Hayden's Jeep History & Future
 
I began by installing an OME HD kit on my 99 WJ.. Then encountered the lovely "Death Wobble". I put up with for quite some time, but after nearly getting rear ended while towing my brother's and my motorcycle on the highway in Omaha during our trip to Colorado, I decided the stock specs were going back. I ran the JKS Track-Bar, HD tie rod, & their disconnects as well. I wheeled it a bit in Colorado, but like I said, didn't wanna take any risks with the DW. http://img.tapatalk.com/a85d8f72-5d0d-5175.jpg

The WJ went back to stock and I decided to purchase a 98 XJ.. Something more suitable for my Colorado wheeling needs. When I first bought it, it was filthy and needed some help.. But overall, it was in not too bad of shape. http://img.tapatalk.com/a85d8f72-5d6b-ee70.jpg

I then turned it into this.

I ran a Rubicon Express 3.5" Superflex with the full rear leaf pack and front disconnects. Herculiner on lower quarters & cladding removed, etc. Kargo Master roof rack with Hi-Lift. IPF H4 conversion, and some sound stuff. This XJ took me everywhere I wanted to go. Absolutely loved this Jeep.. Juss sold it about a month ago, and I miss it.
But it has taken me back to the 99 WJ... For now :) (almost bought a white 07 WK the other day).

So now, I have installed the Gen III projector headlights, Addco rear sway bar, painted a couple things, and installed a CB. I have ordered a bunch of stuff like a 55w 5000k HIDs from DDM, Focal KRX2 component speakers, & two Alpine MRX amps to power my new system. I also purchased another OME HD spring set, but this time with Bilstein 5100s. I was set on running these, with JK Rubi's wheels & tires, but don't want to deal with DW. Plus I'll end up putting lockers, armor, and bumpers on it.. $$$ that I would rather not spend.
Now I'm contemplating finishing the sound system, led interior/exterior, tinted taillights, led third brake light, roof rack delete, repaint the cladding and bumpers, and install some black 20" SRT Reps and drive it comfortable.
This is how it is now.
