Just about ever since i upgraded my jeep got bigger tires and all, i thought i got good brakes that was incorrect on my part so i when ahead and got the EBC braking system from 4WD green stuff brakes with slotted rotors my jeeps bad braking days are over world of a difference!!
Rugged ridge yj tie rod kit and spicer ball joint replaced on my 87 yj thanks to 4wd
Not bad for a present from my wife ( in stock form ) I had to pay for all the upgrades with patients and recycled metal. It was a good lesson in what is important and finesse when out playing as to not break anything. Only time will tell how big this project will be. I love every minute of the process. It is so much fun to add that next piece and fix the latest problems from the last adventure.
I have slowly built my 1994 Jeep Cherokee SE. It has a set of 33×12.50R15 Firestone Destination MT on Pro Comp Series 98 Flat Black 15×8. To get the room needed for the tires I installed a Rough Country 4.5 inch X-Series plus a set of 2inch longer leaf shackles out back, and did some minor fender trimming front and rear. I am still running the Stock 4.0L, AW4, and NP231J, the pumpkins are the stock Dana 30 and Chrysler 8.25 loaded w/4.10 Motive Gear Ring and Pinion and a Power Trax Lock Right out back.
I have also hung a few parts on like a Logans Metal Front Winch Bumper w/XRC 8000lbs winch w/synthetic line, out back there is a JCR rear bumper for cut and folded rear qtrs, aluminum roof rack w/a High-lift, Rusty’s Offroad front and rear diff guards. A pair of Bushwhacker flat flares out front and JC Whitney rubber flare extensions. A triple core all aluminum radiator with two high flow (1800 cfm) electric fans keeps the engine cool. The best mod so far has been relocating the alternator to the top of the motor where the AC was.
In time I would like to add a selectable front and rear lockers.
Someday to up grade to a set of Rubicon Dana 44s and a 4 link rear.
My jeep has always taken me here and there and back again, a little dirtier and more scratched up then I started.

Get flagged, stopped, waved at, thumbs up and every possible good sign and comment one could imagine. Never received anything bad said about my “toy”. Installed Warn Powerplant winch 9.5. Unhappy with Warn customer service.
I have an ’03 Jeep Wrangler. We enjoy wheeling in places that require a lot to flexing. After much pounding and studying on what type of fenders I wanted I decided to go with the Metal Cloak Arches in the front and the full corners in the rear all with the 4 inch flares. Tucked nicely in between are Metal Cloak rocker guards with the rail.
Here is my first jeep cherokee i have been redoing the whole thing and its interior is almost done and outside is coming along it has a warn bumpers and after market raditor and 7 and half in lift on 33 inch tires i cant wait to get it done the way i like.
Had an ARB Locker installed in my rear axle and a Auburn Ected limited slip/locker up front to help get me through the desert rocks and over obstacles on trail rides. For the steering and suspension I have a Rock Krawler 4″ triangulated suspension, with the Rock Krawler heavy duty steering system, rolling on 35″ BFG KM2′s. I also have Best Top rear tire carrier with an olympic rear bumper. Up front i have a Four Real front bumper/stinger with a winch and to protect my sides i have Four Real tube sliders. Interier i have an Alpine blue tooth deck and 4 alpine speakers in factory locations and in the center console there is a SSV Works sub incloser with a Rockford fosgate 10″ sub powered by and Alpine Amp. I also have a B&M short throw shifter to help get thought the gears. I have attache some pictures of my jeep playing in the desert rocks.
I installed first power stop drilled and slotted rotors all around, I then have added ruggged ridge front bumper with 8000lb Smittybuilt xrc winch, body armor rear bumper w/ tire carrier, Banks intake and exhaust.
We ordered our ’99 Wrangler from the factory and lots of extras. The Bilstein shocks and Goodyears have smoothed a many of rutted trail over the years.
This is my bicentennial beauty, that is always under construction to make her just a little bit off road worthy one piece at a time. When I first traded for her, there was a pucker factor of holes in the vinyl drivers seat at road speeds of 40 mph as the steering single stabilizer had been installed incorrectly. So I like overkill when it comes to my Burro so picked up some double stabilizers and Bam! 50-55 no problem. My wife and I enjoy hooking up the trailer with our 10′x10′ canvas tent and hitting the mining roads and goat trails of the high desert with our 2 feisty Chihuahuas Spike and Domino…..they love the adventure as much as we do! Keep the Greasy side down brothers and sisters!
