Dragonii It looks tight just in all white with no logos, and the bare roll bars make a huge difference....

Looking good. Can't wait to see it all come together.

alice the cat Thank you all so much for the warm welcome! This place has already saved me a ton of time and money. I'm learning so much but I know I still have much left.

Shout out to Dragonii for the help and answering all of my dumb questions. What a fun project this thing is! The pile of boxes is getting taller.

Getting close to being ready for paint...

Dragonii I was in the same boat a few weeks back. I always wanted a Jeep but they always seemed just out of reach. I finally decided to MAKE it happen, and it was actually pretty easy.

I had a crash course in Wranglers thanks to the internet. Narrowed my choice down to a 2 year window of production to get what I wanted, found it and then started trying to learn what to do with it. lol

There is so much out there, lift kit options, tire/wheel combos, top choices... it's crazy. The TJ is just endless in the possibilities to customize or tweak it, and these guys on this forum have been a huge asset.

I have so far replaced my top, wheels, brakes, tune up, seat covers, speakers, gauge lights, fenders, light body armor, side steps, steering stabilizer and had an alarm installed.
Things I have purchased that are sitting on side waiting for me to have the spare time to complete are... new head unit, 2 amps, sub woofer, new carpet, 3 sets of lights, 1" body lift, 2" suspension spacer lift, Rancho shocks, air filter monitor... I think that's about it.

So I have done a lot of research. lol... If you have any question just ask away. I pretty much have a 24 hr connection to the internet being a computer tech so I am never far away. lol

Good luck, and welcome. I'm sure those H1's are nice, but there is nothing like a Jeep.

I am for sure. I have never felt so ignorant in my life. It's tough starting from scratch. Learning on the fly with this build. Back to the search button
Thank you.

My first Jeep! Hello from San Diego

I just got her home today. 99 Sahara with 68k miles.
I have always wanted a Wrangler and I finally found myself a little project. I have been building and playing with Hummer H1's for 12 years or so and I wanted to try something a little smaller this time.
First up will be wheels and tires (I have never seen tires this bald). Then its off for paint followed by a new top and stereo. The list after that is long but I'm trying to take it one step at a time. I have 100's of questions but I'm going to keep using the search button for a couple weeks.
Here are a few pics. Thanks in advance for putting up with me.
