    Thanks mixflip! It's called Surf Blue (and being a Kentucky Wildcat fan I love all things BLUE! LOL) but I call her Smurfette, hahaha. And yep...I'm a girl...just not a 'girly girl'.

    Thought about a lift yet? I really like the Teraflex kits. That's what I have on mine. Oh, and when (not if) you do put a lift on, also replace the stock steering dampner. It's junk and won't stand up to the change in geometry and oversized tires (mostly the tires). A good after market steering dampner will preserve your ball joints and head-off death wobble.

    One bit of advice on any build up. Plan it out. Just don't start buying cool looking parts and slapping them on. It never ends well.

    Oh, and by the way, radical mods aren't really necessary unless you get into some sort of competition. My Scrambler went over the Rubicon in '83, just like it looks in the picture, except I had installed and Hi Lift on the front bumper.

    I know some of the "experts" in the off road mags now bad mouth the Hi Lift, but that's only because they are pretty much inexperienced and brain dead. It's a tool, and like any tool you can use it correctly or incorrectly. We were given a brain and opposable thumbs. Use them.
