My Jeeps Life So Far...

Seen a lot of build threads and wanted to share what I have done so far. This is basically the story of my JKs life. There are a still a ton of trip pics I didn't upload. The day I brought my JK home I went straight out to the desert to test her out.



My first mod was the Mickey Thompson Classic IIs in black. Always loved the Classic IIs so when I saw them in black I had to have them.


My buddies TJ got stuck on one of our runs to Sugar Loaf Mountain Yeah he is that guy.



**Note when you rush off to save your buddy and snap photos of the rescue watch where you are going!!! Or you end up with a failed rescue attempt and your other buddy is taking photos of you.


Sheeps crossing in AZ.


So then it was time to put the TeraFlex 3" lift w/ Bilstein 5100 Shocks and 35 GY MTRs.

First trip out after lift I Tore the front driveshaft boot, was a good excuse to upgrade to Coast DS.


Next I put on the LoD rear bumper w/ tire carrier.



Added the TF antenna mount and Firestick.


With the lift and tires I had a ton of rubbing so I tore the front bumper apart until I could afford a new one.


On a Crown King run I found out that metal and rubber do not mix. There was a lot of nice gouges in my new tires from this pic.


My wheeling buddy and me on the AZVJC 101 run in January 2011.



Somethings Leaking, what is it???

Who thought that was a good idea to put the SS here? Nothing serious, move along.


Fixed previous issue along with some handling issues w/ the PP relocation bracket and drag link flip kit.


PP frame side brackets to add some strenth.



Another run to Crown King to test out recent additions.


Mustard, Mayo, and Relish...


Added the Aeroforce Gauge. Pretty cool little deal.



Added mirror relocation, flexible antenna, and PIAA lights.

Wired in with the Bussman Fuse/Relay box from Eric @ Wired Wagon. Eric was great to work with. The box is fully sealed and he customized it for my needs.


Added rocker switches to control accesories.



Bussman under the hood next to the battery.



CB, floor mats, grab handles, and the Smitty tail gate organizer.

Rock Krawler Deep Sump Tranny pan with Lube Lockers gaskets.



Contrary to popular belief the RK Tranny pan does not work with the RROR skids. Well unless you do some minor trimming.



This probably reduces strenght of the armor but I have the tranny pan backing it up so I am not worried.

RROR corner gaurds courtesy of Krawl Offroad again


Got some foam gasket from HD to seal up to the body panels.


PSC resistors, still have fast blink on the driver side


Lite dots installed and look great.


LoD front bumper installed with Super Winch ep9.



After it was all said and done I ended up not being happy with the LoD so I contact Jason again and got the PSC BFH front bumper.


More cutting on the JK.

Found out that the edisco must be flipped to run the BFH disco skid.


Post install pics of the BFH bumper.



The finished product to date....






Got a new toy so hopefully this will help with axle upgrades.


Hope you guys liked the pics.

Things I still want to do are flat fenders, 37s when the 35s wear out, chromo shafts, reid knuckles, rear DS, and I could go on and on. Just Empty Every Pocket

Thanks Marcus. He gets a little nervous on the vertical or off camber stuff but he is a trooper. He will sit in the Jeep with me all day and not complain. The washboards put him to sleep on the drive out usually. When we hit the highway he wakes up instantly and starts crying cause we left the dirt road. Ha ha. He is pretty cool little dude. We talk about articulation, suspension components, armor. When I pick him up from his Moms house he does a cursory walk around the Jeep looking for new parts.

WOW! I have been waiting for MONTHS to see these! It looks better than what I had hoped for. It has come along way and looks like with your new toy, we have a lot more ahead of us!

Your wheeling buddy looks like he is having a blast! It is great way for you two to have something to do as father and son. That is how memories are made!!

Oh, and check your mail buddy! You should have one more thing heading your way...

Thanks Jason, you were great to work with and sorry it took me so long to get the pics up. Between work, school, and taking care of the boy I thought I would never get all that shit installed. I had boxes everywhere for a while there.

Thank you sir. I tried to take a photo every time I added something. Hope it wasn't photo overload, I actually have a shit load more that I decided not to add cause it would have taken me several more hours to do.

My buddy and I did all the work except for mounting the tires. It was fun but I think I am going to take a break for a while and save up some more money.

Thanks guys. And yes, my name is Clay and I'm an addict

USMC we are going to have to hit a trail together one of these days. I have been talking to you about the Reid knuckles in a few other threads. Would love to see your rig in person and see how your set up. I am willing to take a road trip down to Tucson if you don't mind being the guide to show me and my buddies some of the trails in your neck of the woods. Sticking to the 2.5-3.5 range stuff so nothing to crazy. Gotta get to work on Monday morning and still have a payment and all

Chopping the flares is on the list. Either that or the RR flatties. Then moving up to 37s.
