figured i give this build thread thing a try

anyways, i didn't start taking pictures of all my modifications while i did them because i wasn't on the forum and no one but me really cared, might still be the case but oh well, so these are the earliest pictures i have of PEEJ as he was named by my fiancee

before i get started here i wanted to mention that I got the jeep from my older brother and he had the windows tinted. i saw the potential and ran with it. i worked at a body shop and got some wheels of a junk jeep in the yard painted them black and threw them on Peej. i now am kicking myself for not taking more of the junk jeep. i couldve rebuilt my whole jeep from it

in the process of getting the rear bumper on but can't these rusty bolts off

took it to the body shop i used to work at to get them to cut the bolts off and install the bumper, i figured while it's there i might as well get the whole in the driver's side floor pan fixed

anyways this is my daily driver and i put about 3000 miles on it a month. i am just getting in to offroading

plans

3in rough country lift with new rear leaf springs
and 31 inch tires
either cowl induction or snorkel (i really like dukie's write up https://www.cherokeeforum.com/f67/my...snorkle-67919/ )

trying to decide what rims to get, definitely wanna stay with the whole black on black theme but everyone has craggers...
