So after being on here for a while i figure ill start a build thread not many pics. as of now because i didnt plan on making a build thread but ill try.

I first started with a 1999 classic stock 4.0 dana 30 dana 35 np 242 sorry no pics. as stock but we all know what they look like onto what ive done first was a 3 inch lift and a crappy front bumper and some cheap for lights


Then added cragar soft 8s and some cheap bald31s



Then went door less for the summer added a roof rack got rid of the hideous front bumper and added a hoop to the stock bumper and flexed it at 4.5 inches of lift



Then added RC long arms bedlined half way up the truck swapped out the D35 for a C8.25 and added some 32 inch KM2s i got 4 of them for 400 15000 miles on them added rock sliders JCR stage 3 used for 170 added a ZJ drag link and cowl lights



Then went wheeling and tested out the long arms my new RC N2.0 shocks and KM2 and ill i can say is i love these KM2s these tires grip everything



Then flexed it and finally got it drop coils but new shocks are still to short



Then built a front bumper all metal was free its not for strength its mainly for looks and to keep cops off my @$$ for no front bumper


Thats it for now ill try to keep updated with things but i dont like taking alot of pictures
