My TJ grocery getter build is almost complete with a bunch of before after pics

Obviously your never done building up your rig , but im very happy with my setup for a while to come besides a custom swing out tire carrier my buddy plans on fabbing up for my current bumper.

BEFORE
Heres a pic after 32" AT's and a 2"BB , got some bushwacker flares which i regret now,front and rear rugged ridge heavy duty bumpers w/ a brushguard, some KC slims , iggy seat covers , and a new pioneer head unit








2 months after that I started itching for bigger tires , a lift , new gears and i figured if im getting new gears why not just get a D44/ 30 axles with the gear ratio that i wanted instead of spending money on regearing my d35.
and thats when this started. I found a deal on 5 33" SSR swampers with 75% tread, Purchased the RC 3.25 w/ steering stabilizer along with a 1.25" BL/MML. along with that I got the RC rocker guards. While waiting on those I began searching for a Dana 30/44 combo with 3.73 gears ( i have a 3spd auto and do alot of highway driving) and heres what happened with some pics
No its not the ultimate Off-road machine but its capable , looks good to me and im pretty stoked
By the way the RC 3.25 rides better then my stock setup , make sure to get the steering stabilizer, it made a difference with my 33's

Good looking rig. And you being stoked is what counts. BTW, wish I had one of those lifts available to me since I'm just about to do a lift project.

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.
