Expedition Bray-El

So I guess I'll go ahead and make a build thread for my Jeep. Seems like a good way to document and share my Jeeps progress. For starters, my Jeep's name is Bray-El, which is kind of a play off of my great grandfathers name who was Native American. It's a 2005 TJ Sport with a 4.0L 6cly.

I believe this picture was taken the day after I got her. It had 1.75" coil spacers, 31" Duratraxs, 17" chrome wheels and some long bump stops (I forget how long).

Then went on a Rampage Trail Top.

I started wheeling a bit and realized my suspension setup was terrible.

Then I put in a Bestop Modular Rack System.

Now here she sits with an Old Man Emu 2.5" heavy duty lift with nitrogen sport shocks.

Next up is a JKS rear adjustable track bar (waiting to be installed as soon as I can figure out a way to get the old one out ), a front adjustable track bar and some quicker discos.

Another thing I'm working on is a rooftop mounted basket. I don't want all the weight of a full sized roof rack and I wanted a rack that mounted over the front two seats so that I could continue to store my windows under the top in the rear. I will use my Bestop basket that I had on the inside and an internal frame.

Front and rear track bars went in. One of my stock swaybar endlinks is busted so I've been driving around with the swaybar disconnected for a few weeks. I notice very little difference on the road so I may hold off on the quicker discos for the time being. I also want to look more into the Currie Antirock. The plan for December is a 1" body lift, motor mount lift and a lot of wheeling!
