Default Unleashed Jeep Build

whats up everyone, ive been working on my jeep since January and so far this is what i have done to...also i bought my jeep around last October and had it sitting because of registration issues. I bought it because i have a F150 but nothing can wheel like a Jeep!
As of now i am 18 and my first year in college and have done all my work for my truck and Jeep

-Custom front and back bumper
-Replace alternator with 160amp one
-replace starter to be more reliable
-4.5 RC short arm kit
- Procomp steelies 15x8
-Re-did interior ceiling
- Replace headlights
-install new sound system with 2 12" for some noise
- Bed liner paint job
-Home made roof rack
-Dana 44 rear
-also minor other things

also soon to come
- New home made winch bumper with 8000lbs winch
- roll cage
- 6.5 RC Long Arm kit with 35's

Might come in the future:
4 Link in the rear
37in tires


before anything:


then started the interior ceiling



after i finished that the next this came in

this is a picture before the lift

then after

put some better tires and wheels on and made a front bumper since i didnt like the tube bumper

then went out with the boys


then i got a free 8000lbs winch from a buddy

then paint job time



but here are some recent pictures






my friends jeep

then got back home and worked on my roof rack




while i was at it i built some sliders






and recently i put a Dana 44 in the rear because i snapped my Dana 35
picture of my dana 35

and then the dana 44

Let me know what everyone thinks, and as of now this is what i did last
not sure if anyone would mine me posting a picture of my truck but its my first truck that i got when i was 16 and paid for it my self. I got it fully stock with nothing on it and did everything myself

Wow! Great build dude. I say you throw a detroit in that D44.

Are you a drug dealer? Or have some sweet legal job that supports your toys?

i want to throw a ARB but not sure if the dana 44 will hold up because i want to add a 4 link in the back to do some serious crawling

but no nothing illegal, everything i do is legal because i plan on joining the sheriffs department. As of right now i am a full time freshmen college student and right after my classed i head to my dads mechanic shop and keep it open running the business till late hours to help him and keep some cash

only reason why i can afford this is because im not the stupid average teen ager that goes out every weekend and spends his money on stupid stuff,

I am clean and never done drugs and plan on following my sisters foot steps to join the sheriffs department

here are a few pics but you basically have to take apart the whole interrior walls, once you do that the ceiling slides out

then you pull everything off, get the fabric you want, shape it and glue it on with the 3m fabric spray glue









while i was at it, i painted the plastics
