Well I've wanted to make a build thread for a long time but I was always obligated to make one due the lack of what I've done to my jeep, but I said screw and was pushed some a certain someone off JF to make one... Thanks Jamison
When I was 15 I received my first jeep for my birthday which was a 1984 CJ7.


After putting some much work into it to pass inspection it finally did until the "inspector" was getting out and put his foot threw the floor :( so my step dad sold it.
For my 17th birthday I received my 2004 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. which i found out later I had to pay for but I didn't care.




Friend let me borrow his 33" BFGs

so I thought i Would buy him something for letting me use them for the time being.
That's right Center Caps!!!!

I was looking in the bargineer/autotrader magazines a good bit and found an Electric Green Rubicon for sale for over 16k.
I told my friend and he told me it was nice and I should get it. Well the next week it was gone so someone bought it.Well things were going good until mom told me they were filing for bankruptcy... and the jeep was in my parents name.. so the bank was going to take it. So I started looking around for cars for gas mileage but was going to look for a jeep to buy instead. And I knew I didn't want anything less then a Rubicon(no offense to anyone) Well apparently every jeep I found for a good deal my mom told me it was too much to buy blah blah blah blah blah. Well even though that electric green Rubicon was sold the autotrader people accidentally put it back into there magazine so I called. Mount Zion offroad said that the autotrader people must of screwed up because it was sold. Well I automatically assumed it was sold and just asked to make sure. he said it was "kinda available" so like anyone would say, I said, "WTF does Kinda Available Mean?" He said some one bought it and then traded it in along with his beamer Motorcycle for an 08 Z06 Vette. So it was "kinda available at another dealership. So I told him I was interested and he went and picked it up, I applied for a loan Friday (5:30p.m.) got approved Saturday morning (10:00a.m.) and went to York,PA an hour later to go get it. Mount Zion had already Put a Lift and Tires on it.
They finally put up the picture of when I bought it!!!!



RC 2.5 Lift and MIckey Thompson MTZ 285/75R16 Tires:

Well i picked it up that saturday and i took the windows off since i had them even though it was cold as balls and drove all the way home with them off.

since my tire had so much backspacing the stock bumper couldn't be on with my spare tire at the same time so my friend Jeremy gave me his old smittybilt rear bumper w/o tire carrier.

Well I was checking out some sites for a little bit more protection and came across poison spyder customs and bought a Steering box skid plate from them


well I found my friend this awesome sticker so i bought it for him then eventually for my jeep that we both had stuck on the inside of our windshield in the top passenger side.(for the women)

well I was searching the classifieds on JF during work I came across a nice set of Mastercraft Seats In VA for a nice price I couldn't refuse to pass up. I got the pair/ mounting brackets/ and seat belt female piece for 350

.
I don't have any pictures of the seats installed because I only put one in after pretty much breaking my hand in the freezing cold trying to get the bolt out of the floor board. Plus I sold them to my friend jeremy because he wanted them and i needed the money and I liked the Sahara seats We swapped for back when i had my LJ.

It's all good I was trying to post it all up at once but was going to finish tmrw and then I kept going lol but yeah its my favorite color jeep besides intense blue and impact orange (rare colors). I'm glad you like the build so far. and the color is called Electric green. A lot of people don't think it came from the factory in this color. I think intense blue is more of a rare color then mine is. but thanks for checking out my build man i'll finish the rest later of what i have done
