Texas Rubicon

so, I have been contemplating making a build since I haven't really done as much as other have to there Jeeps, but here it goes.

hope you all enjoy

Here it is the first day I got it

It came with a tired and worn 4" Teraflex lift springs, stock control arms and sway bar disco's. 33" tires and some cool wheels. hard top and full doors

Nice looking Jeep. I agree, those are some cool wheels. What are you planning to do to it?

well I really didn't like the soft and soggy suspension


so I looked around and got a good deal on a Rubicon express 3.5" superflex lift










I also ordered up a JKS 1.25" body lift a a JKS 1" motor mount lift

I am really happy with the out come I just cant wait to get back home and actually take it out.
My parents really like driving it..lol





My dad and my uncle

They helped me out on this alot. since I came back to Korea, my uncle and dad put on the flares and the soft top for me,they also installed the headlamps. They were a big help with the RE lift and the mml/bl combo.
Just last week my mom took it to get the AC flushed and refilled. I cant thank them all enough.

not bad for a 19 year old who is away from home, and 5 other projects going on, I got a 73 blazer, 73 jimmy, 82 blazer, 74 3/4 ton long bed, and a 78 half ton long bed. and Only 3 of those actually run and drive.hahaha

I would get all crazy and build one bad Jeep, but I like staying busy
