Well...build day is coming up.
So i've been lurking the forum, thread after thread and have finally decided to go ahead and build. Except the money is slow because I am just a poor college kid workin his way through school. But over the past month or so, ive purchased 5 cragar soft 8's (15x8), a soft top, front disconnects, headlight bezels, and i got my hands on 2 inch procomp lift springs. Now all I have to save up for is the tires. I think I am pretty well sold on the BFG All Terrains(32x11.5) because I have had them in the past and loved them.
Im holding off on the bumpers for a couple weeks. My buddy and I are going to make them in his shop. Front bumper with hoop for lighting and rear bumper/tire carrier. A shop that my friend works for is giving it to me at their cost, so its a pretty good deal.
The jeep is a 2000 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4.0 5spd. Is there anything I am going to keep an eye on? Anybody have any tips or suggestions?
The future mods (once my landscaping paychecks start coming in)
-Led tail lights
-Led reverse lights (maybe in bumper)
-viking soft top
Thanks guys, any help will be awesome.
