First vehicle build

I bought my 2.5L 92 YJ last march as my first vehicle. I bought it for $1500 dollars with no 4x4 or 5th gear planning to rebuild it. Finally I finished with early this year. Sadly I am having to leave it at home for two years while I to school. (I'm still in high school and don't have my license yet and they don't allow cars at the school I'm going to). So here is the build done by a 15 year old kid.
Photo 1 is how it was when I bought it.
Photo 2 is how it sits now. (I still have only the hardtop, just had it off for the week)

Cool...what all did you do to it? Obviously a color change and a little lift, but we like details.

In short of what all I did goes like this. 2.5 inch Rough County life (still need some 31's to fit it better), Smittybuilt SRC front and rear bumpers, painted entirely in Raptor Liner truck line, including the hard top, had the front seats reupholstered in waterproof marine vinyl. New speakers and a Bluetooth head unit, and LED dash lights. As far as repairs made I rebuilt the transfer case, had the transmission rebuilt, minor body rust patching, and a few odds and ends elsewhere. I did all of the work myself except for the transmission, seats and the actual spraying of the bed liner.
Here's a photo of the Jeep in progress.
