ok so i recently picked up a 99 4.0 5 speed 2 door with 160k on the clock and a 3.5 rustys lift. AKA "the little guy". Just like the rest of you guys i just cant roll around town in a stock truck. My DD is a dodge loaded up with a cummins layin down 410hp. so anyway my buddy hooked me up with 3 new 31x10.5 mastercraft a/t2 which will have to work for now the 4th should be here this week along with a pair or sway bar disco's.

the other stuff that is in the works are:
bumpers
sliders "as of right now the rockers are staying"
half doors "as soon as i can find a junk yard 2 door"
square tube roof rack

I run a welding and fab shop so this should be an interesting project.
any other metal working ideas would be great as im going to use the little guy to showcase the shop.

heres a pic of my gf's dads streched cj5 before the full widths and 40's

Tube doors would be fairly easy if you can weld.
