Thought I would start my build thread as I'm finally starting to add mods to the Jeep.
This is my first Jeep, and I'm looking forward to learning a lot while upgrading her. Seems like a good vehicle to work on.
- 2009 2dr X
- 3.73 Gears
- Bought when it had 67k miles, have since put on it nearly 8k
Mods purchased so far:
On the way home from the dealer
Ace Rock Sliders Install
- Ace Rock Sliders
Note: I thought I would be able to get away with grinding with just one side, but to have it sitting flush inside the block, it needs to be trimmed on either side.

Yummy, two of the four body mounts had this buildup of dirt
Old but trustworthy grinder I borrowed
Who needs friends, here's my awesome setup for installing the sliders
Aftermath of 4 washers
Whats the next big steps will be:
- Rubicon Springs and Shocks (Discovered today that the front springs are different rates )
- 33" Tires and rims
- Front and Rear bumpers
