I really like to see that someone your age doing this can speak, spell and use grammar!
Thanks
Thank You! It's not often that I receive compliments on my linguistic ability but it is much appreciated. Knowledge truly is power in my book haha. Oh, and I'm 16 now.

Nperryman: Tires are currently 30x9.5xr15 Radial Mud King XT's rolling on stocker wheels. I'm working on acquiring some 32x11.50xr15 BFG KM2's though, as well as some black Soft 8's with 4 inch BS to help prevent rubbing. Fenders are probably going to need to be trimmed soon as well to help. But yep, that's the plan, we'll see how it goes..

Good Choice! as much as I like the look of OD Green Jeeps, I realized that the only paintwork I should be doing on mine is to maybe touch up the white and rust spots if needed, other than that, keep it looking fresh in white.

I'm liking what I see man, I just turned 16 last weekend and am going to start to put on my lift tonight. Working on a budget sucks but oh well.

Today, I high pressured washed the underbody pretty good and then painted the differentials and trim, took a good while to do, but i'm happy with the end result.


-Before, you can't really see how bad it looks from here, and i didn't really want to paint this much black but Chrysler basically screwed me by putting on those stupid trim/stripe stickers, so when i peeled it off it was left looking pretty bad, and needed to be painted.
Here's how it looked up close, and in real life I guess.
Taped and Primed.


Finished Product. (It looks a whole lot better in person, it looks much more black and not so grey like it does in the picture.)
Next up I painted the differentials that blue color. (And it also looks a little darker in person without the flash) This picture kind of shows how it looks, the others had flash and are kind of bright.
And the Rear.
Could someone possibly confirm for me that I do indeed have a Dana 35 Rear and Dana 30 Front Axle? Because I'm not familiar enough with them to recognize by sight, but based on the year and model of the jeep those are what i'd assume they'd be.

-And some more pictures.
Supplies.
I should have more updates tomorrow if everything goes as planned.

Wiggles: Good Luck, and I am gradually nearing my cash limit as well until I can procure some more.

MikesJeep: I like it man, I love "our" body style and color haha.

Fallenknight308: imo it's more than an addiction, it's a life long commitment.

Having a new lift is the best feeling, and for sure it is!
