My first Jeep an put lift on myself. 2000 TJ w/ JK suspension upgrade. 32" BFG Muds

Hello everyone. new here. i have just completed a successful BUDGET BUILD where i bought great almost new Rubicon tires from a young man in Velarde and he gave me as a bonus almost new 2015 Rubicon JK springs and shocks. my new to me TJ needed all around suspension rebuild. i was able to use the shocks and springs on mine along with coil spacers and longer bump stops.
my front end went well. just a little mod to bypass bar pins.
my rear end, well,..... you can guess. 3 of 4 shock bolts on top break off. OF COURSE. so, i took this opportunity to relocate bottom mounts and outboard my top mounts to outside the frame. No bar pins left on this girl.
i of course got 1.5" adapter spacers to fit the 255/75s and the newer bolt pattern to newer Jeeps. once again, worth all the effort.
BOOM. Modernized TJ. TJ with a little JK underneath her skirt. Honorary Rubicon degree.

Anyone in this forum wonder where i learned to do all this great Jeep stuff?
i learned how to do all this great stuff from reading Wrangler Forum.
i Will post photos!

THANKS!! Matthyou

Welcome to the Forum! Lots of great people and ideas here! And don't forget the Wave!

I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
