Colorado Jeepers -- Pics of your Jeep Before, During and Now

I want to see pics of everybody's Jeeps throughout the progression of mods. Post up pics of what it looked like when you bought it, after a few mods, and what it looks like now!
Heres the TJ when I bought it:


After a BB and 31s:

I wanna play!
We'll start with the TJ first:

How I brought it home:



After adding some odds and ends, like the Raingler nets, windshield lights, steering upgrades, and a couple other little things:



After adding the front bumper and winch, rear Super 35, and 35" Maxxis Bighorns (the way it currently sits):

And now the XJ:

The way I brought it home:


After adding the 3.5" lift, cargo rack and steelies:



After adding the front ARB bumper, rock sliders, and 31" BFG A/T's:



And after swapping to 31" BFG M/T's, and finally wiring in the lights on the rack (as it currently sits):

Isn't it cute? Right after I put the Geos on it, pre-lift, pre rad support, pre-sliders. I did have my CB antenna on though


Still pre-lift, but I had the radiator support in - This is Moody Hill, I seem to remember Arlo telling me I needed a lift


Slaughterhouse...pretty sure this was the one when Scott asked me, "When ya gonna lift it?" - hey! It had a BB!


And here's pretty much now - My trip to Johnny Park with Ben (RollerHMan)


I'll update this post next week when I get my KL71s - gonna do it, got some stuff around the house to sell and hopefully make up some of the difference in cost

Stocker


Same angle lifted


Stocker


Same angle lifted


After the lift came the new meats.


Nothing like Slaughterhouse to pop a boy's cherry! (stock)


This is pretty much how it stands today.


I have a roof rack I need to toss up there and that's about all for right now. The baby is taking a hit on the Jeep fund. Oh well...10 more payments and it'll be ALL MINE!!! Bwahahaha......

Second trip offroading, 1000 miles on the odometer:


Luckily we ran into an experienced wheeler up there who was kind enough to show me the beginning ropes. Went up there by myself and my friend/GF


The next year I got a nice tax refund ($1500) and won some money in vegas ($1500) so I bought some new tires, roof rack, exhaust (Borla), sliders, and new skids:
.

~5 months later I had a BB installed:


~4 months later I had saved for a 4.5" lift and had it installed on the same tires I had when I was stock


A month after that I had my 32's:


Since then I haven't installed a whole lot except non-fun parts like TC skid, TW DS, HD Drag links, etc...Here are the TC & DS:


And that is where I sit until I installed my tow truck mod:

I'm sorry Arlo, but it has to be said. That is one ugly girlfriend.

Inner/Outer Axle Shaft was completely seperated and didn't have my 36mm socket necessary to remove the axle shaft to plug the axle tube.
