Just ordered the rampage frameless top, and bedlined the tub

I like what you've done with the jeep, looks sweet! :thumb:

Mulvihill64 04-14-2013 10:09 PM

Thanks. Ill try and snap some pics of the interior when I take the top off to put the rampage top... Hopefully nj will have some warm weather this week to help me out

Neal5280 04-14-2013 10:12 PM

I feel your pain. It was snowing yesterday here and today it was 70 and sunny. Then in the 40's the rest of the week. I just want summer so the top and doors can be off! :banghead:

Mulvihill64 04-17-2013 05:49 PM

Well brown Santa delivered my top today and I'm going to try to put it on tonight and if it's too cold then leave the windows out until tomorrow afternoon

I have a tj with the same color, but different bumpers. Excited to see what you do and how it turns out! Il be getting a 4.25 inch lift on 33's.

Nice rig! Can't wait to see it lifted

Mulvihill64 05-15-2013 05:34 PM

Ok so I have a budget of roughly $1500 this summer to do some upgrades. I'm planning on 33's (not included in $1500). Any suggestions.

I mean how high do you want it? The 4.25 inch combo lift by zone offroad is great, and only 600 which includes all the upgrades (quick disconnects, nitro shocks, and colored shock boots) zLeaving you 1000 dollars to send to me for the help:)

Mulvihill64 05-15-2013 09:55 PM

I've been debating between the 4.25 or just doing a 1.25" bl and 1" Mml but I'm thinking since I eventually want to run 35's the 4.25 may be a better idea

Yeah. The 4.25 really is the best for the price. You don't have to change all your driving shaft and all that. Just an easy lift. Save the 800 on install and just pay 20 for a case of beer and invite your friends to help

Mulvihill64 05-15-2013 10:13 PM

I would definitely do it myself... I can't see paying practically double for work I can easily do myself

I just ordered a led light bar off of amazon for pretty cheap. I also will be ordering an aluminum radiator and an under the hood compressor. I made flat flares by trimming them yesterday. Maybe some nice rock sliders. These are all on my list. It's coming along though. Did you get bump stop extensions and new shocks with your bb?

Mulvihill64 05-15-2013 10:24 PM

Yeah I did

Well today I swapped in my dana 44 rear I stole on craigslist for $400 the swap went pretty smoothly thanks to my friends air tools. A good impact wrench and air ratchet are now on my must buy list.

IMO it's alright if all you want is clearance. I am switching to bds springs and bilstein shocks for a better ride and more up travel... If I had to do it again I would just wait until I had the cash to do coils.

Brown Santa dropped this off today. Rolled both coats can't wait for it to dry.
I would highly recommend monstaliner to anyone. From my experience so far it seems like a great product. Their customer service is fantastic as well, with Magnetman on JF making sure my order shipped quickly so I could line my tub this weekend.

Sweet. Is that black or green?

Mulvihill64 07-26-2013 10:37 PM

Black. I am playing with the idea of doing the outside a color but it's not high on my list of things to do.
