00 WJ build almost complete

Well hello everyone over the past few months I have torn apart my down pretty good to replace a lot of suspension parts, mods, upgrades, and stock parts, some for performance others for cosmetics. Let me know what you guys think. I have had really fun with working and fixing little stuff on my jeep. There is still a few things that I need to tidy up before I can drive it but I can tell you I am so ready to fire this baby up and take it for a long road trip. I also have to give it a real good cleaning as well as a cool area to take some completely finished photos. Until I do some more stuff this coming spring. But for now it is just fine for a few weeks. I haven't driven my jeep since since December! I will best try to answer any question for anyone as well. I will also try to best describe of what all I did as well in follow up threads. There are a few items that will be available for sale if anyone is interested. If there is enough people are interested in having them. Other than that thanks for the support and enjoy some build pics.

Re: 00 WJ build almost complete

I like the look but I personally think the "smoked" headlights look the best! Here's how mine look; le jeep

you should plasti dip the plastic grille behind the actual grille to match it, and maybe a CF wrapped Jeep emblem back on the hood?!

That would mean you would have to remove all the badges that are stuck on there lol

Back on-topic: Very nice!
