Hey everyone, I Got my jimmy over a year ago for $600 and have put a lot into it so I figured I should start my build.

-So far I have put on new tires, 235 75 r15 wrangler territories.
-New off road lights, IPF 900 series (older ones)
-Painted over the silver on the front and sides and rims.
-Put a 12" kicker sub and a 300 watt kicker amp.
-Replaced muffler with a Glasspack.

And that's pretty much all the things I added to it. ( Not counting all the parts to fix it and get it running).

-I plan on a 2" body lift.
-2.5" RC suspension lift or the 6" if it comes out later this summer and have the cash.
-bigger tires maybe 31 or 33 depending on the lift I get.
-Cb Radio (Already got one just waiting for shipping)
-Fix rust spots and bedline the sides.
-Bush guard
-The posilock thing rex made. ( I have gone through 3 actuators...)
-Another 4x4 rear end or zr2 with G80( G80 broke with previous owner)
-Fix transfercase seals.

That's is all I can think of right now but i'm sure I will think of more.

Anyways this is a pic of when I got it.

Well today my Cb finally came in so I put it on. I got a cobra 29 classic and a 4' firesik antenna.


I have it up on the dash because its kinda big and there was not much room anywhere else for it.



They sent me the wrong type of mount... They gave me a mount with the lug on it witch would not work for the coax cable so I had to go and buy the right one and then I could put the antenna on.


Its wired into my fuse box for now untill I get a longer cable to hook it up to the battery. The Cb works pretty good and I might get a PA speaker to go with it.

I mounted my 29 just above the center counsel under the dash.

The only mod I had to do was cut out a bit if the black trim/kick panel to make clearance for the back of the cb.

I like the location. It's down out of the way and it keeps all of the wires hidden and out of the way.

Yeah that's a good spot, I don't mind the wires being up on the dash so I will probably just leave it there.

Well I won't be adding anything to my truck for a bit now... I took it out for a drive today and when I came back I noticed a crack about 1 inch long on the top of the rad, so its leaking coolant and I have to go fix that now...

Nice nostalgic looking radio there. I got the Uniden Bearcat 880 for my work truck, its colorful and flashy and has digital noise reduction and auto scan channels. Nice unit.

Also, you can pop into a CB shop and the person there can "tune" your radio for better reception. To do this they trim off some legnth on that antenna for better reception. Plus then you can pull into that garage.

The reception is pretty good right now and the antenna I got has a tunable tip, I might end up going to a Cb shop to let them tune it but first I have to get a new radiator.

Is your leak in the plastic end cap of the rad right near the inlet tube?

This is a pic of the crack its about an inch long, its kinda hard to see but its right above the oil line that goes in the radiator on the left side.

If its the plastic end ap you can replace that rather than the whole rad for about $35. I did it on mine about two yrs ago and have never had an issue with it.
