Fairly new to the Forum thing, but I figured I'd give my build, or rebuild a shot.

Bought new in 1997 and within a week installed a 3" Teraflex lift, AA sye and cv driveshaft with 32x11.5x15 BFG AT's. Warranty? What warranty!!
Most of my wheeling was on local beaches or in the mud on a friends land in PA so I really don't have a whole lot of off road experience.

Had 4 KC 130w daylighters on an overhead light bar which I replaced with a Kargo Master congo cage and safari rack. I do a lot of camping and needed the storage space. Installed a Tough Lights 43" led light bar using Axia Alloy mounts on to the cage. The cage lifts up to change tops or put the soft top up or down. With the light bar I used a deutsche connector.

Next up are Metalcloak rear CA's

My build plan is, as money presents itself:

Metalcloak 3.5" springs
MC Disco's
Currie steering
UCF engine and TC skids
Savvy GTS
ARB's front and rear w/ 4:56 gears (have the ARB comp already)
35's
Bushmaster flat flares

Not sure if I will build up the Dana 30 or swap it out for a G2 Dana 44 frt assembly. Your opinions are appreciated! Either way I will be replacing knuckles, ball joints, hubs etc.

Black magic pads and centric rotors.

It will be a labor of love and no doubt take a while to complete.

The ride is fantastic and way better then before. The arms absorb bumps and road irregularities extremely well. Cornering feels tighter ( I know it's not a Ferrari) but I find myself driving faster. Anyone that chooses to go with Metalcloak will definitely be happy!! Have not wheeled them yet though but I think they will be awesome. Wheeling is pretty much non existent around here unless you hook up with a Club Upstate (2 hour drive) or Rausch Creek (3 hour + drive) I'll wait until I complete more of my rebuild first before heading out.
