So I graduated in December and was lucky enough to get a job, but I won't start July. So great, I'll just hunt and fish for the next six months, and work on my Jeep while I'm at it. Really what I want is a vehicle that can take me to any hunting/fishing spot, and be a practical daily driver. I'm holding back on making huge modifications until I can get another vehicle as a daily driver.
So after a couple of months worth of work, I've finally decided to make a build thread. I've taken a good bit of pictures a long the way, so I'll try to post them in the order that I did things.
I started off by replacing the clutch, which was toast anyways. So I thought why not, I'll put in a tummy tuck first. It will give me about 2.5" of clearance which is equivilant to going to 35's ( I was on 30" tires).
i found that the original transmission mount worked best for me as apposed to the lo pro mount. i bought the lo pro and the new skid at the same time, but decided against using the lo pro. i put a body lift and currie MML on at the same time.
well after all this work ive been doing, rebuilt tranny, new clutch, sye, a ton of other odds and ends, my pinion bearing decides to start going in the rear. blessing in disguise? i dont know. i wanted to replace the 35 with an 8.8. but a lucky craigslist find said otherwise.
