Looks better without the jugs!
 
Think I need to do that to mine...the jugs are pretty shabby!

Pink_Percy 04-06-2013 06:43 PM

Looking good. Is thatimpact orange?

Fireaxe 04-07-2013 11:54 PM

Yes it is...My favorite color on the LJ.

Kota7x 04-08-2013 12:37 AM

What are your plans for your LJ? Keep it on the stock side or go up? Either way im subscribed! :thumb:

Fireaxe 04-09-2013 12:06 PM

Here's the short list.

First: all normal maintenance. Tune up, fluids, balance tires.

Go with BB for now until I can put a high quality 3in lift on.
Wheels and tires are to be sold.
31Firestone Destinations ( left over from an old truck)
More than likely black wheels.
Swap tops for a softopper frameless soft-top
Bedline the tub, bumpers, fenders, chrome around headlights, maybe the grill
Stereo and speaker upgrade. No additional subs...maybe upgrade stock one.
Sliders with sidestep.
Cb
Decals
Off-door mirrors or brackets.

Short shopping list.......

Love my impact orange LJ.

Brad48178 05-09-2013 06:12 PM

Hey fireaxe, thanks I wasn't sure how to pm pics so here you go. The lights were on it when I bought it and the hood I taped off using blue painters tape scuffed up the bubble and sprayed it using rust-oleum bed liner. They make a decal but their like $40.00/$50.00 bucks.

Rayko 05-09-2013 06:27 PM

Fireaxe,
I'd like to make a suggestion, end caps for your stock bumpers. The caps really finish them off nice.

@Rayko: I've thought about that..not sure what route I'm going to go with a bumper so leaving it stock (minus Jugs) for now.

WF decals on!

How do you post pics from your desk top I have impact orange tj that I would like to share some pics but don't know how.

Fireaxe 05-20-2013 02:00 PM

Impulse buy at 4wheelparts. Went in looking for safari straps and walked out with grab handles....Just haven't gotten around to making my own...In due time.

So for now here are the Smittybuilt grab handle combo kit.
2 premium grab handles, molle straps, 1 compass/tire gauge etc pouch
and 1 flashlight / knife pouch.

Lets see if I like'em....

Top off...ready for some sun shine.

Fireaxe 07-28-2013 01:00 PM

Drove to work Friday night and everything was fine, but on the drive home I experienced some "death wobble" like symptoms from the Jeep around 60mph +.
I'm going to get it rebalanced and realigned to see if that fixes it.

Looking good. What are you going to do with the factory hard top when you swap it out?

Hey bud,
I purchased this used and it didn't come with a hardtop, just the factory soft-top.
