A Visual Recap - Stock to Now
 
Well this isn't really a build thread, I was just looking on my computer and found some pictures of my Jeep before I lifted it and it made be chuckle, it looks so small! Hard to believe it once looked like this!

Her First Time Flexing:

She's Home! 2.5" OME, 1" BL, and some 33x12.50x15's! I Was The Happiest Person Alive:

I Hadn't Yet Been Offroad To Test Her Out So I Improvised With A Little Driveway Flexing...Again:

I Got A Little Tired Of Having My Spare Hang Off The Tailgate So I Removed The Entire Setup And Threw The Spare In The Back, I Am Starting To Miss This Look, There's Just Something About It....:

If You Notice In The Picture Above I Seem To Have Lost A Fog Light. Well That Happened While Trying To Pull My Friend Out, There Was Literally No Angle To Pull Him From And The Tow Strap Broke My Fog Light Off. Eventually A Backhoe Had To Come Pull Him Out:

Continued:
 
Since then I have added a few things here and there and most can be seen in the next set of pictures of some different offroading trips I've gone on. The list includes:

Skidrow Engine Skid
Kilby Steering Box Skid
LoD Rear Bumper/Swingaway
PSC Trail Stinger
Shrockworks Rocker Guards
Painted my hubs (no center caps)
LED Lights in my gauge cluster
Unknown brand seat covers
Olympic 4x4 Tube Doors

Alright so here are some pictures of various offroading adventures, she performs amazing well on trails and while there are definitely a lot more on the to-do list I am very satisfied:

Yeah man, I always liked the looks of your Jeep. Thanks for responding to my thread a while back. You convinced me to go white letters out. I love the way it breaks up the ALL black look of which I was getting tired of.

Haha thanks a lot man. Yea I've always been a fan of the white letters out for that same reason. Nice looking Jeep! :thumbsup:

Nice looking jeep man.

How are you liking the 2.5'' OME & 1''BL/MML, that is exactly what I think i want.

any issues with it so far?
Do you wish you went a bigger lift?
Did you have to do a SYE & CV drive shaft? Or just a transfer case skid drop?

Whats next on the list?

smithtime09 11-23-2009 09:44 PM

wow very sexy jeep. like how you've made it capable and kept it looking good

No regrets whatsoever on the kit. I knew from the start that I wanted to keep my Jeep relatively low so I went with a good kit the first time.

I am currently running 2 washers as spacers to cure the vibes which has worked very well for the time being but I plan on doing a TT so I will then upgrade to the SYE.

Next on my list if some tube fenders. My end goal is to be able to run 35's on this lift with a good set of CA's and a TT. :thumbsup:

Yea you'll be fine, the 3.73's with 33's isn't even that bad.

notoriousdoa 01-14-2010 11:47 PM

some BA pics man, especially the one in the water.

Toliver09 01-15-2010 01:36 AM

dont you think 5.13's are a little much overkill even for 35's?

honda250ex 01-15-2010 01:55 AM

yea that's what I thought, hey man stay posted for the lift:cheers2:

2006_Sport 01-15-2010 04:32 AM
