Just wanted to get some thoughts. I have a 2000 sport with 170,xxx miles. Just finished paying it off and was thinking about doing a mild build 4.5" lift 33s. I respond to my fire station with bad roads in the winter and just wanna play a little bit with it. body is clean with no rust. Paint is starting to bubble a little bit on the roof. Do you think this jeep would be worth a small build or does it have to many miles to start. I know some will post that you can build with any miles but I am not intrested in redoing the whole motor after building it. Please let me know what ya think?

Both my jeeps have had higher mileage when I started building them. 170 isnt bad. Build away. I vote that you piece together a 4.5" lift...it saves money, and you can pick what you want and what you dont. I did and im pretty happy with my setup. I only regret not going long arms from the get go.

Thanks I was only worried because of the added stress I would be putting on the drive train. I have a few bugs to work out before I start the build though. Thanks for your help.
