So I started my jeep build a while ago. I had no Idea what JeepForum was. After finding it and asking a lot of question and searching through builds and discussions, I can honestly say that it has helped me more than I can even explain. So thanks members. I wanted to start my build thread to show other JF members just how much help this site can be. I don't have to many pictures but i'm planning a whole lot of upgrades in the near future so pics will be coming

This is my 1993 YJ 2.5L with 4.10 axles. It had a 3" shackle lift with 32" tires. It also had some really rusted out nerf bars that I had already removed in this picture. It had the tube front bumper also rusted out. I was pretty happy!!! I ordered a lift kit the same day I bought it. I got the RC lift that my buddy recommended, little did I know that I would regret that in the future.

After I put the lift on I would look at it and think something is missing. So I decided on a set of 33" Wrangler MTR's

I couldn't wait to hit the trails. I went up that weekend and played on some easy trails. I didn't want to break something all by myself.

Got these for myself for Christmas. I had to grind down the front of the frame to fit the bumper. I also used some spray on bed liner to paint the places I grinded down. I took the seats out and here'd the tub and put in a rugged ridge security stereo center console.

I noticed that I had a bent spring. That was all I needed to finally ditch this Rough Country crap and I ordered a set of fabtech 3.5" springs and got new shocks. I put in my Rugged Ridge center console and found a crazy wiring job on the stereo. Also put in my homebrew toolbox to see how it fit. I will herculine it to match the tub. I also got new brakes for the rear and new wheel cylinders and a new valve cover gasket. I will be doing my 8.8 soon so it sucked putting money into my D35 but I still want to drive it until the 8.8 is ready to go. Finally figured out that the PO ad put on a hack and tap SYE so I can take that off of my list of things to do.

It took me a little while to do the rear brakes but I got it done and finally learned how to replace drum brakes. I've never had to do it before. Fed ex drop off my hand throttle, hood scoop, and mirror movers. I got the hood scoop and mirror movers installed and need to put the hand throttle in. I think she is looking pretty nice so far.

Looks good bro. People like to bash the YJ's but I grew up wheeling in a 92 my dad built and it was a stud. He ran it up to over 300k miles and sold it still running strong. Love the build, keep posting.

It's wicked cold out and snowing so throwing in my hand throttle and doing my valve cover gasket is out of the question. So I took the KC lights off of my old bumper that were missing wires and pulled them apart. They look fine and I think I'm going to mount them to mirror movers. An idea I go from here on JF. Also my girlfriend found me this and said that it looked like something tat belonged on my jeep.photogrid_1390860677756.jpg

Oh and a quick update. I got a 4.0 TB on Ebay for $50. It should be here in a week or so. Finally see if it gives me a little more pep.
