ďOne piece at a timeĒ daily driver.

If you arenít a country music fan you may not get the ref, but thatís ok.

As the title states this build is going to be slow and one piece at a time as I have time and money.

Here are the before and after pics from installing the Rancho 2Ē sport lift with shocks. Gained about 2.5Ē in the front and 2Ē in the rear. Took about 3.5 hrs and would have been less if it wasnít for the pain in the arse front passenger shock, not easy to get to the top fastener.

Previous mods not pictured: rear seat recline spacers, 10Ē Jensen Sub w/ Rockford Fosgate R500XD1, Mopar rubber floor mats.

Over the next few weeks will be front bumper, rocker rails, and hitch.

I donít get the country music reference, but thatís a great looking Jeep and I look forward to following your progress.

Love the reference, and while sometimes I may do a couple at a time...
You'll know it's me when I come through your town
I'm gonna ride around in style
I'm gonna drive everybody wild
'Cause I'll have the only one there is around.

Enjoy the build, Iíll follow!

Rancho has a rebate going on now:

Quadratec gave me a great quote going through the forum.

Just got my 3Ē Rancho lift kit in the mail a few days ago ?.

Next Iíll need a tire carrier, steering stabilizer, and of course some 35s. Considering some RS9000s but I got a full set of RC shocks from a buddy for practically nothing so those are real tempting to just keep.

Added the Ruged Ridge Spartan front bumper today. I didnít read anywhere about having to take a cutting wheel to my brand new Jeep and then use a zip tie to attach the vacuum pump.

Quadratec QRC Side Armor with Step.

Mods complete until I can save up for a winch, suggestions welcome. This isnít going to be a serious off-road Jeep so I donít need a remote or controls mounted inside. Just enough if I find some mud/snow one day, or a busy in need.

Still deciding if I get 33ís for my factory 17Ē rims, or 15Ē black soft 8ís with 33Ē rubber for those. More now or later?

Yes, I get the reference, it is actually in my collection, heard it the other day... but, will your title weigh 50 lbs?

Nice build you have going there!
