    Mini Tank build

    Picked up this 04 Rubicon late April in London.
    Great shape, krown rust treated since new, just over 200K and came with a set of matching half doors with soft uppers.

    Installed my 1" body lift, 1" motor mount lift, swaybar disconnects, and BFG KO 255/85r16 tires (33.4") this past weekend. Still have to install a Warn diff cover and Warn steering box guard this week.

    Hope to get it into Staang's soon for the belly up skid and a front bumper set up for a rebuilt Warn 8274.

    Not for a few years. It's the wife's DD during the week for awhile.

    Going to concentrate on beefing everything first before going bigger.

    I get confused once numbers get bigger than I can count on my appendages. I'm only good up to 21!
    one quarter turn before something breaks is a good torque spec.
