Well I will start off with I have been waiting to start this thread for a while, I just needed stuff to post to start
. A little background info first. This is my first jeep and it is a 2006 LJ that i bought new(zero % financing is great).
The first mod i did was removing the milk juggs/floaties off the front stock bumper, small but a start. I left the rear milkjuggs/floaties because I have seen and heard of them providing some protection in the rear. The first things i ordered for my jeep were Kilby steering box skid, JKS bodylift, and a JKS budget motor mount lift.
The only thing I have installed so far is the Kilby steering box skid. I have been waiting for some time off work (I work two jobs) to install the bodylift and motor mount lift. I also decided to go with the brown dog 1" mml instead of the JKS bmml because I dont want to fool with cutting the orginal bolts on the stock mm. This is also another reason i am waiting to install the bl, I should receive the browndog mm this week.( I also am selling my JKS bmml) If the browndog mml comes in before Thursday I should have the bl and mml installed by Saturday night. I am going to be installing everything by myself and i have never done a bl or mml before, so I am giving myself plenty of time.
Picture of my installed Kilby steering box skid.
The next mod that i did was another easy one. I painted the headlight rings black I like the look alot better.
I have also ordered and received my wheels I will use after i get my suspension lift. I bought five black caragar soft 8's and center caps.
As i said before i am planning on a suspension lift. I think I am going to go with the RE lift. I just dont know if I want to buy the 3.5 standard with adj front/rear track bars with ome shocks and install it and save and buy the control arms.Or save for a while and and buy the 4.5sf with all adj trackbars/control arms and swap for 3.5" springs. With either one of these i plan on a t-case drop at first and then a sye, cv drive shaft, and tummy tuck/bellyup as money permits. The first step is to run 33's and then after those wear out I will opt for gears and finnally 35's. Before the gears and 35's i plan on a lunch box locker for my D30 up front. I probaly will wheel maybe once every other month so most of my driving will be on road
. Any suggestions will be great and i will take plenty of pictures as my jeep transforms.
