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:



Her First Time Doorless:



Offroading For The First Time (Not anything real, could do everything in 2wd):



I Got Some Sweet KC Lights For The Windshield, Let The Mods Begin!:




A Little Nighttime Wheeling Session (came so close to getting stuck):



Took Some Pictures Of Her Right Before The Lift, Some Stock Flexing For Ya'!:




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




A Random Photo Session:




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:


























Hope you all enjoyed this little bit of my Jeeps history, if you have any questions feel free to ask!

John

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.

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?

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.

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