Time to Reset... Razorback Rebuild

So I'm really thinking about starting a build thread and re-building my Jeep now that I'm a single guy again and no wife to tell me no I can't spend the money. I'm really debating on which lift to go with, but I'm sure that you guys will help me spend my money. I do know one direction that I'm going with and that is the Jeep is no longer my daily driver which gives me a little bit more slack on where I can go from here.

So my Jeep is a 2006 Sport that I bought in Feb 2008. It had 18000 miles on it and I picked it up for roughly 16K and it was bone stock with a D35/30 combo (really wish I knew what I was looking for when I bought it) I just rolled over on 55K miles

As it sits now or the things I've done to it so far is put D44's front and rear (wrecked 05 Rubicon) 3.5 Rubicon express springs, Rokmen Control arms, Rokmen Tummy Tuck and engine skid, TNT tube fenders front and rear (extended opening for the rear), Rock hard front and rear bumpers, 35 BFG's and a few other nick-nacks

I'm really thinking about going with a TNT lift or an AEV lift (long arm) (I know I might get flamed for going to long arm) but I haven't made up my mind. I do know I'm wanting to add a rubicrawler, cage, onboard air, and possibly go to 36 or 37 inch tires.....

EDIT>>>> Well plans have changed a little bit. I picked up a set of Pro Rock 60's so it changed up a little bit. I am still going long arm, but instead of going with TNT I am planning on doing a 3/4 link with coilovers.

The day I bought her


First lift (Rough Country 2.5) on 33's


Final lift (before fenders)


During Fender install




As it sits right now

I do want to shed a lot of weight. My jeep right now is so heavy with all the steel armor (sides and underneath) and go with some aluminum. I'm going to go with some beadlocks as well. I just haven't decided if I'm going to go with the Hutchinson Rock Monsters or the WE. Still completely undecided on which lift to go with though. And I've got 35 BFG's right now, but I'm thinking I'm going to switch back to Goodyear MTR's. Just paid for some onboard air tonight so those are the first of many parts coming this way.

The only think about redoing the rear corners is I did the strech and have already cut the tub to stretch and I'd like to find some lightweight aluminum ones that cover the same.

So I've spent most of the morning looking at parts, mainly sway bar systems. Trying to decide if the swayloc is worth the money or not. Also think I'm going to shead the Superwinch and go with a Warn.
