Terra/Terror the Magnificent XJ college build

I've been a member for a while but never made one of these but I figure better late than never.
Cant find any pics of her right after i got her but here she is with just 235's about 2 weeks after i bought her:

Next came the RE budget boost my AAL is from:

After that I bough my god awful embarasment of a Brush gaurd off of craigslist:

Then came an equally awful CL roof rack (which has since been torn apart and used for tons of different projects so not all bad):

After that I wised up and took all the grossness off:

I got bored so the next step was a new, better looking roof rack:

Then my JCR bumper:

Then 31's

Then finally the Coils and shackles:

Bushwackers in:

Rusty's rear bumper:

Knucklebone and slightly more suspension lift:

I will be keeping better track now that I have this thread. pretty interesting to see this evolution

Thanks man! My goal is to keep it fairly stock. I will probably be pulling the carpet soon though... It's just gross

Bedlined the floor of the back. Next step will be the back of the seat!

Finished the back of the seat. The color is a lot more even now that its totally dry. The top is smooth now too, i finally had time to sand it. I also kept the carpet to keep a sort of bed rug.

Love this Jeep man!

You should look into building disco's out of 1/2" heims, I put my setup together really cheap and absolutely love it. Pull a pin, swing em up on the keepers and put pin in there, done.

Whats the future mods you have planned? Expediton themed build maybe?

And as for the future, It is an expo build, The mods that are close enough to mention will be an air compressor to move in forever to accommodate a set of air shocks in the back to help balance large amounts of equipment and people as well as a set of monotube shocks up front. I'll be throwing some silver paint on the wheels to make them look all nice again. eventually I would like some bushwackers

Painted the wheels with a darker metal to prevent rust and a little bit for asthetics:
