After a few years away from the TJ world it feels good to be back. I had a 2000 TJ for a few years and I LOVED it. For some silly reason i sold it for a JK in 2021 and then proceeded to wander from vehicle to vehicle for years while keeping an eye on LJs. A few years ago i ordered/built a diesel JL and I loved it but with the economy the way it is and a new baby on the way I needed to cut expenses. Searched and searched all over until i happened to score this FL owned, 3 owner, 47k original mile LJ for just a hair over 13k. (Yes i know it has a lot of thing wrong with it) Its on its way to me in south Texas now and i plan on correcting a few wrongs right away. I'll continue to log the build as it progresses.

Things coming off ASAP- 2 inch body lift (will likely go to 1 or 1.25 inch), bumpers, light bar, fenders and wheels/tires.

Making some progress. Installed front 3 inch/rear 2 inch BDS springs, JKS track bar/disconnects, rancho shocks and rock krawler lower control arms. Ditched the 3 inch body lift and the 15x10 wheels in favor of some 15x8 and new 33s. Going in for a 5.13 regear this week.
