|CJS98TJ||Yeah seriously that's all stuff that will probably take several years to achieve haha just my dream in my head. There are some things that are needed. Rock siders is my next( have a tiny bit of body damage on the driver side rocker) and a new top for winter haha. Worse comes to worse I can always deal with another set of 33s Haha I have them now and like them but I want one size bigger my tires now will hopefully last to next summer. It's cool to see how much change they can go through. Especially with one like yours where you started from stock, so you have the biggest change and I'm sure more to come. Possibilities are literally endless. Probably one of the things that most people who drive jeeps don't mind blowing all their $ money on. Everything else is not worth it:P haha|

Not much has been done mechanically. I bought her 4 years ago with a 4inch full traction flex arm kit and bald Mickey Thompson claws with 56k on her. First thing was the 33 inch toyo open country's almost 3 years ago. About this time is when I really started getting into wheeling. I had the milk jugs and loved them till I discovered how cool it would look with them off haha. From there stuff started to fly off, jugs, rear seat, fenders, and spare off the back (which is now where the back seats use to be), plus some other stuff. I replaced front and rear bumpers. Put in a centerforce dual friction clutch (old one blew), new cooling system, and bought recover gear(jack, straps, d rings, etc) I have removed carpet and bedlined it, painted interior, replaced seats,put in 3 point retractable harnesses, removed the rear seat, and installed a cb and sound pods (one is already broken:/). For the exterior did minor stuff trim fenders & paint them, and a lot of touch up work. For summer time I purchased a smittybilt cargo net and safari top that I love and have no complaints about.
Even though it's small minor touch up and details that have been givin attention it has changed a lot in my prospective. I have also come to realize i love painting things! Little nik naks that personalize it my
The future hopefully consist of:
New soft top for sure
Flat fenders with no flare up front
Sye&cv so I can remove tc drop
D44or 8.8 replacement rear axles
35 inch MUDs not sure which ones yet
Regear to 4:88 or 5:13 if I replace front axle too.
Clayton long arm upgrade(hopefully with stretch)
Motor swap when the 4 cyl blows.
But this is probably stuff that will take a very long time and I realize that it needs to be tackled 1 QB at a time. Hopefully when a job comes my way I can start with the real stuff.
Oh and this semester of college i am taking my first welding class so that I can learn how to do my own work. Even though its a oxy acetylene class it will come in handy as you can see my hitch mounted mini BBQ. Don't mind the poop welds :P I'm just starting haha. Kinda hard to see it.
That's about it enjoy. First pic is my first time wheelin it :P oops. Second is the summer after, and the rest are these past 2 years. Now she had 81k.

My Jeep from July 2010 to May 2011. post your pics
So, this is my jeep when it bought it to now. Lets see yours! (And yes I know there is another thread about this, but my goal is to make this one where people actually talk about each others jeeps, not just post up pics and ignore 99% of them. )
