i was just ganna post up from when i got the jeep up to now for some feedback and what have you. ill update as i add. its my first thread by the way ;)

as for the plans...

-HP 60 front
-14 bolt rear
-ARB front and rear
-rear stretch with custom corners, goin as far back while leavin all the back corner panel sorta like white crackers
-flares will all be removable and modled after my fenders with harsh arcs.
-repair frame and mount steering higher and forward doin a front streach. we will see how far
-coil overs in the front
-and misc body mods.
-roll cage with an agressive look

the style im lookin for is a clean rig to drive to the trails and ride great. i want it to have a military look as the green, still tryin to see how to incorparate this in the build

now im 19 and in college, money comes slow so will the build. its in the non-hardcore remember that but i hope to end with a jeep that is top notch and has attention to detail


bought it bone stock 97' tj with 58,000 miles about 2 years ago







and like all the kids out their i first blew money on the stereo and exuast :shaking:

fixin the frame.


this is how it looked after the accident for thoes that did not see...


first i had to cut the old cross member off with a Plasma cutter


got the new stock for the cross member. penny for refference, thought it would be beefier:wink:










ok i was just kiddin heres the new one

its still a huge improvment


too show the difference in thickness



clean it all up



we were about to bend it back but decided it would only weaken it. it was barely off and the jeep drives fine. im just ganna gusset the thing and move the steerin box up and forward a bit so i can streach the front down the road. too close any ways :)


welded it up
