Today I finally did something about my frame envy. Last month we took in a 2004 Patriot Blue LJ in on trade, I have been bugging our used car manager to sell it to me for cost ever since.

So here it is
2004 Wrangler Unlimited with 22,600 miles. It was a California car that a .com guy had, he move up here and traded it in. Time to part out the ZJ and :spend :spend :spend on the LJ

Initial plans will be lift and 33's (Since I already have them), Flat fenders & Sliders, then rear ARB, then save up for a front 44 and cage upgrade.

Just found the original window sticker in the back, MSRP was $26,000....Glad I paid no where near that.

Looks like it has
Rear D44 w/ trac lok
231 transfer case
Tow hooks
Four Wheel Discs
Ravine Wheels
Auto-Dim Mirror & compass
Anti-Theft
Stereo upgrade with sub
leather steering wheel
Steps

Our used car department just flips them so the "white wall" faces in. Way cheaper than new tires.

Ditto.

All the things I love about my XJ (passenger room, storage room, wheelbase), plus all the adventages of a TJ (suspension, removable top, better tire clearance with less lift).

Nice score!

I test fit both of my new defender XC front fenders, this is sitting on 33" MTRs with no lift yet. The plan is to trim the hood this weekend and then break it all down so I can have them painted at work on Monday.

Front Fenders have been installed, added some rugged ridge quick release mirrors. PS sent the wrong inner fenders so that should be corrected on Monday. I'm going to try to get the spacers, CB and the air compressor installed this weekend.

Fabbed up a bracket for my ARB compressor to mount it next to the brake booster.

Got a bunch of stuff done, the inner fenders arrived so I installed those and started mounting up stuff under the hood, I installed my Hella horns, relocated the washer bottle, mounted the PDC and setup a "Hot Air" intake. I also installed the ACOS and leveled everything out so I netted about 2" of lift.
