paolos04lj Well, more parts came in! Everything is here except for the SYE, that comes in tomorrow. Then I had to send one tire back because it was for 17inch rim, and I only got 4 rims, the fifth one should be in this week or next! Sunday is the day that everything is gonna be installed, can't wait!

Feels like Christmas! :-)

I bought my 04 LJ about 5 months ago, already loaded out. The PO did all the work for me.

04 Lj Build

Well here goes nothin!!

How's it goin everybody. Been a Jeep fan for a while now. Can't get enough of them(you'll see why). When I was in high school my parents bought me a 05 Jeep Liberty 4X4 Limited, it was a great starter Jeep. Never did anything crazy to it, just a 2" lift, bigger tires, lights on the roof, and a sound system. Loved it to death! Had that for about 4 1/2 years and decided to part with it.

Pictures of the Liberty (can't find any pictures of it when it was stock)



A couple years after I sold the liberty, I decided to get back into Jeeps again, real jeeps! In August 2010 I bought my first wrangler. It was a 2001 TJ Sport. Only had a 2" spacer lift and 15X10 rims. Of course that didn't sit well with me, so I had to mess with it!

Back when I bought it Aug 2010

Before


After


Then I had the opportunity to upgrade to a Lj. So why not, sold the TJ and bought the LJ! The TJ was purchased from a guy in New York, so he had a truck pick it up.

Bye bye TJ




I also bought the LJ from out of state, Oklahoma. And had it shipped down as well. It already had a 6" Rough Country lift, 35" Pitbull Rockers, SYE, a old currie winch bumper, a old warn winch, and a bumper/tire carrier.



And of course it wast gonna stop there. I put 4.56 gears, lockers, diff covers, new bumper, new winch, the list goes on.



Then........ I decided to get a Jku. So I sold the LJ and bought a 08 Jku Rubicon.

Before



After



I loved the JKU like crazy! Couldn't of been happier! But unfortunately I had to let it go, it wasn't what I wanted to do, but I had to... My job wasn't working out too good, ended up doing what I had to do, which meant sell it, and pay everything off. I paid off my wife's car, bills, and paid my truck off. So I'm officially debt free except for my mortgage of course. But I wasn't happy.... Not owning a Jeep sucked. So I ended up finding an 04 LJ with a hardtop, bone stock, rear view mirror dimmer, and stock premium sound. A older guy owned it and took good care of it. Only has 44,000 miles on it. He wanted to buy a travel trailer but he needed a truck first. So, guess what I did, I traded him my 04 F250 for his Jeep straight across! So bam! I'm back in business! Got me a 04 Lj and I can't wait to get started on it!

All that being said, I hope you guys enjoy this build (might see some similarities from my old LJ), hopefully it'll be my last! Oh and I broke away from the red! Figured I try silver for a change.
