So... I inherited this jeep from a family friend who passed away. It came with the snorkel, ARB bumper, warn winch, full 3" OME lift installed. It also came with a spare np231j t-case (it has a slip yoke eliminator but it's a very thin low profile looking one, not the longer ones like I've seen before), a Dana44 axle and a 5sp tranny that I sold to put some money in the "jeep fund", so since I never did a build thread with my last jeep I figured I might as well do one for this one, however slow the build may be ha

First thing I did was get new wheels. I went with American Racing (AR23 if I remember right)

Then I cut and folded the front fenders. I took the rear off too but decided to put them back on because I didn't really like the way it looks without bumper caps. So until I get a new rear bumper I will leave them on

EDIT: my timeline was off this was the first thing I did ha

All bolted in. Still need to finish the breaks. Been really busy with finishing up the semester and transitioning from my school year job and summer job but I am picking up new break lines today
