So I've had my jeep for over a year now but never got to starting a build for it. I've done a lot to it since I've owned it so ill slowly bring it up to date

Got it October of 2012,

First thing I did was install some kc driving lights and got the windshield tint strip.

Oh, btw, it's a 95 4.0, auto, 4x4. Had a really nice interior and came with a nice Bluetooth head unit. Exterior was ok, paint chipped a little bit, and had some typical North east rust.

Next thing was I bedlined the rockers with some duplicator roll on bedliner.

Looked good but was a pain to clean when it was dirty and started to fade after a while.

Convinced my parents to let me buy some bumpers cause I planned on offroading and needed some recovery. Ordered nates4x4 front and rear.

Best shot of rear on it when it was stock. My dads truck makes mine look puny.

That Christmas Eve, me and my cousin decided to go find some puddles and found some decent ones one the side of the road. Later it ran pretty bad so checked the forum and found out it was the tps so got that replaced.

New one from advanced. Cleaned the throttle body while I was there.

Got some goodies! Super 10 muffler and 3.5 inch tip as well as h4 upgrade harness. Muffler is very loud, just how I like it, but drones at 1600 rpm

Here's a picture of the tip installed.

Around that times, I picked up some tires off of Craigslist. 33x12.5 pro comp mts. 2 were pretty new and two were probably 50%

White 95 XJ Teen build-image-280186786.jpg

Got to installing the harness with some help from my dad. Wasn't that good with wiring but my dad is a handy guy. Also installed h4 housings (forget which brand) and some hella bulbs.

Also forgot to mention but before exhaust was welded, I had to get the gas tank replaced cause the muffler shop said it was leaking. So had a brand new tank installed at my dads friends shop.

February of 2013, order a 3 inch x-series lift with new leaf springs from Rough Country. Was on a budget but I can't complain about the lift a year later. Also ordered some summit black d-window wheels. 15x8 3.75 backspacing.

All waiting to be put on.

Wish I chose to do the lift myself but didn't have the know how or patience to do it back then. Had two of my dads employees do it for me. They ran in to some trouble with the rust but got it finished in a couple days.

Midway through

All finished up. Fell in love with my new jeep.

Rode pretty harsh but I was used to driving stiff suspension trucks anyway. Overall, I'm pretty happy with how it looks but now I wish it were a little higher.

Was bored one day so decided to do a cowl snorkel after seeing some write ups on it. Another job that my dad helped out with. Wish it were cleaner but it's a cool home brew sorta upgrade.
All finished.
White 95 XJ Teen build-image-1602686977.jpg
Hole in cowl firewall. Was a pain in the ***, only had a ****ty drill bit so that took a while. Cleaned it all up with lots of rtv and is still working out good after a year.

Love mud but wish I didn't. A ***** to clean and didn't help with the rust situation.

Took me a while to grow the courage to trim my fenders but one day I did. Only did the front cause it started to rip up my tires. Came out decent for never doing any bodywork. Threw some bedliner on the lip.

Liked the look a lot so took off the rear flares to do later.

Went offroading a few times with a buddy who's got an expedition.

White 95 XJ Teen build-image-3095977607.jpg

One night , we went to a new spot down by the Delaware river and got into a predicament.
He drove through the river bed and found a soft spot.
White 95 XJ Teen build-image-3748232156.jpg

Tried pulling him out but failed at that. Came back next morning to discover high tide.

White 95 XJ Teen build-image-2308704189.jpg

Had my dad bring the backhoe to pull him out cause my jeep and a duramax had no luck.

A buddy (different one) of mine bought a cherokee lifted and beat up.
So we decided to have some fun In his backyard.

I did lots of maintenance all along but no need for pictures of that.

Had to do a valve cover gasket cause it leaked a little bit and I couldn't hurt to get a new gasket under there.
White 95 XJ Teen build-image-2327369515.jpg
Painted the cover to make it purty
White 95 XJ Teen build-image-2039171684.jpg

Also threw on a t-case drop and adjustable track bar from iron rock. Really happy with iron rock.
White 95 XJ Teen build-image-366651280.jpg
Also made a flag carrier following the write on here.
White 95 XJ Teen build-image-2037412352.jpg

And bought some kc lights from seriousoffroad. It looked goofy like that but I liked it and they were bright.

White 95 XJ Teen build-image-2168222372.jpg

After that, I went on vacation to outer banks and took the jeep down so that'll be coming. And somehow, it made it down and back with no problems.

I forgot about a trip to the pines barrens in jersey before the outer banks. My friend took a bunch of pictures.
