I think that is where a few of those pics are taken.

Is there a build thread on Chris Durham's TJ?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Think about this......

Do you really think he bought an off-the-shelf skid? It's probably a flat piece of 1/4". Not hard to do.

No clue. But he makes and sells them.

Nope, I asked him. If I remember right, it's got a ff14b in the rear, Ford 60 front, Atlas clocked flat, 1" body lift, custom xmember mounted suspension (duh), and 40" MTR's (again, duh). Simple and low as hell.

I’ve learned so much from this forum, and had a few laughs as well. Funny how some people throw out criticism with no knowledge as to whom they are talking to. I won’t say names but some out there repeatedly attack individuals for what they done, why they did it that way, etc….then they say my wang is bigger than yours. Well, I know your jeep is better than mine at this point, but I bet my wang is bigger.

Back to topic. Just bought a bone stock ’99 TJ with 58,000 miles and have a serious bug to do some mods. My previous rig was a 2004 Discovery that I flipped, and I flipped it hard. Don’t want to do that again. That’s what brought me to this forum, LCG. 1st mod on my list is tubes. I was convinced that TNT’s were the way to go until I saw hawkz rig on page 12, rs4race on page 26 & 30, and Filthy-beast on page 37. They opened my mind to Metalcloak. In my opinion, and its based on internet research only, TNT and Metalcloak have the best tube offering available. Sure you’ll pay a little more but most opinions state that the install is straight forward and support is excellent. Today I settled and made the plunge for Metalcloak front arched tubes, rear flares, and rocker guards. Sorry TNT. I got the raw metal and will have them powder coated after I fit, and then reassemble. Along with the tubes, I ordered 33x12.5 on 15x10 rims with a 3.74 backspacing from tirerack. Tirerack beat any price I could find and they just happen to have a warehouse 15 miles from my house so there’s no shipping if I pick them up. They balance the tires at no charge which saves a few more bucks.

My next mod will come right away and I’m thinking of a small but very capable lift. Don’t want to go higher that 2.5”. Perhaps 2.5” isn’t enough but that is what I am leaning toward at the moment, hence flipping my Disco and wanting a LCG 4x4. I see a wide range of lifts from hockey pucks to complete long arm systems. Within each category there is also a wide range of pricing. RC has a long arm 2.5” for $1500 and others can be more than $4K. If it takes $4k to have a solid capable suspension, I will do that. Before taking that plunge, I want to be sure I am getting what I pay for. Many forums bash RC, spring sag, bushings wear out, etc… Looking at RC, I must admit I don’t see anything wrong with their setup. Sure, it may not be as good and long lasting, but will it do the job? I guess the question is, what do I want to do with my TJ? My TJ is a 2nd vehicle that I will use for leisure including trips to the “mall”, ski trips, beach trips, and a few off road trips when I feel the itch to do so. Do I need to crawl 6’ high boulders, not really, but if I can I will. What I’m really looking for is a fun and capable 4x4 that I can take out on weekends with the kids and romp around in without thinking twice of whether or not I can cross a stream, get stuck in some other guys ruts, or break something that can't handle the task.

Do I need to re-gear and beef up the brakes? From what I’ve read, I may be fine with 33’s. I have so much to do beyond tubes, suspension is where I think I should focus at the moment. I like good things whether I need them or not. So….a *****in longarm sounds cool, but do I need to go all the way? Can I start with good quality springs/shock lift and perhaps add some disconnects and arms later. My question then is, does a spring/shock only mod negatively effect the jeeps on-road or off-road performance by putting higher stresses on the stock arms? If so, is that a big deal? Can’t I just replace the arms in time?

Thanks for reading my long winded post and I welcome any feedback.

I figured it was hand built, just wondering in case it wasn't...

To be perfectly flat you must have at least a 1" BL right?
