Default My first Jeep build

Hey everyone, I just bought this jeep Friday and It's already a story.

I bought it for $1300 with 147xxx miles, and in real nice shape.

Yesterday I bought a rough country 3" suspension lift with rear springs and a steering stablizer for $600 total, which includes shipping.

I also bought the drivers side floor pans from quadratec, and I bought 4 Black Rock Series 975 Type Blade Steel Wheel's just now. Which ended up being about another $500-600.

I also am getting 4 AT2 general grabber from pepboys when the wheels come in.

Today I took the red stripe off, so it's already looking better. Tomarow I'm picking up some bedliner and putting it on the bottom where the stripes were, the fenders, and the door jams to prevent rusting.

I have to replace a light bulb (I have the light), replace the drivers side mirror, and the rear doors dont open from the outside. The rear door locks are frozen, so I'm going to pop off the door panels and check out what's wrong.

I bought a new tail pipe, and flowmasters super series 44 muffler, waiting to be installed.

I'm also wanting to tint all the window's does anyone know what the factory tint is?


Soon I want to put HID lights, a roof rack, with 6 HID spot lights on it and 2 facing the rear, an off road front bumper one from nates4x4, with a safari bar, winch mount, D rings, and spotlight mounts. Surprisingly only $475 for the bumper. I also want to put in a new sound system, with subs, redo the cloth on my sound bar (it's falling off), mod the jeep to use a double din headunit and get a 7in touch screen headunit with backup camera, a backup camera, and take out the carpet and put bedliner all in it, so I don't have a problem with the floors rusting, and getting it dirty as easy.

I'l try to post as many pictures as I possibly can!

Soo I have been riding around in my jeep with my old tags because the DMV hasn't been open, and I missed it Saturday. I went to the DMV to get temp tags right after school today. But when I was in the parking lot, a Mom in a mini van hit my rear bumper We pulled off to the side, and I checked the damage. None on my jeep ! The corner bumper was bent a little crooked but all I need to do is unscrew the two holes, and screw it back in and I'm good! Thank God that's all it was... I told the lady there was no damage so there was no reason to go any further. She was relived to say the least.
