Default Tron- 97 2door build

Hey everybody, though I may as well do a build thread, jeep has come a long way the last 2 years..
Ill try and find some stock pictures, dont have them on the new computer..

Basically, bought the jeep completely stock, 1997, 2 door 5-spd.
Wheeled a bit, daily drove, did a stereo etc.. than needed some new tires.
Got some 30" Mt/r's on eagle alloy wheels. Didnt fit without trimming (was clueless) so I bought the 3" Rough country kit.

Few months later ripped my bumper off, so I replaced it with a custom fabbed one, along with a roofrack etc..

Lots of wheeling, dents, trimming, new hellas, a lovely notice and order vehicle inspection , and some ugly homemade flares. Drove it for a little longer, than decided to go a little more.

2 inches more lift, and some sway bar disconnects, and here is how she sits today! Im so happy with the disconnects and extra lift. Flexes like crazy! Now need some extended bumpstops before I throw some 33's on, and even now with the 30s! Will get some flat ground pics, and will hopefully try out an RTI this week. Hope you like.

Would like feedback!
