Well I bought mine without even knowing how to drive it. I learned in like twenty minutes. Became a pro in a week haha. You get used to it. After like two weeks, you don't even think when shifting.

Some of my pics make my jeep look chili pepper red, but it's flame red. It's just the lighting that's all

well its definitely been a while since ive updated..i do most of my posting on jeepforum..but its blocked at work but wranglerforum isnt and I forgot i had this build here

-I got the jeep on 35s..love it, no big difference to me in power or what not than the 33s. But that might be because ive never been a big speed person and dont mind the limits the 35s put me at with speed. although I do take the highway everyday and can pass whenever I seem to want to.

-Got a tire carrier
-did some regular maintance, had to do the exhaust manifold gasket to get rid of the awful squeeling noise, put a new tailpipe and magnaflow muffler, o2 sensors, crankshaft position sensor, brakes. The biggest thing that happened with repairs was my lower control arm bracket ripped right off my axle..had weeks of death wobble prior and apparently due to loose cam bolt because after welding on some nice stronger brackets, no more wobble.
-New kenwood stereo and larger speakers in soundbar and dash.
-seat covers. Ive had neoprene before and although they faded, they at least faded together..these shitty coverking ones have faded at all different speeds and are now half pink and half orange.

heres some pics!

I also obviously added the flat flares, huge improvement over the pocket flares.

current projects include headlights: ordered the hella ecode housings and HID bulbs from DDM. Just waiting on the bulbs to get here then install!

bought a yj hardtop for 100 bucks already cut to fit a tj. Needs to be repainted, thatll probably happen next month, no rush because its not going on till fall. Also bought yj full doors for 100 bucks, kid actually gave me 2 sets for 100. 25 bucks a door lol. Selling the other 2 for 100, keeping one set and repainting and replacing all door latches. I will then tint all the new glass

what do i do about exceeding picture limit?

my f150 has been taking up some time too. That build is coming along nicely. putting in a 3 inch lift tomorrow. I still have my yj door project and hardtop to finish. The weather is still warm so it hasnt been a high priority but it will be done this month. Have all new hardware for doors, just need to paint!

After feeling some guilt for spending the last month and a half building the truck, now sitting on 3 inch lift and 35s (couldnt resist, 33s looked to small).. I decided to spend some money on the jeep. So, after years of wanting to do this, i have palced my order!

I feel guilty, jeep has been on the backburner last few weeks while I worked on my truck. But the jeep has to pass inspection this month so I'll definitely be getting the flush tailights in since my stock ones are all messed up

heres my truck and my skis!

I havent but now I have my truck too i think i can use the jeep more as an offroad rig rather than my DD. 2.5 has been holding up great. im at 145k and i havent had any major issues. Wont burn anyone off the line, but no complaints here driving it almost everyday everywhere

the jeep is finally getting more love this weekend. I havent had a rear shock in months due to a bolt snapping off in the tub..its time to get that sucker out and get that shock back on there. And gonna patch the small spot on the back of the frame, theres a tiny brittle hole that i dont want to get worse. And i finally found another dick cepek FC-II tire. I bought 3 almost brand new and had a very worn down one. So now i finally have 4 almost full tread tires. Apparently DC stopped making the FC II tire..making the only one i could find on ebay. Hope i dont get any flats soon
