Default MozMan68's "Baddest Daily Driven 4-Banger TJ Ever"

Well, I've had my 2000 TJ for 14 months now, so I figured it was time to post up since alot has gone on since Jan-2006 when I first brought it home....

Okay....a trip down memory lane to get you all caught up (especially since nothing may be done to it in many months.... :fitz:)


Here she is the day I picked her up in VA...mid January 2006...62,000 miles, zero rust, 2000 TJ (must have been leased)....stock as they come.




800 miles later and I have it at home....first things on the list, add Tuffy center console, Alpine stereo and new speakers.




Got that done, so...the next day is MLK Birthday...take the day off and in honor of MLK I get new wheels, 31" tires and tinting done...



I also took off the front bumper ends right after I took the picture.


CB radio and alot of mud added in Spring 2006...




Summer 2006...looking good...safari top on...club stickers on...but something just doesn't feel right....




That's better....3" 4WD lift added in July 2006...(damn, those 31's look small)




New KOZ rear bumper added at the end of Summer 2006 (you can also see my LiteDOT tail lights that I had put on in July 2006):




Matching KOZ front bumper and the brand new Warn PowerPlant winch added in December 2006




Front LED's added in anticipation of flat fendering the Jeep (just painted over the standard front signals for now)




New AR 17x9 Chamber teflon wheels with 35x12.5 TRXUS MT's and HP D60 axles are in progress....but short on funds right now so I can't install...maybe...















that's where I stand as of March 6, 2007...not too bad for almost 14 months of ownership...

Make sure the pictures look REAL good so I can be forced to give you a credit card number to finish the other stuff!

HP D60 in the rear? Suppose it'll be fine if the 35s are as big as you're going or you don't have a heavy right foot... Just IMHO though
