so a few months back i picked up this 99 tj on the cheap to start a new build. Im still undecided about a few things but am slowly starting to make headway on the few things i know for sure....goal is to keep it as low as possible.

what i have figured out thus far is:

Poison spyder cage
full aluminum genright highline kit
mastercraft seats
clayton longarm


this is what i started with:
99 tj 4.0L auto. its a 1 owner rig that was driven back and forth from vegas to olympia 6 or so times a year for the last few yrs. So needless to say it has ALOT of miles on it, but it had a fresh trans and transfercase rebuild and for 3k i figured i couldnt go wrong.
Image

then stripped the interior and factory cage
Image

test fit the new poison spyder cage and mastercraft seats
Image

everything painted up and reinstalled
Image

Image

now the last few nights i have been lightening this thing up. taking off fenders, bumpers, and all the original factory plastic crap off

Its prewelded. It's one of the first production runs of these cages so its missing a few things that they have since corrected but overall very happy with it. Especially since I only paid half price for it!

Thanks man...im trying!

Got a little more done tonight.

Built a new battery tray (even though I forgot to take pics)
Got hood trimmed and fitted
Finished fitment of inner fenders and bolted up for the last time

Need to figure out what I'm gonna do for hood latches...any ideas? Hood pins? Factory latches?

Image

Image

Really liking the look of these high fenders..amazing how much room it creates!!

I ran some basic AutoZone hood pins on my TJ with highline fenders.

On my YJ now I'm using the Daystar hood pins and they're a way better product. I really like the rubber grommet that they use where the pins come through the hood.

To me the factory latches look out of place on high lines. Companies like Drake and Rugged ridge offer aftermarket options that are more "technical" looking. For the price though, I'm probably just going to do hood pins.

You could do these hood pins. I know a few people have used them on jeeps..

I agree but I didn't like the little indents left from the factory latches in the hood...If I had a blingin' fiberglass hood like Myke i would have gone hood pins
