Default 1996 Money Pit

Ok I've mainly been on and now I figured I would come over here and check things out. Here's my ride.

Here's how I bought it.
-4.0 with 5 speed trans and hand throttle
-np231 w/ SYE
-Optima Red Top
-New plugs, wires, water pump, belt, tstat
-Full gauge cluster swap w/ new sending units
-Front seats and rear bench from an 01
-Headliner from an 01
-Rubber floors in passanger area
-Kenwood CD player with I pod cable
-Custom length front and rear shafts w/ new joints
-LP front dana 30 from 01 w/ 4.10's and lockright
-8.25 from 01 w/ 4.10,s and a powertrax locker, BTF diff cover
-JCR rear bumper
-RE 3.5 Super Flex Lift Kit with full spring pack in rear
-ACOS up front
-DPG adj bump stop plates in rear
-Old Man Emu shocks on all four corners
-DPG flat belly skid
-Skid row gas tank skid
-Rock Sliders
-Jeep 16in wheels with 255/85/16 Maxxis Bighorns (33x10.50)

Here's what I did first thing when I got back home from buying it.

I bought it in time for the first snow here, and almost rolled it after staying up 35hrs straight haha.

First install was a cb/pa setup

Next installed a different cd player and fixed my a/c adjustment bar.

Pulled my buddies tree around for him

My buddy and I fabbed up a rear tire carrier

I had to replace my lock since some jerk thought they would try to get in and steal my stuff. Too bad they were retarded.

While in the door I went ahead and replaced the speakers.

Then the cig lighter had to be replaced.

This was a quick introduction to my rig, I'll post of the build pics and stuff after a bit. I'll also add some wheeling pictures in here.

Here is what I'm hoping to eventually do to it.
- build a front bumper
- build a cowl hood
- tint windows
- electric fan
- long arms
