so im starting my build thread after i started my build. so ill have to post what has been done so far. A few months after my 16th birthday my mom decided to buy a new car (camaro) so i got the jeep as a handme down, best one ever, she bought it off of craigslist back in 03/04 stock and stayed that way till i got it. First thing i did was put a roof rack on it. Then came the brush guard (westin?). Next were the home built sliders (not built by me) i bought all of these things off of craigslist. somewhere in the mix of this my youth stupidity decided to waste good money on a deck, speakers and subs, now that i have them i cant get rid of them ( love thumping out ricers and lowriders). i built my own speakerbox in my school woodshop on our cnc wood router. we got it new last october and i had to teach the teacher hahaha. For my birthday i painted my rims John Deere Blitz black. I also attempt to paint my roof rack wind fering every month.

my plans for the future (in order of importance):
lift kit (3 inches)
Tires (a/ts)
4x4 bumpers Front and rear(with spare tire rack) (homebuilt)
offroad Lights galore hopefully HID
intake and exhaust
hood vents

im not made of money so these wont be overnight but since i need new shocks and my leaves are sagging the wrong way i think i have just about convinced my dad to help me pay for it. crossing my fingers
