Hello everyone!
Maybe a few remember me. I had an 05 KJ but it died on me, I had a cracked head and then it went down hill from there. I tried to find another KJ but just couldn't find one I liked for my price but I did find a Jeep at least. Its an 03 TJ Rubicon. I still miss my KJ and think often about trading in but I do love this TJ. I have plans for it but its hard to get the money. Oh well heres pics
When I first got it

Thanks! Yes they are pretty nice right out of the box. Its a very capable rig, but there are a few things that I would like to change.

If any one is interested I did a few things since those pictures were taken.
I added some side steps/rock rails. I love the way they look
Image
Also add some KC lights to the windshield but don't really have a picture when I did it.
But here I took of the water weights and you can see the lights
Image
Then I added a cowbell for kicks

Looks good moose, I'm torn between BDS or OME for my TJ..I had such good luck and loved my BDS springs on my YJ. I will probably end up going with BDS..

I would have went with BDS but my father put money towards it for my Christmas present. Honestly its not good as everyone said, sure it rides nice but not like a Cadillac as stated. Better then stock? Oh yes but worth the price tag? Not really. They one nice thing is it comes with bump stop extensions for the rear, I guess the front are long enough, and a trac bar relocator for the rear plus a x-case drop but I didnt have to use it. I would look at Zone also, there BDS sister company and for the price there really good.

Im still trying to figure out where to go with my build. Just can't seem to figure it out

How much lift? Next thing you need is some Rokmen spring perch relocation brackets for the rear. It never stops!

Do you have any vibration issues? If you do, you will need some adjustable UCA's.

If you have not spent time on the ROF, you should. Lots of good information specifically on Rubicons.

The kit said 2.5" but I got close to 2.75". I have thought about doing perches but I am not a good enough welder to do that.

I haven't had vibs yet luckily, UCA's are something on the list for this summer when I am out of school and working full time.

Ive been on there just not much, I'll check it out more often

No liberty here, I had an 05 but after doing some mods and driving to school it cracked a head and then I just go the Rubi
