NashvilleTJ Always tough to let something go that into which you have put so much time and effort. Like losing an old friend. But, it sounds like it is going to a good home.

TexasTJ I honestly thought I'd never sell it. Sad to see her go, but at least a buddy of mine bought it for him and his daughter to rebuild. We had it for 21.5 years and put over 165k miles on it. I told him I get visitation any time I want, and first dibs if they sell. Last picture is his 2011 JKU on 42s with 180k+ miles that they daily drive.

TexasTJ Figured I'd post a couple finished pictures. My HP30/D44 are now under the tan top TJ, and his D30/D35 are now under my TJ. I'm sitting on stock suspension and JLU wheels/tires (31x10.5r17) and the tan top TJ is on 33x12.15r15 Metalcloak 3.5" kit with Fox remote reservoirs on all 4 corners, Savvy Ultimate Steering and Antirock. I imagine my TJ will be for sale soon.

TexasTJ Just getting started. My Jeep is getting his D30/D35 3.73, not locked, stock suspension. His Jeep is getting my HP30/D44, new Metacloak 3.5" lift, Antirock, Savvy/Currie steering.

TexasTJ Factory seats, cage, and soft top installed today.

TexasTJ Pulled/sold the PSC cage, pulled the UCF skids, put the OE skid back on, picked up a new set of 5 JLU wheels/tires, and washed out floor real good. Should be pulling the axles/lift next Sunday.

TexasTJ I figured might as well add the tranny filter while he was in there again, easy enough to change at oil changes, so once a year.

Picked up some tan seats and a black rollbar. Gonna clean everything up and swap it in soon hopefully. Roll bars came with front seat belts, so now I'll have an extra front set to sell.

Jmkaiser Nice rig! I like the idea of the tranny filter. You just gave me another thing to add to mine some day

She is GSD with Czech bloodline. She has a very dark muzzle, and dark sable coat. I often get asked the same question. Oh and her name is Mia

TexasTJ Well life happens and it's time to sell the Jeep. I started working on a part out this week and have been selling off some of the aftermarket parts. After the majority of it is removed the whole Jeep will be for sale stock-ish.

So far the Corbeaus, full doors, metalcloak front bumper, Next Venture rear bumper, Trucklites, Antirock, Savvy GTS have sold. Still need to sell the wheels/tires, Rokmen tailgate, UCF skids, PSC cage, Rokmen highlines.

TexasTJ Took 4 years, but I finally added a washer fluid reservoir after the Rokmen hi-lines. Also removed the winch to give it to the 4Runner, so she will be winch-less for a while.
Jeep will get a shiny new winch eventually.

TexasTJ Oil changed and tires rotated at 165, 519. Touched up the bare metal on the corners from the flop, I'm hoping to get the corners by Summer.

TexasTJ Removed the lightbar because the wire got sliced after the roll over. Also got the radiator replaced (165k miles), one of the easiest repairs I've ever done on the Jeep. Got the Jeep running again after the Moab trip and took the pup out to run errands.

I also noticed that the tub seams were cracked on both sides after the roll, guess it's time for corners!
