So, this being my 3,000 post, I thought it'd be time to start a build thread...

So, here we go!

Now, I must give credit where credit is due. Without the help of a few key people, I wouldn't be where I am today. Thanks to my parents, somethingclever/Josh, and sfcherokeeguy/Mike. Thanks for all y'all have taught me and what y'all have done for me!


August 2010, the Jeep was purchased at a little small dealership. We paid $7600 out the door. Yes it was expensive and probably a little too high priced, but that was due to the high taxes at the time. Secondly, the Jeep had 58,000 with one owner. I, two years later, have about 76,000 miles on it. So, here is how the Jeep looked the day I got it. I'm the broad shouldered kid in the middle with my parents on the left and right. Giddy as a school child!

What I've done so far:
  1. Rubicon Express 2" Budget Boost
  2. Powertrac No-Slip
  3. CB radio
  4. Hella 500's (driving version)
  5. Black rims
  6. Lots of stickers
  7. Some sand that never leaves the inside

What my future plans are:
  1. Big boy lift! 5.5" of something
  2. Big boy tires, most likely 33's
  3. 4x4 conversion, AW4 to AX15 while I'm in there
  4. And too many other small things...

So, instead of going through with multiple posts of what I did and attempting to get everything, I'm just gonna post some of the pictures of it over the time and where it is now. Also, gonna have some commentary. So, enjoy!

This was my first wheeling. Can't really call it a trip since this mud hole is down the street. Too bad a bunch of JA's tear it up and have the police some out there.

These next two pictures were my first real stuck. Drove off the water covered shell road into a drainage pond. Sunk the front axle tube nice and deep.
