Just avoid replacing the RC shocks with ProComp ES-3000, Rancho R5000, or Skyjacker Nitro, those ride just as bad as the RC shocks do.

Your Jeep looks good!
Thanks a lot... I figured the shocks would be a relatively inexpensive thing to replace if i needed to. i thought considering i was riding on 10 year old shocks rough country shocks would have to be better, but they're pretty bouncy. i'm probably going to give it a little longer before i decide if i want new ones and if i do, i might buy some ome or re shocks

Perhaps you could need some 0.5-1" spacers on the front springs to level it out..
well, yeah you are right about the lights, they are some cheap ones that were on there when i bought it and never did anything about. about the spacers, i plan on getting the back bumper which will weigh the back down a bit and maybe make it a little closer, if it doesn't, i might have to do that.

those mirrors are homemade. I used some mirrors that i found at autozone (look like big blind spot mirrors) and bolted them to an aluminum tube and bolted them through the hinge. I can send you some pics of them if you want.

Lift, Wheels, & Tires on - Pics

1999 Jeep Wrangler Sport

How it looked when I bought it in 2006 with a 2" BB and 33x12.50 tires.


Shortly after, I bought the Bushwacker fender flares and Warrior Products Diamond plate side panels.





I finally figured out why everyone says you never really finish building your Jeep.

A couple months ago, I decided I wanted to lift my Jeep 4" because the 2" budget boost was not giving my 33x12.50's enough room to breathe. So I bought the 4" Rough Country suspension lift. I know, it is a cheaper lift, but I got what I can afford and so far have not had any problems with it other than it rides Rough.





So about a week ago I got brand new Mickey Thompson Classic II rims and brand new Dick Cepek Mud Country 33x12.50x15 tires.
