ok so i got my first jeep and still learning everything (im only 17) but wanted to start my own build tread

its a 1990 160k i6 automatic it needs random things here and there but going to be a great project already have to put a new radiator in it because my cousin put a hole in the other one and already removed those stupid stepsides but havent had a chance to take more pictures

plans:
3in rough country lift
31X10.5R15 bfg all-terrains
some procomp steel wheels
New offroad lights
and fix what ever breaks along the way

thats 2" spacers in the front, 3 inch springs in the back, bedlined rockers and roof rack, cragar dwindows (outer ring painted with bedliner) and 31's
probably the easiest way to do your first lift
