Well I figured I'd make a build thread to keep updating instead of a bunch of little threads since I'm bored right now.

Here it is on its first time in the mud after I bought it.

Here it is with my buddy's jeep on 31's stock suspension and no flares.

with flares

Finally lifted at NESM




And here's how it sits now.


Motor work is a throttle body and header with PCM tune and custom exhuast.

what brand tb is that and whats the size?
It's a ported and polished factory throttlebody for the 5 cylinder like what supermod sells but it's next to the stock 2.8 throttle body which is probably why it looks so big.

I'm busy with school but I get 3months to get cash and work on the truck :thumbup: although sometimes I spend a little to much on the truck instead of saving it like I probably should.

Thanks for the compliments guys I'll update when I finally get on a trail or get the winch installed instead of staring at it on my apartment floor.

Well I ran into a problem today trying to mount up the winch I can't get it back far enough to line up the holes to bolt it to the bumper because of the black support that runs vertically in the iddle of the grill do you think it's be ok If I cut a notch in it to acomidate for the bar in the winch in the pictures below?

Lookin' Good!!

If you do notch it, still needs a plate or some sort of reinforcement (mabye on the back side?).....that bar is the only thing that supports our already Cheesy Hood/Latch.

Almost There :thumbup:

Thanks for the help Dents
The closer I get the more headaches I get haha I geuss I'm gonna have to notch it tomorrow no idea how I'm going to reinforce it though I don't have a welder or any ability to add a plate to the back I'm also still trying to figure out where to put the solenoid box. Well notched and test fitted it this morning and heres what I got it still seems pretty sturdy not my best work and not sure what I'm gonna do to strengthen it
