plans for the future:

6 1/2 lift
front and rear bumper
winch
upgraded axles
roof rack
upgrade lights
arb lockers with compressor
and who knows what else there always something that you want for your jeep thats all for now and keep you updated with plenty of pics any ideas let me know iam willing to listen i want a capable offroader plus a good dd love to play in the mud not much rocks really so if that elps give me some ideas on what i need not to get stuck in the mud it would be greatly appreciated

What made you decide to put the filter on top of your roof like that? And what brand roof rack is that? I wanna buy one.

Other than that, what a steal man. 2dr, 5speed, 4x4...you struck gold

looks like a bad place and bad idea...filter gets wet...sucks water into te motor and drains rain water in there while not driving...I would ditch that for potential problems

Yes! Turn that into a snorkel , the last thing you want is water in your engine

Alot of people face the snorkels forward which is good for air flow but it will catch rain and snow etc, if u angle it straight but facing down a little that would be best in my honest opinion
