Made my choices ... started buying stuff.
I read all I can read and I can't handle any more opinions!
I decided what I'm doing for my Jeep.
First I am naming it Bug Out! Many of my friends have bug out bags and such and I guess I do too if you count my hunting gear bags. But what good are bug out bags if you can't go anywhere? So I bought my JKU in Commando Green back in May.
I will have work on decals for the name.
Bug Out!, Bugout! or Bug-Out!
- not sure yet...
I decided on a 2.5" TeraFlex coil lift. http://www.quadratec.com/products/16190_2501_07.htm
I can do the shocks later if I need to.
I can't afford new wheels all around at this point, so I'll stick with the stock 32's (255/75R17 OWL) and install Spidertrax spacers. The spacers showed up today. Eventually, when the cash becomes available I'll get proper wheels and 33" tires.
Previously I had installed Smittybilt SRC Side Armor.
I still have not decided on bumpers - but I don't have the cash for those yet so I have time to figure it out.
So this evening I decided to simply install those spacers. After two hours in the heat and humidity I finally found my tools. For the life of me I could not find my 3/4 deep well impact socket. Without that the lugs nuts were staying put. I've been putting it off but I finally HAVE to clean my garage.
Maybe this weekend? By the time I found what I needed it was dark and I was sweaty and hot. I did the fronts tonight. Tomorrow it will be nothing to do the rears. At least I know where my tools are now.
Next month I should be able to buy the lift kit. I hope it's cooler when I try to install that.
It's a small "build", but it's my build and my budget.
