VTJ College Build

HOW IT STARTED


MOST CURRENT


plan to keep this thread a lot easier to go through, not much talk, lots of pictures

Should be lots of wheelin pictures too

Started off gettin this from my dad with like 26k miles in high school

started off with 33 dunlops and lots of chrome

started taking the shiny stuff off and making it more capable. Lots of bling, i like nice parts, and want to keep it clean, and as a functional DD (dont we all)

Here is the picture after my 3" body lift
SO GLAD I DID THAT



I think this was my first trip out with some buddies



got an RC 2.5", ive had it like 2 and a half years now and i love it! it flexes pretty damn good, the shocks arent the best (wrong length? ride poorly)



Post lift with some clear signals in there



My first Poison Spyder purchase, if only i knew it was addicting



Got this for christmas, some more black and then black lights



Filled in the front end a little bit, Warn M8000 and the hellas on there



figured it was time for some new tires?



Meats



Fresh 33x12.50 KM2's, always loved this picture!



All cleaned up for prom haha funny watchin my date get into this



Poser



Got this from beserk? Groundpounder Fab, this thing is SOLID, has held up real well and wasnt ungodly expensive



and Zach's Sliders (AtoZ) he hooked me up and these things are solid, have held up to a lot, i even kinda slid into a tree and landed on rocks, theyve held their own.



Installed



after moving to school in the mountains, i totally hate mud with a passion

Future Plans:

bunch a little stuff i finally am getting around to do (3rd brake light, side marker lights, hooks up front etc..)
find build Rubi 44s (geared, shafts, lockers)
37s (pitbulls, treps, km2s, mtrs)
besttop halftop, take out back seat
heavy duty steering set up
cage
seats/harnesses
clayton 5.5 (maybe stretch?) antirock and bilseins
lots of little expensive parts that i dont need (think Leds, corners, synthetic line)
that will keep me occupied for a while


want to stop dumping massive amounts of money after college... like that will happen..

snagged a fire extinguisher and replaced the clutch at 60k miles, going to Harlan, KY. hopefully will be wheelin pictures soon.

Starting to plan for the future of this
thinking a clean build on 37s that has street manners and a lot of bolt on parts
Built Rubi 44s
37 MTRs or something of the like
Longarms, corners, a safety stage, its kinda vague now, time will tell

Jeep looks good I look forward to Harlan pics. Been meaning to get there for over a year now.

I think I've seen you around Blacksburg once or twice. I graduated in '05 from VT but work in Blacksburg. I drive a navy blue TJ:
