Drasticon, or rubicon? A TJ build

Well I'm back. Unsure if anyone is still around from the old days.. joined here in 2009ish with a 1994 YJ on 33s. Went to a 2000 wrangler LCOG on 37s. To a 2009 JK on 37s and now to a 2004 electric lime green TJ.

I built my original TJ on a college budget and cut corners, made mistakes, learned and grew through jeepforum. I'm now a 31 year old recently married..still immature adult. I'm a world class certified GM technician. I felt like getting back in the jeep life and I've always wanted a rubicon. With covid going on, prices were insane. I found a 2004 electric lime green rubicon TJ for 6000 and jumped all over it. It was meh and needed alot! of work. So feel free to follow, ask questions, leave comments and enjoy 🤙

Color matched the front poison spyder highline fenders. Wanted to keep as much green as possible. Cutting into the hood was much easier this time around, the old jeep had me scared to cut the 1st time. 😂😂😂
Mocked up the driver fender and then it starting raining..still on the to do list.

Install currie anti rock, 4 link long arm kit, bilstein 5100s, rocker armor, corner armor, litedot led tail lights. All parts are sitting in the shed.

As you can see, I had some hidden rust under the garbage factory rubicon rock slider(aka mud collectors) so I cut and welded in all new panels. Just going to rattle can it factory color. Not really looking to make it perfect considering I'll have armor covering everything so none of my body work will show 😂😂😂
