    This one is an 01 with an 06 engine. It's a project vehicle for my son who turns 16 in 2 years.

    yeah. he's a good kid even though he doesn't like surfing.

    This is phase 2. Phase 3 is going to be a winch and Corbeau racing seats.

    Phase 1 was a sweet Alpine sound system and a Banks stainless catback.

    I had an Alpine system except the head was Pioneer Premier. That's some gift!

    ground clearance if you offroad which we do quite a bit. I really wanted a highline kit that lets you run 35 inch tires with no lift but they are big bucks. My next Jeep will have that.

    NICE ! Body lift or Susp lift ? Sometimes susp lifts screw up drive shaft angles causing U-Joint failure always at the wrong time. I love wranglers - the wheel base is real short though and can wear you out on a long trip. I'm lookin for a 4dr (longer wheel base) when I get some money together. Awesome Ride !!!!!!!

    Suspension lift. Jeeps are really touchy with lifts and most like will cause drive train vibes so you either need to do a motor mount lift of a transfer case drop. I did the TC drop since I'm getting a tummy tuck and will need a slip yoke eliminator for that. The SYE is the best way to go to align everything so once in place, that will fix everything.

    The only thing I don't like about the 4dr JKs is the lack of the 4.0 engine.
