Build Thread?

At what point does one begin a build thread? Because, honestly, I've seen build threads that are a bit boring. I have seen that usually the build threads that are most watched are the ones focused on the best looking wks. I am subscribed to The Dentist a few other ones and ofcourse (like everyone else here) to Omelets thread as well. I just don't wanna start my build thread and bore people. I don't consider my WK to be up to these standards quite yet. So I'm asking, at what point does one consider starting his or her own build thread?

I would say, once you have several modifications that you have documented with pictures and information about the mod then go ahead and start one. It may not be the most popular thread but I enjoy seeing photos that give me ideas of how different mods may look on my jeep. I am sure others can appreciate this as well. I say start one!

Start off with the stock photo and go down the list from there . Something as little as how you routed the coax from the cab to the rear of the Jeep could be beneficial for someone to see. I'd love to see how your Jeep looks now.

Your jeep looks great. Love the wheels and red calipers. Where did you pick those wheels up?

Thanks man, another guy was selling off his commander. I was originally looking at the AEV pintlers but id always wanted the hulk wheels and it was a killer price so I couldnt pass them up

Don't get me wrong, I have the money for the AEVs but its like, everyone wanys them so that would ruin the originality of my jeep. Ive seen only one WK with the hulk wheels and he wasnt lifted or anything ive always been a fan of these wheels so I thought itd bring me more individual points I love the way they came out

I started mine when it came to the point where i was beginning to forget some of my smaller mods. So i started one kinda to show people where i stand and so i can keep track where im at in my build. I actually have a list of the mods i want and the order i want to get them. Of course its subject to change due to getting deals or parta not being out yet.

2007 JK Sahara- trying to figure this one out


2005 WK 9" lift on 37's with all the goodies- regretfully sold :(
