New Jeep

I've had a '97 Wrangler SE 4cyl for a few years, and recently got a '04 X 6cyl.
Here is what I have done so far...
5.5" RE lift consisting of 3.5" coils and 2" spacer, Smittybuilt Bumper and 10k lb winch, Rugged Ridge steering, Tom Woods CV driveshaft and AA SYE, 33" a/t's, Mickey Thompson Wheels, custom rear bumper/tire carrier.





also, got an 8.8 for the rear to put in once I get it built and make the long arms for a long arm kit, gonna use clayton joints and mounting brackets and make them myself. Will keep posted on the progress once I get things rolling

unfortunately I don't have any pics of the making from the rear bumper, but its made out of 3"x6" tubing with 3/16" wall, then the tire carrier is made out of 2x2 3/16" wall with a to z fab. spindle, mounting bracket for the tire, and had to make a new bolt to hold the tire carrier on with a longer bolt with a sleeve and 1" flat bar.

I ordered the parts from A to Z fabrication. Tire Carrier Components :: DIY Fabrication Builder Parts :: AtoZ Fabrication
I bought the Tire Carrier Builder Kit. I had to remake the T-Handle Latch though. If you have any more questions or need help Pm me or something.
