I am 16 and this is my first car bought it for $1800 going to be a slow thread but still pretty steady.A little late on the build thread already started but only on interior and do not have before pictures.

What I have now: 5 inch lift including 2 inch steel blocks not sure what brand of lift I bought it lifted, 34" Superswamper TSL Bias worn down, Rough Country steering stabilizer, now shocks in rear, just got new headliner from 97' xj in, and cleaned seats and carpet.

Future: New tires either DuraTracs or KM2, New paint job going to be murdered out with smoked headlights and everything, regear, BW fenders, I gonna stop here to much to list but it will all end up to hopefully a 4bt Cummins swap

How the "Green Monster" is as of right now.

Well have not been able to get anything for just been fixing some leaks like replacing radiator hose and power steering pressure. Just got enough for tires and wheels getting Discover STT Cooper Tires and probably soft 8's 15x10. Did some light wheelin though in free time after school.

Ya I am so glad I got a 2 door instead of four there just something about them that look so much better. The wheels I am ordering next week http://www.jegs.com/p/Cragar/Cragar-...51052/10002/-1 going with 15x10 instead of 15x8. After that I am painting it either red camo, desert tan, or everything black.

How do you think this would look on jeep?

hurry up with those tires, we need more pics...lol I think the red camo would look good, and would be different, seems like everyone is going olive drab or desert tan now, i had been thinkin about paintin my olive drab for some time and right when i finally decided to do it like three other people on here from ABQ decided to do it too..lol its all good though i don't mind, paint it red camo and get some more shots once you get the new wheels and tires..lol Jeep looks great man.

why the 15x10 thats a wide wheel. you'd be fine with a 15x8 with a 12.5 wide tire. redneck bead lock

Ya it just hit me all of the sudden as I was typing what I wanted to paint it that Red Camo would look sweet and never seen it before. If you have never been in a tire warehouse it is a sight to see haha glad I am 16 if I was 70 I woulda had a heart attack.

I am trying to get these tires on some wheels as soon as possible and I picked 15x10 cause I like the wiiide look. You think I could put these tires on my stock wheels for now while I save up for the ones I want then switch them over?

Went wheeling again today it is an addiction.
