Red TJ highschool build

Im starting this thread to keep track of my Jeep. I will post pics of the progress made and will keep any subscribers updated. I will also frequently ask for advice and recommendations on parts and upgrades.

I'll start with the 1st pics I took and go from there.

Ok so first modifications or fixes I did was the soft top.
I got a Pavements Ends from my parents for Christmas. (I know their crap but it was free) I wouldn't recommend Pavement Ends.. I got a little mud in a zipper and it took like 2 hours of yanking to fix it.
2nd mod was a 10" bazooka tube w/ 100w amp attached. I got my friend who works for my church to do it.

I sanded down the side mirrors and re-painted them.

Will post pictures after school!

Here's the most recent picture. The people inside complemented my parking job!

Yea, I'm funding this with the odd $20 every so often and whatever else. I'm looking for a job though. I almost got one with a jeep owner at Autozone but I'm 16!!

Results of a stupid move. Everythings fine. $60 lighter though. My friend had to get a buddy he knew with a tractor to get me out! But I don't regret it lol.

Can't wait for Mardi Gras break, I'm bed lining the interior and maybe buffing out some dents. And I wanna do something with the roll cage padding.

I might also make some sort of protection for my bazooka tube. Cause If I go to school with the top off I don't wanna get it stolen. Maybe some sort of alarm system or padlock...

if you want something cheap that makes it look better and is useful, line your jeep.
im in hs to, i have a green tj, I've got a lift and big tires going already, but lining was a great thing. did herculiner, pulled everything out and cleaned it myself, prepped with a buddy and rolled it on, 8hours and 70bucks later, my tj was clean on the inside, washes out in a heartbeat. next for me is a bumper, than corner guards, then rock sliders,then winch, then cb. then.... the list goes on haha. just empty every pocket.

Amen to that. I flooded mine last week and it wouldve been so convenient to just pull the drain plug. I can't wait to do it!

Nothing much has happened recently. I'm trying to convince my parents to buy me red and black Neoprene seat covers so everything will be waterproof.
My girlfriend wants to name my Jeep- Fred. I said I'd give it some thought, and if I did decide on Fred The Red Jeep. I'd get a sticker for the side of the hood saying that.
However I think it'd be funny to call it "The Mistress" and getting that... Lol
