Great looking build!

I gotta admit, I am impressed by your build. I am very new to jeep and bought a 1997 TJ myself. Mine was road ready, but I too will be customizing it to my tastes. Great post!!! Keep up the good work and keep us updated!!!!

It's been a while since ive posted. Winter has been long & cold. Well, my slave cylinder or clutch master cylinder went poof! Not sure which was the problem. I Lost the pressure and ended up replacing both. Bleeding it was a nightmare, I ended up returning the parts and buying a sealed pre bled unit. It was worth the extra money...

I also sold my half doors and spare transfer case so I think I'm getting close to ordering a lift kit... I'm not going to need 2 inch spacer lift so that's up for grabs if anyone needs it.

I've ran spacers on my other jeeps. They're great., stock ride just a bit taller. If you thinking of doing it, just go for it. I've also added different sizes up front from the rear due to bumper and winch upgrades.

It has 31s on it now, but no lift. I thought it always looked a tad higher than most myself.

I have a 97 TJ on the 2" spacer lift with 31's under it and love he ride and the way it looks for what i do around here it is perfect. but do plan on trying to find a set of JK springs for it also so it will add a bit more but also hear it gives a better ride yet.

biggest thing i did with mine that i have notice others dont and complain about is make sure when you do it your front end is in good shape this dose change angels also have good shocks to

So after an internal struggle.... I decided to sell the jeep and look into getting a boat. See you guys in a few when I get my next project jeep!
Thanks for all the good times and good advice.

So quick update, I'm still jeep less which sucks. Always looking for a good deal though to get back in the game. The owner of my old jeep sent me this picture and said how much she loves the jeep! She clearly uses it for fun!

I guess I can't add photos to this thread anymore but the jeep is sunk in the mud with no doors or top! Covered in mud!
