Slow build

I decided to start a build thread it will unfortunately be a slow build but I ordered a smittybuilt rear bumper a couple days ago and will go from there.

And now that she is on a fresh rebuild the option for a 4.0 swap is getting pushed out a little farther.

looks like you are off to a good start, but they never seem to get finished there is always some thing we want or need to do

Thanks guys it's nice to hear that my jeep is looking good and I'm definitely lifting it before the next time I wheel it cause she rubs a little but hey what's a jeep without small problems.
I'll be installing my ammo can center console and 2 new speakers on the fenders later today I'll post pics when I'm done.

I only have 57 miles on them and they will rub at the thought of off-road so I couldn't tell u how they perform any where but dry pavement but as far as looks couldn't be happier and they look more aggressive than my brothers mtr/k in my opinion (same size)

Don't know the pics sent separate from the words. anyway If I ever rebuild one I will get a 32mm ammo can because it's bigger and being the half-wit that I am I didn't think about the latch clearing the cup holders so I had to dog ear the corners off so I would put the latch in the back but I welded some 1/2 x1/8 flat stock around the top so I can set stuff there works great. Bonus points for anyone who can guess what the cup holder Frame is made of.

It's looking great so far. Amazing how a couple inches of lift changes the look of a jeep
