New blinstense shocks and bf goodwrench a/t
I know plan for a 2.5 body lift ( where to buy from idk ) new bumpers
Winch rocker guards
And rubicon wheels .

That sweet man. I'm in high school as well, but I've got my 01 TJ! I would suggest not doing such a big body lift. Maybe a BB (the pucks) type of lift. I saved up for a 2.5" susp. lift myself and netted a total of 3 in. Sounds like a sweet plan though man!

Why would you get a 2.5 bl? Why not just get a 2.25 coil spacer lift for like $100?
Nice looking jeep though.. How do you like the new soft top? Is it easier to take off? How does it fold up?

Nice Jeep! Im in high school as well. Definitely do pucks instead though. Body lifts are ugly. You don't want it to look like this do you?

Thank for the advice I dont know much about lifting a jeep and I LOVE. The new top turns into a bikini top in two min. Completely off in 5 much easier ( but my factory one wad hardly ever put down ) and it fits in a duffle bag .

It took me FOREVER! I also broke a grade 11 bolt with my torque wrench to complicate things, but lets not talk about it lol. Terrible times. Gotta paint my last rim this week and clean up my discos to throw on before we head to the beach.

Let it sit in the sun. It dries right out. I had my jeep soaked one morning when there was a ten percent chance of rain. Just sat it in the sun for a little while. It'll be all good

^^^ I'll second that. Towels are always a good thing to keep in your jeep.

Yeah pretty much. Only one more year

Your carpet should be fine as long as you let it dry out completely. Other wise you might start growing some nice mold.

Your carpet will be fine. Jeeps are made to get wet and dry out. For the most part...

It'll be 95 deg. And most of it except what's on in the carpet and seats is in the process of being vac. Out .

You can pull your carpet in a few weeks and check for rust or mold if you really want. I say take the doors off and top and let it sit out tomorrow. use a hairdryer if you need to and throw those towels in there like I said.

Yeah Invert! One more year too. hell yea.
