Ace2495 Introduction/Build up thread

I have already spoken to a few of you guys on the F.B page and i said i was going to make my acct on here long ago but with all the moving from Fort Hood to Fort Campbell i havent really had much time to do anything at all, regardless here is my intro thread.

I have just recently purchased a 2009 Jeep JK a month or so ago. They were nice enough to let me take it on a 3 day demo, so what exactly did i do...i drove it like a jeep was meant to be driven. I took it through the woods, mud pits, up and down mountain sides. I told them i was going to do it but when i pulled into the car lot with it covered in mud they looked at me like i was the devil; however, the first thing i said was "Dont worry, i have decided i want to keep it"
I got a pretty good deal on it, luckily the guy who i met up with at the car dealership was an ex Infantry guy so he knocked off some money on the Jeep since we are both grunts and i got it for 20k including taxes, tag, and title.

The first thing i did was take the ugly Rocky Mountain Stickers off the hood

I have quite a few goals i plan to do achieve with her

short term goals
3.25" Lift with remote reservoirs
M/T Classic II wheels (i will be staying at the stock 17" wheel size)
M/T Baha MTZ Tires 35x12.5
Freedom Top
Front Bumper
Rear Bumper
Winch
S.B Fenders
Rugged Ridge Modular XHD Snorkel System
Full Exhaust (unsure if i want the MBPR Tailpipe before axle kit or if i want a Gibson exhaust)


Long term goals
Seats
6"+ lift
38" tires
3.9L 4BT Swap
upgraded Dana 44's or Dana 60's

The lift and tire stuff should be paid for come tax time, but as of right now that is all i have planned out to do to her.

Here is some pictures






^That would be my brother snooping around, he has a older model jeep that he just swapped a LS1 into.




here is my other ride

As do i the best part is it has a better powerband, better gas mileage, and all of the gauges are still functional after the swap.

Here are some dirty shots for you, freshly coated as of yesterday. Im waiting on the good mud spot to dry up a little bit so i can go through it. I watched a dodge hydrolock his engine in it yesterday so i didnt even chance it.





ignore the front bumper dent, a tree didnt want to move out of my way on a trail while i was home. I learned him a lesson and got an excuse to get a better front bumper too
