ScottHarr_TJ's Project

OK, so I've been on the forums for a while now and I figured I'd go ahead and make a build thread; A) to keep track of the progress of my 2000 TJ, and B) to keep track of the amount of money I've dumped into this her.
How she sits now:
Rubicon Express 3.5 Super Flex kit
33 BFG muds
And lots of other little mods that you'll see

Future Plans:
Homebrew tire carrier
AA SYE/Tom Woods driveshaft
Detroit in the Dana 44
Either Aussie or Detroit TT up front in the 30
AW-4 Tranny swap.
Novak or AA T-case linkage adapter
Alloy USA shafts
Bigger Meats! 35's

Thats all I can really think of right of the top of my head that are on my list of things to do soon. So here she is stock. These are pictures from installing my lift. I dont have any real good stock pictures right now. Sorry they are in black and white for some reason. When we did the lift it was about one in the morning when we started in the middle of winter and we worked in a freezing cold garage until we finished. It was crazy, but I was excited that in finally came in the mail, so what better to do than to celebrate by staying up all night and installing it? I couldnt think of anything...

Another

Me with my back turned and my buddy Logan who helped out:

And the new meats next to the old meats. Pretty big difference IMO.


Now the after results:

Wheeling her:

A little poser shot:

A flex shot on a ramp in the back of a where house. It was all that was around after the lift.


Also, Since the lift, I've installed a set of Rokmen Mercenary Rock Sliders, ORO LITEdot LED taillights, Warn Sterring Skid, and Pro comp genuine steel front and rear bumpers. I'll post up some pics of those as I find them. All my photos are scattered every where since my computer crashed a month ago.

I also built a box for my rear seat to get rid of passengers in the back haha. It has proven itself to be very useful on the trail for hauling around my gear and keeping me prepared for anything I need. The box was made from some plywood from Home Depot and a set of heavy duty draw sliders. The link to my build for it is in my Sig.

Heres a shot of my interior with my Cobra CB radio setup. Just the other day I finally tuned my antenna with a wheelin buddy rmtomasin and have gotten much better quality out of my little CB. I can transmit and receive from miles away. If you have a CB and haven't properly tuned your antennas, I would highly recommend tuning them as it can cause damage to the CB. Heres a helpful link to those interested. Antenna Adjustment and Tuning


Also last night, I installed my transfer case shifter linkage drop bracket that came along with my Performance accessories 1" body lift. Since the lift, my 4lo wasnt shifting properly and I began to hear slight knocking under my feet during acceleration, hence why I installed the drop bracket. It turned out to be a real PITA and I had to completely disconnect the entire linkage and set it all back up again. This bracket is only to hold me over until I can get the money for an AA linkage or just go with the Novak. here are a few photos of the drop bracket in action.




You can see the black drop bracket where the torque shaft passes through which dropped the torque shaft back to parallel after hours of alignment. Like I said, it was not fun.

^ I agree with you, I had the choice between them, and I chose those simply because I know they are great tires and I liked the looks way better.

Im finally ready to order my 33's....and i can't get them. Im going with BFG A/T's instead. They'll be better here in Florida during the rainy season anyway... it's still my DD.

EDIT:

Did you add a MML?

Have you tried buying through discount tire? Thats where I got mine after they stopped selling them. but I ran those A/T for 2 years and put about 40 or 50K on them. they are great tires. I did do a MML, i just dont have any pictures of it right now, its too cold outside to take any. I installed the M.O.R.E Bombproof MMs

Yeah... Im going thru TirePackage.com...they seem to have the best deal for what I want.

I was wondering about teh MML because of your shifter issue.

The past week I've done a pretty big tune up on everything from the engine to the drivetrain. I changed all the fluids and replaced the water pump, thermostat, and the fan clutch. Basically I did all the routine maintence involved in a tune up ona high mileage car.

As I'm in the process of finding all the pics of all my installed stuff, Im getting ready to start on my OBA project. I have had sitting in my garage a 2.5 gallon air tank that I've been considering using for my setup. Im looking into compressors and what not, but I am trying to find one for a decent price as to keep this project as little money as possible. I had originally wanted to run the YORK setup, but I dont have the time right now to scavenge for all those parts as well as parts for my new tranny for my auto swap.

Right nows its between a Viar or Quick air compressor. Since I already have a box using up my back seats, I figure mounting the air tank and the compressor back there is my best bet. After a day long wheelin trip i'd like to keep my compressor nice and cool inside the cab instead of under the hood.

Here are some Pictures of the M.O.R.E motor mounts installed. The driver side is a PITA because of the AC so the whole bracket had to be removed.

and the passenger side which took all of 15 minutes:

Heres some pictures of my four favorite mods to my jeep by far. If you dont have a TIKI hula girl yet, you need a trusty co-pilot for all your jeep adventures. BTW, shes not black, shes just really really tan.

I love how she points to the clinometer for me constantly, its like shes giving me a heads up.
I also installed these Tough Stuff Gear Netz. they are great on the traila nd keep everything inside my Heep:

Also, here are my ORO LED LITEdots installed. Installation was a breeze and the directions provided were superb. My hats off to ORO for a great product. After years of using the old stock tail lights, you can still see where they were. It'll buff out.

And another that also gives a better look at my slide out tool box:

And lastly, a nice little poser shot i figured I'd take while I was out there. I realized my baby needs a bath, she hasnt been cleaned up in any of the pictures I've posted.
