My 2004 Wrangler Sport build!

We are gonna start tomorrow so pictures to follow.


I was going to wait for everything to get here before I started but I can't wait til next week.

The lift, tires and new gears are here so it is time to get started!

Rubicon Express 4.5 short arm kit with new shocks and springs

5 - 35" mickey Thompson Baja Radial

5- -15 inch black steel rims

going to 4.88 gears

Here she is when I bought her.

will take the light bar off as well as the chrome bumpers, side mirrors, door hinges, hood hinges, nerf bars, grill inserts and vent cover.

The new Tom woods drive shaft and new SYE will be installed next week as they arent here yet.

still waiting on the UPS guy for all new black hinges

yet to be decided new bumpers and sliders
