This is where I and it started, I had no idea at the time what it would become.

The next step was Rough Country 3.5 lift kit.

Then some reverse lights, half doors and 31's.

Sooner or later, I added a bumper and winch.

For protection, I've stuck with an early plan of a second cross member and some plating.

The Jeep stayed on 31's for several years.

But then it became time for 35's.

Which to me meant a HP D44 with a Ford 9 inch, and a couple extra inches of lift. (Rough Country 4.5 coils with ACOS. DPG 5.5 leafs and 1.5 shackles)

And you might as well go all out.

Flat top Dedenbear knuckles, TNT Truss, Detroit locker, and hydro assist.

And for the 9 inch, a True HI-9 third member, Ford 8.8 brakes and a Detroit locker.

And since the half doors take up too much room, I made tube doors.

And most recently the fuel tank has been moved up, away from the rocks.

Next I have plans for a halo cage and boatsides kinda like these..

And sooner or later a 231/231 doubler for the t-case..

I'll post up as I get more done. And if you see anything you're wondering about in my photos, just ask.
