Wj build bluedreamn

Been wanting to do a build thread for a while now,guess I finally got some time.

Had a 99 wj 4.slow was cool took it to sierra Nevadas and big bear a couple times also some local cali trails like silverado canyone trail and Santa Rosa truck trail. however it had its problems,after much debate and contemplating I decided to sell the pos and start over with a real nice rig since I won't be driving it everyday and I plan on making it my around two new and mountain bound rigg. Anyways here she is after looking at a couple other wj I found a sweet one that I couldnt walk away from,can't seem to find a pic of when I first got her but here's the list of future mods

Rc long arms and iro coils with bilst...
Spare tire carrier with stick bumper,acquiring parts still need a Fin wj hitch and not a below gas tank one��
New head unit radio
Gas tank tuck
242hd....and world peace while I'm at it��
Home made front bumper
Led tail lights and halo heads
Super 50 exhaust


I drive a heep of a jeep...but it's mine and it takes me everywhere

First couple mods were the cb radio and fender mount pod lights,shortly after that go some 265 75 16 buckshot that I threw on before the serra trip I took in 2016. Buddie took his xjhiti on the last trip for her,sold shortly after we got home from the trip.

Was a great day to paint so I decided to do somthin diffrent with the grill. Started by redoing everything in plasti dip last night then doing a light layer of spray paint,turned out real good my test subject was my old rim I did it a couple days ago during the week just to make sure I could peel it off if I didn't like it,while I was at it I added some more red touches to the jeep so far I like it so I'm gana take her to the wash and clean her up. Also started on the tire carrier not much progress but I stared cutting the metal base out of the way for the 2x4 took a while but glad I got it done. Tomorrow morning gana see if I can cut it and tack it down.

Finished the grill and started on the rims,fresh coat of plasti dip then I'll do a layer of black rustolium and a clear coat to seal it all up,test subject was my spare tire been workin on it all last week to make sure I can peel it off with the paint over the plastidip,if anyone is wanting to do the same method I suggest doing multiple layers of the plasti dip I did a can and a half on each rim. Also popped the caps of and painted the jeep wording red I think it gives it a little more flare. I got the idea from the trd tacomas.

Little bit of a set back my wallet got stollen out of the jeep they pushed my sun roof open and took my phone as well....? them. So after cancelling the cards and filling a report I was just bummed. Then the track bar came the same day and springs are on the way. After I get my card in I'll be ordering the arms kit next. So with that in mind me and the dudes hit up a trail for the weekend it's was pretty tough got stuck a couple times mainly because of poor lines but the bro had fun and Ithe made me Wana lift me jeeposted sooner rather than later.? and the jeep came back brown and blue,love driving threw mud but damage I hate cleaning it off.
