Default Project Tax Return

Ok, so my wife finally gave me the green light to start building the XJ using part of our tax return. You can all talk trash about me getting my wife to "let" me spend my money, but as most married men know, the wife wears the pants.

Anyhow, the parts list is as follows:
t-case(on order)
race seats(in mail)
RC 4.5" lift
33" tires
black steel rims
tune up kit
temp sensor
front wheel bearings
roof rack
lights
hi lift

Issues already addressed:
brakes
water pump
thermostat
radiator


So far my biggest issues has been getting parts, so VENDORS HELP ME OUT!
I have problems because I'm in the Army, currently stationed at Camp Casey S. Korea, so I need to find someone who will ship my lift to my APO address, wheels and tires too possibly.
This is her as of now

Marriage is about compromise... I just lucked out and married a Jeep Girl.

Good luck on the build and have fun!

X 2...... if i truly wanted something id get it regardless, likewise for my wife as well. It is compromise. My wife would never " forbid" me to buy something. I wheel and deal enough to support my expensive hobbies without ever having to dip into the bank acct usually

Yes I am command sponsored, in Area I no less. As far as getting the Jeep into the ville, no dice. I will get some photos of what the ville looks like nowadays. Was it Philipino when you were here? Russian?

Hoping GRIMMUS99XJ over at Rough Country can hook me up with some shipping. Probably going to get the 4.5" x-series lift. Its pretty much gonna have the same lift as every freakin body has on this site. But thats all right, because its gonna be at the height I need. Not too high, but high enough. What were some issues any of you ran into while installing this lift? How much vibrations were you getting with out shims? SYE needed or suggested?

Well here is a good question when you finally come back state side will you be allowed to take the jeep or will you have to strip it of it's parts.

Got my shipping quote back from Jason at Rough Country, $210 plus the $800 lift kit. Looks like shipping is going to take up half of my budget. At least Auto Zone ships to APO for free!
I try to buy as much from them as possible!

lol yea its hard to find places to ship to apo.. even for little stuff.. when i was in iraq, i bought an nitro-rc car and my parents had to pour the fuel into 2liter sprite bottles to get it to me... even places that sell army gear wouldnt ship it to you... lol i cant even imagine trying to get parts for my jeep there..
