New guy from Hampstead NH

Post  ski603 on 4/18/2015, 4:20 pm

Hi guys, I'm from Hampstead NH. I have a 2003 TJ that I've been working on, with more to come soon. So far I've done a 1.25" body lift, MML, and cable T-case shifter in prep for my Savvy UA install. I have a metal cloak bumper with a warn zeon 10-s to extract me when I get in over my head. I have Savvy sliders and there gas tank skid for some added protection. I'm on 31x10.5x15 BFG KM2's for know, until I get my lift in this summer.
I'm a merchant marine so I order stuff while I'm out at sea, so I can wrench and wheel when I'm shoreside.
I'm looking forward to meeting up with you guys for some Trail riding.

Welcome aboard (no pun intended). Sounds like a solid plan. That savvy armor will lay for itself in trail capability.

Yeah sorry, it's a spam bot deterrent Smile We're having our BBQ on Sunday if you're available to attend!

I would attend, but I'm in Southampton UK right now on my ship. I should be back in late June / early July, so hopefully you guys have some runs scheduled around that time.

Copy that. Yep we'll be running club events monthly (sometimes bimonthly) through November!

Welcome! Sounds like you've got the right idea on how to start! Too many guys lift right off the bat and then throw their rig in more than they should. Armor and a winch first and then lifting after that means you get into the hairier stuff after you've already learned all the tricks. You'll be way better off for it!

Can't wait to see pictures!

Here's my progress so far. I'm planning a major evolution in my build when I get back from sea. It's been a lot of fun wheeling it like this and figuring out what I need to do.

The Antirock has been awesome. When I bought the jeep last year the front sway bar links were shot, so that was my excuse to put it in.
The clear coat is peeling on the hood, it came like that to me but I used it to negotiate my price down. I haven't decided how I'm going to handle it yet, I've been eyeballing the poison spyder hood louver, but I might just repaint it.
