My Post-Deployment Build Thread

So, I just got home from Afghanistan. While I was there I spent a stupid amount of money on Jeep parts. So, now that I'm home, I figured I'd post pics as I go along installing stuff. Here's the Jeep before I left: (Stuff already done: RE3.5 SF, Raptor lined, bumpers and some other misc small stuff)


(not me in that pic)








And here's what I've got ahead of me:

Making a new rear bumper/tire carrier. Those are frame tie-ins cut for me by Besrk and A-Z Fab's new super spindle. Still need to buy the steel.


UCF Belly skid/Low Tranny mount/Engine skid

Currie HD Steering and JKS trackbars

OBA system Im going to make

Bilstein Shocks

HD Headlights and windshield KC lights

Another Raptor Liner kit for the box Im going to make and to touch up some spots that I missed the first time around

Tom Wood Double Cardan DS and Rokmen Adjustable upper rear control arms

Stereo! Details are in my sig

Edit: added pics of the raptor liner going in.

So, I got the Bilsteins on last night. Im not going to take pictures unless someone really wants me to. I'd say theyre 100% improvement over the RE craptacular shock I had on. The Bilsteins actually helped me remember that my seat had a cushion. The RE's were rediculously rough. Every rock felt like a speedbump. I dont have any offroad reviews yet but my main goal was to soften my road ride which worked out very well.

I started on my power distribution block today. Its rated to 100 amps/10 accy positions with 30 amp relays in each position. About half way done. Ill be re-enforcing the ABS plastic with some steel brackets before mounting it in the engine bay. I originally had harnesses for the relays but opted against them half way through. (Sorry for the blurry, theyre cell phone pics. Pics:
