Over 3 years ago getting the 6” Teraflex Long arm kit and fenders installed. Wow was that powder coat shiny.




Old wheels and tires on:


Almost decided to cap off the rear bumper, but a spare was needed:

That is one awesome jeep. I noticed you are running the TeraFlex 9550 shocks. I recently upgraded to the same TeraFlex suspension, Ben from Tera talked me into the Elka shocks. I have to say, that is one impressive shock. I have run the Tera 9550 shocks, and the Elka's are sweet. Just a fellow JK lover, passing on a good piece of equipment. :)

Thanks for the advice. However next time I upgrade, it will be to coilovers. One thing at a time though.

Two questions:
1. Have you done something to the engine that I missed or running stock?
2. What job do you have at 23 to pay for this monster, it's incredible!

To justify my comp cut.:thefinger: Honestly though, several reasons for it. My rear geometry is slightly skewed and my springs are rubbing my trackbar quite a bit. Also, Im sick of my them bowing in so Im going to correct it all at once; this will help. I should have done this in the begginning after my longarm install. Also, I still want to be able to stuff my tires w/o cutting any more of my pinch seam off.

Stock engine all the way. You ever see a lifted minivan? Well, Im basing my build off a 2003 chrysler town and country crawler.:D

Legal drug dealer... Literally. Im interning at a pharmacy right now, while my wife brings in the bacon. And hey this isn’t an all at once ordeal; I’ve been building up this jeep for over 3 years in phases and parts here or there. I finally just got around to posting about it. Oh and I get all of JPTwinz parts when hes done getting them for free. LMAO
