My first TJ project, The beginning

OK so here is my 2001 Jeep Wrangler, 60th anniversary Special addition. This Jeep will be in the building stages over the next 3 years. As of now i have some minor mostly cosmetic mods that i have been doing, so when it is lifted and set up for the trail it will all make sense. To start, the Frame front to rear had been restored be a local shop with a higher grade steel then factory. Then i replaced the engine with a brand new 0 mile 4.0 crate engine from Jasper engines, and all Oem engine supporting mods to the engine. Now she runs brand new i feel comfortable with actual mods such as, suspension, axles, differentials, stroker in the future. Every Jeep needs a good starting platform.

For now Heres a mod list of how it stands after my last parts order.
Ported throttle body and spacer
AEM Cold air- " only there till the snorkel is on.. after the lift"
QRC Front bumper and D rings
Black Rhino lined grill
K/C Windshield mounted Long Range lights with K/C mounts
Quadratec Mirror relocation brackets with adjustable door straps
Off road interior door handles. "Pics in my profile"
Smittybilt grab handles
Back seat removed "not so much a mod"
Alpine bluetooth radio
Daystar switch in factory location for the K/C lights
Jeep Skulls where the side Jeep logo goes. "Pics on my profile"
Hardtop KWIK Release clamps
Removed the spare tire and bracket, "Preparation for rear bumper & carrier"
Uniden Bear cat CB Radio, 4 foot Firestick antenna, and rear light mount
Rear Corner guards
Black Tail light Trail protecters "metal cage"
Black Smittybilt gas tank cover
Clear turn signals and fender light covers


So thats it for now. Like i said its only a start and even before summer my project will transform again.
