well since our suburban's tranny is gone and its HUGE! (long)


my dad has decided to get a smaller car


not a bronco...but its still coool


an 06' jeep wrangler unlimited (white)





yeah i know its a jeep but he's letting me "pimp it out"


so heres what im doing to it

1. 3'' body lift w/ rancho shocks
2. 31'' tires (undecided)
3. either 15'' procomp rims or my old 15'' eagle alloy rims (new rims for me!)
2. tube front bumper
3. 3 6'' off road lights for the bumper
4. side rails
5. rear tube bumper
6. rock doors
7. side mirror relocaters
8. neoprene seat covers
9. K&N cold air intake



so whataya think about that??

the best thign is, is that my dad isnt relaly so happy about me having a 4x4 and going offroading...so i dont get to go very much


but he said if we get the jeep he wants to start going with me....so that will be awesome...and i'll get to pull him out (hehe)

Don't go with a body lift, get a budget boost for the suspension. You can run 31's w/no lift on that anyway. Get some pics. :thumbup

Your dad's gonna wheel an 06 Jeep? Man, you guys must b rollin in cash....if i give you my Paypal can I get a few bucks?:smokin:

Why does everyone think people that wheel newer rigs are rolling cash? You don't have to destroy your rig to qualify it as wheeling. If you're gonna wheel a newer vehicle, a Jeep is the one get.

That is absolutely correct. Do NOT run the 3" body lift. You will wind up taking it back off, anyway.

There are several sources for budget boost lifts. And yes, the 31" tires will fit with no lift, but you will get some rubbing. I would recommend, however, if you're gonna spend that coin, anyway, spend a little extra and get a Rubicon. You absolutely will not regret it, and it comes with 31" MT/R's, lockers, gears, 4:1 low range, etc.

Add a cheap 4" lift and 33" tires and it's a nice solid wheeler right out of the box with no other mods.

Correct me if im wrong, but isnt that like a grand total of like 40k in jeep and jeep parts?
Naw. These days you can pick up an Unlimited for about $24K, and a Rubicon Unlimited for about $27K. They're changing the Wrangler...all new for '07, and so they are going to be wanting to get rid of all the existing inventory. You'll see great prices by mid-summer.

And the stuff he described above was only about $2K - $2.5K, even with the tires and wheels.

:stupid
If I had to get a jeep off the lot and wheel it, that's exactly what I'd do. Rubi's are plenty capable.

I think its a good vehicle, not a turd as some bitch HATERS may think... I would however skip the BODY lift and get a SUSPENSION lift, you will be much happier with that!

Good luck!

BTW...

Go to http://jeepforum.com for some anti-hate. :thumbup

my dad doesnt like the rubicon...his choice on the car...


...and i know its not a bronco...but if it gets him out there wheeling with me, that'll be pretty cool


i was going with the body lift juct b/c they are cheap...but my dad might want to go wiht a suspension lift...


im also getting a bumper sticker that says "official jeep recovery vehicle"
...and i'd be the one getting the winch...not him
