So, Since I have paid the jeep off, I decided to go ahead and start a parts list for the Jeep. I have thrown around the idea of doing comp cuts, or doing a stretch kit so I didn't have to comp cut the rear, to how I see the jeep being built one year to 5 years from now, and how I would want it built for its purposes. First I needed to address the purpose of the Jeep. I have decided that, the Jeep is going to be built for a multitude of purposes. Rock crawling is not the only thing that the jeep's see's. I do a lot of hunting, day trips, city driving, camping, hiking, you name it. So, what I am going to do, with a little bit of modification to the plan, is set it up for that. So I am going to do a tear drop rear cut, Cause I just hate the look of comp cuts( I know there purpose and why they are done, just not my flavor of pork). I am going to go to mid arms, I am not going to do a extended tank though. Had one on my old YJ and just didn't like it. Also, I like building my Rig to Drive to the trail and to bring me home. The purpose well be able to Take it anywhere within the US or Canada, to wheel it, without having to trailer it if I didn't want too. So, also there is not much that I have to add to the jeep now
1. Rokmen Custom cage
2. Spidertrax 9's Front and Rear 3''x3/8'' Or Front and Rear TeraCRD 60's (have yet to decided)
3. Custom Mid arm setup( hopefully rokmen made)
4. 17x9 beadlock aluminum rims(TR,WE)
5. 38.5x12.50x17's- set of AT's and Trail tire ( or a all in one tire)
6. Rokmen Belly skid
7. PSC steering box
8. 4.6L stroker (forged internals, rollar rockers, etc) with a supercharger setup(custom)
9. M416 trailer- made to haul gear, with water/gas reserves.
10. 9k Winch ( Warn TI)
My list is small cause, I already have all the other parts on the jeep that I wanted to have. The list though is expensive. It well add up to what I already have into the jeep. BTW, MPG's is not really a concern to me.
the other reason my list is made this way, is because we have finished the liberty as well. With the liberty it has plenty of interior room, It well be able to follow me anywhere I need to go, and Well it is going to have a M416 or equiv trailer built for it as well. The two vehicles well always be offroad together as well.
Any advice, hints, comments, please give them. I am looking for input on ways to improve in area's or maybe different parts that I could use. Also, rokmen is local to me, I have talked with Dave and Jeff numerous times about what I saw my jeep looking like, so When time is due it well be going to them to be built.
Thanks for reading this long post, that probably has many run on sentences and ya ya.
