Yellow Highschool TJ Build

Building up my 04 Tj on a Highschool budget is not too easy. I am an Automotive Tech at a local shop in town but i still dont make much money. i figured that i would post pictures of my jeep as i go along. i have had my jeep at this point for 9 months and im a little late starting this thread (my first thread, cut me some slack) but i figured what the hell. if people want to look at my prized possesion, and comment then go ahead.
this is what it looks like before i did anything to it.

Photo of the KC H4 conversion. in my opinion, they are worth the money, about $100 but a little brighter. I only have 55/60w in them but plan on eventually going a little bigger.

I love the way Yellow looks on Jeeps. I'm just now looking for a clean TJ but I will buy a yellow one if I get the opportunity. Good luck with your build.

Has anyone had and experience with Goodyear wrangler MT/R tires. I have enough money saved up or my lift and now I am saving for a set of 33x12.5x15. I really like these tires. My brother has a set I duratracks on his tj and I'm looking for Something a little more aggressive. And also does anyone have a clue how long these tires last for mileage wise.

Pic of what my TJ looks like now. only has 1 in body mount/lift installed. it sure makes the ride a hell of a lot rougher. By brother has a 2 in spacer lift with skyjacker hydros and his ride is a lot softer than mine. besides that i have my KC's and the Banks Monster Exhaust. In my opinion, its a little on the loud side but it is a head turner (not like the color yellow isnt either)

Just got me a set of 33x12.5x15 wrangler MT/R's. Absolutely love them. Put them on today and balanced them with dynabeads and they work better than I thought. I only have a one inch body lift and surprisingly they don't rub, granted iv only driven 10 miles on them. Pictures are soon to come. Next on the list is a rubicon express 4.5 superflex lift
