Hi to all,

04 Wrangler X, Black, 4.0, AT, Stock, Soft Top

Plans to modify between now and next deer season. Will probably start with cold air intake, exhaust, and possibly bigger throttle body/spacer (within 3 months). As deer season gets closer, I will add a 2.5-3" suspension lift kit,
32" tires (maxxis Buckshots or equivelant), shocks, rock sliders/nerf bars, and grille guard. Last two items I have left to complete the full tune up is changing Xfer case & trans. fluid (not lookin forward to it, lol). May have to pull some extra work while I'm in from Offshore to do these, as my financial advisor (wife) has cracked down on me (lol).

I want to add lockers, but unfamiliar with the process? If anyone have info or suggestions it would be greatly appreciated. I will post a few pics on my next entry.

Thanks

Thanks for the welcome guys. I see there are quite a few avid Jeep riders here. Can't wait to modify and get er dirty! Looks like it may be later than sooner, as the wife and I worked on the W-2's! (I need to meet this Uncle Sam fella! )

Finished up changing the X-Fer Case & Trans. Fluid/Filter yesterday morning...what a pain in the butt!!!

Welcome to the forum Toby, you don't need lockers unless you plan on doing some serious offroading, also check your rearend to see if you have a D35 or D44. You do not want to lock a D35, it could potentially blow up, plan on being broke now that you have a jeep and want to modify it....
