nice jeep, nice garage, nice house!!!! enjoy !
Did you just watch some YouTube videos to figure out how to install it or prior experience required?
Did you have to make some major investments in tools?
I don’t have much mechanical experience so I am also wondering what is the probability that I could get crushed performing the upgrade.

Built, not bought, kudos on doing it yourself!
What are your plans for it? Casual wheeling, overland camper, technical offroad, etc....
lol, I showed my wife the first picture about "this guy working on his Jeep"... she looked for a moment, then her eyes widened and she said "Look at that floor!!"
I miss my Sahara. Sold it when gas went over $4/gallon.
Looking good! Northridge is a great group of guys to buy from too. Next weekend we need a pic out getting used!
Nice color on that jeep. Nice wheels, too.
Redneck Ron - Displaced hillbilly???? Fake news. That is not the garage of a hillbilly or a redneck.
Is it just another Asphalt Commando Vehicle that never see's off road dirt?
When I bought the first Jeep years ago I bought a Haynes manual, a few hand tools, and figured it out. Learned from other Jeep friends as well. Join a local Jeep club and go to some “wrenching parties”. Jeep peeps are generally very friendly and helpful.
Honestly, the Jeep will be the wife’s daily driver and a casual wheeler. Moab, UT, scenic Colorado trails, AZ, etc. We used to have a beast of a TJ that we towed around and did a lot of difficult rock crawling, but we have kinda lost interest in that type of wheeling.
Gratuitous pics of the TJ. Both pics, the wife is driving.
All of our Jeeps are used off road. I have never understood why people buy Jeeps and never take them off road. Much better choices for a daily driver.
I hear ya. I drive 77 miles round trip to work each day, so I traded my 2 door on 37’s back In February for a 4cyl Mazda. Much better gas mileage.
Lol at all the garage floor love. Wife thought I was nuts for choosing blue. Anyway, got the back finished, set the tire pressure, straightened the steering wheel, and used a tuner to adjust for the bigger tires. Test drive was a success, smooth ride at 70mph, let go of the steering wheel and no wandering. Wife was very happy with the results.
Tomorrow I fill add stronger tailgate hinges and a heavy duty tire carrier to handle the weight of that spare.
That is a beautiful car. Your wife is a lucky woman to have such a talented husband.
That's a very nice build! You chose wisely on the Teraflex lift. I've been wrestling with what to do with my '16 JKUR Hard Rock. It's mostly stock at this point, just upgraded shocks, winch, lights and bigger brakes. Living in the Tidewater area of VA, just haven't had the need for a lift/tires. That will change when I retire and move back to UT in a couple of years. That said, I will probably get my younger brother to sell me his current Jeep he just built. He's obsessed with 'wheeling in Southern UT and has built half a dozen or so. I think he enjoys building them as much as wheeling and I know he'll give me a good deal. He works at Teraflex, so...
Can’t wait to see what oh do with yours. And that is a sweet Jeep your brother put together! 40’s?
The more I think about it, I'll likely pass mine off to my wife the way it is and buy my brother's Jeep. There's no way I could build one like this at his cost. He gets special employee discounts, access to the shop and free labor from co-workers who are equally obsessed with building up Jeeps. Yep, those are 40's
That floor is way to clean for me
Nice job, have fun off roading!
