had it since march and never touched it
I installed my Air compressor and need to take some photos. I got caught up building my new replacement computer during all this.
I have a strong dislike for chrome on my jeep so I covered the last bit I had by Painting the Bezels
Stay tuned. I have a Warn M8000 Winch in my living room to install, Currie upper and lower control arms to get installed and the Curried HD steering kit. I also have to figure out (If its not either of those things) why when braking at speed my steering shimmy's. Not consistently either.
Future modification plans include. 35's, Long arms (possibly), Corner armor, tummy tuck, higher lift, Bed liner for convenience sake. Maybe the Currie Anti rock Sway bar. And one for the rear as well, that is intense when on the freeway. I am not liking the Skyjacker quick disconnects.
