2003 Wrangler X: My Build

I bought a 2003 wrangler x hardtop with 44,000 miles for $6900 a couples months ago.
now i purchased the zone 4.25" combo lift and am installing it. I also got some bfg km2's and black rock wheels. Also have some pocket flares.


First day: took all day just to install body lift and motor mount lift. The body lift went in fine, but the motor mount lift was hella hard on the drivers side because their is no room to work with. In addtion we ran into the gas tank hose problem. It was too short so we went to the store and purchased a longer hose. Well thats all for that day. Sunday is suspension lift day.

Pics from body lift and motor mount day

Now my jeep dosent engage into 4hi but 4 lo yes. Then after a bit it stayed stuck on 4hi and cant move it down to 2hi and dashboard does not say its in 4hi but it in that location. So i cannot move it back to 2hi but it dosent say its in 4hi and it goes to 4lo but dosent say on 4lo.

I actually bought it from an auction. So it was in an accident and still hadn't been repaired. But the fix was very easy. I'm still amazed I got it for that cheap.
