03 TJ with 1000's of build pics!!

Hello everyone,
I was on Jeepforum.com for a while and decided to venture out to other forums to share my experiences with my build. I have a 2003 TJ which I have been building since 2005. I have a build thread on JF, and I know how much everyone likes pictures, so since 05, I took pictures of as everything I did to my Jeep since 05. I will use this thread as my build thread as well to post pics, ect. I hope everyone enjoys the pictures.
And yes, I do wheel her, and Yes, I do like to keep her clean. I have a small detailing business, and I love when she shines. Any questions please ask. Thank you.

I paid $40 for it on eBay, so I cant complain. I feel it does just as good as the $300 kits. I noticed a bit more power in 5th gear, others will disagree.

Been building her since 2005. I don't think I will ever sell. Came close twice, but backed out last minute.
