Atlas92 Build Thread "99 WJ"

I have been having a few people asking about my rig so I am going to start a build thread. I got my jeep in Feb of 2010 with about 140,000 miles. It has the 4.0L, np242, d30/35 and 3.73 gears.

The earliest pic I have of my jeep, stock suspension, 245s, 1.5" RC wheel spacers, and cladding painted black.

About a week into owning the jeep, I got a hole in one of my fuel lines up by the gas tank, so I decided to do a tank tuck while I had the tank out.

For about the next month after that, I started stocking up on lift parts. I think this cheepest way to get 6" of lift. I think I am right at $1000 in parts at this point in time.

RCX 4" lift
Rusty's 2"bb
IRO upper adj control arms
IRO fixed lower rear control arms

I put the lift on buy myself (took 10 hours) so I didnt really care to take and pics in the process of putting it on. It measures 6.5" actual lift I dont have a t/c drop and I dont have any vibes.

The only good pic I have with stock wheel and tires.

I got at set of half used Baja ATZs from a friend of mine for free. 35x13.50R20. I got a set of 20x8.5 gunner 5s from discount tire. So for under $700 total I have a good set of 35s mounted and balanced.

I was having a lot of bump steer so I got rid of my little RC adj track bar. I would not recommend it to anybody. I bought an IRO adj track bar form Bama_WJ for a good price and it solved my problems.

I cleaned my headlights with the 3M kit that goes in the drill. It did wonders for my lights.

I then tinted my turn signals and side markers. I also added some tow hooks and trimed my bumper

I'm a good photographer even if i can't access the driving situation. But for reall you need to call me when you need help you know ill help you anytime. At lest make you laugh. By the way ordered that body armor bumper, hitch, 2 kc 8" rally lights, and 2 kc 6" slimlights. Hopefully we can put them on mid week.
Oh yeah next thing you buy needs to be a freakin winch screw that high lift bs my butt got tired of sitting in that seat for an hour!!!!!
If you ever let me drive it with 37's on it you better have dana 60's cause fits going to hit the shan man!!!!!!!!
Thats why you wont be able to drive it with 37s, you can just drive your JK.
Wyatt you know if I'm in the jk and you try to follow in the grand your going to break some stuff no matter how mean your axles are. And if i get the yoat out then you might as well ramp the grand off a cliff and safe your self the trouble of trying to follow me!!!!!!!!

(not that toyotas are better just that i really dont care about mine. JEEP all the way!!)
I'll ramp over it in the yota. And thats why I'm getting skids for the jk just pin it and slide!!!!!
The dodge in the background would do more than that mall crawler lol. Jk looks even better in person. Im ready for the end of harvest then we'll take the JK and the WJ out!!!!!
I should have went it would have been alot cheaper than what I did Sat. Atlas knows what I'm talking about:mad: By the way I'm digging the yota!!!!
Yeah I'll go for sure next time. I just had to go hunting and get a bunch of stuff stolen.:rolleyes:
That truss is pure beef! I'm ready to get all that under her.The skull turned out good.
Yeah we need to.
