I didn't do any mods until 2011. The very first thing I did was install a CB/PA radio with a loud speaker haha. That summer, I started adding small things like the light guards and these 31's to replace those little baby tires.

Then I got this Bestop High Access front bumper which is nice but it was sooo heavy and low to the ground looking back at it now but I loved it then. I also got a rugged ridge 8.5 winch and some KC fogs

Fall 2011 I got hit by a drunk driver...he hit the rear left wheel and cracked the axle housing. This picture is crap but I'll throw it in anyway

I think the next thing I did was install an RC 3.25 SL. It was a good kit to learn how to do lifts on and it was cheap for a college sophomore.

A few months ago I put my big ole bumper on craigslist and ending up selling my side steps to one guy haha. Later on I finally got rid of the bumper and got a MC stubby one

At some point I did an RC dual steering stabilizer (I'll take a pic tomorrow)

I went to Gulches back in September and broke some stuff so I got a JKS adjustable front trackbar (pic tomorrow) my stock trackbar had some cracked rubber and the hole I had drilled to relocate it back in the day was wallowed out bad. I also ordered AntiRock sways from Currie but then I realized they wouldn't work with my stubby end caps on my bumper. I got a 3-1/4" hole saw and made it work

A few weeks ago I found this Kargo Master rack on craigslist for cheap...when I went to pick it up the guy told me it came off a rolled jeep haha but it didn't look that bad. I sanded off the surface rust and painted it...I think it came out pretty kewwww

A few days ago I saw a DIY hood mount for a hi lift on this forum and decided I would try it... the only difference is his was a piece of steel on the upper 2 bolts whereas mine is a plate I cut that sits on top of all three hood hinge bolts. I got a big piece of rusty steel from my grandpa's farm and grinded all the rust off then painted it. The shock bushings came from O'reilly...I need to figure out a way to keep my jack from getting stolen though
