99 TJ lift advice. Please help!
I have a 99 TJ with stock suspension. I cant decide which lift to put into it, (I am new). Can I get away with a 2.5" coil lift without changing anything else? I have 31's on it currently. The goal is to get it off the ground and looking like a Jeep without getting too carried away as far as cost. Any advice appreciated.

Low Buck CJ5 Restoration
Just remember this was all done with only $1500.00 out of pocket! As we all know when working on our own rigs, our time is not worth anything.

Well lets start from day one. I was out looking for a CJ5 to tow behind my truck to go canoeing. One to drop off at the end of the trip to get back to my truck.
First off I wanted a CJ5 with a straight six with a Half Cab. The first CJ5 I bought was a rusty 67 CJ5 with a frozen V6, but it had a koenig half cab on it.
2013 JK Rubicon "Sarge" - A Sensable Build
Introducing "Sarge", the newest addition to our stable. Sarge is a 2013 Jeep JK Rubicon.


However, before we get to that, our saga actually starts not too long ago in the spring of 2012 with a 2000 TJ that was acquired as a runabout for our RV. The TJ was our first jeep and was a great tow vehicle that opened up vast amounts of territory that was otherwise off limits to the RV.
~ My Savvy Jeep Build ~
My name is Kathryn, Kat for short. I own a 2001 Jeep Wrangler, and I absolutely love it! I bought it in December of 2000. I fell in love with the Amber-Fire Pearl Coat color and our search began for one to call my own. I wanted an Automatic, a Dana 44 in the rear, the factory Sentry Key and the Dark Agate Interior. We searched about 15 dealerships and all they had on the lot was the Manual Transmission. So we decided to order one.

We ordered my Jeep with the specifications that I wanted, and Jeep surprised me by delivering it to our local dealership in 2 weeks.
Build Your Own CO2 Tank System High Quality & Lowest Cost
As an avid off roader I’ve wanted to be able to air down and back up anytime, anywhere and do it quickly but I’ve always been put off by the high price. My goal has been to come up with a solution that is equal to or better than the CO2 tank system suppliers at the lowest possible cost. Here’s what I’ve come up with...

*Build Your Own CO2 Air System*

On board CO2 tank systems offer incredible convenience to users who can air up tires faster than most any other way even when out in the middle of nowhere.
Removing TJ Fender Signals
I found this pic on the web. How would you do it? On a scale of 1-10 how hard? I really like the turn signals under the headlights.
