    Default Build List

    Well with my deployment coming up closer and closer I have done what so many of us do and put all of my wishes and plans on an Excel spreadsheet. Hopefully while I'm deployed I can stay on track and order parts "as needed". It's funny how things add up as we all know but seeing it on paper is a small reality check. I broke it up into 4 columns: Build Parts, Future Build Parts, Parts Ordered, and Parts Owned/ Installed. I'm hoping with the deployment I can order all the high dollar items but we will see. Hopefully the 6 doesn't see this though lol.

    after a deployment of trimming the list it's down to about three grand for parts. The labor is a matter of question. first is a winch (which I can do!), but after that the gears and rear locker...no way I am biting that bullet. not for a vehicle that is more than a farm runner/toy.

    Long term, I want to get rid of the damn d30lp, but I can't even really contemplate that just yet. I think I might buy an old truck and cannibalize the axles if I ever get to the point where I won't be DDing it. Full width would be friggin great. And I want a full roll cage. I have a kid now, and that changed my perspective on such things quick!

    Good Luck on your deployment, Stay safe. I’m winding mine down here pretty soon. I've invested about 8k into mine. It was pretty easy, but I also don’t have a wife or kids though. I just had everything ship to my home where my Jeep is at, ( I cant have my YJ in Germany ) and my dad just piled everything I’m my room. It was pretty sweet coming to thousands of dollars in parts!!!! It was like my own Christmas in June during R&R. I’m doing again when I get back for leave. I tried to organize it into priority, but eventually everything made into the "NEED" column.

    I'm working on the list as well for stuff to buy on my deployment that's coming up soon too. Plan on swapping out those axles at all? Because I would be quite willing to grap that 8.8 off of you for my ZJ! Stay safe.

    3/4 ton axles would be nice but are not going to happen for quite a while. I just swapped them in like a year and a half ago. Also I really don't see me going past 35's. Maybe 37's one day but probably not. Here is the short list:
    Rear Long Arms
    Belly Skid
    Hack-N-Tap SYE
    Shocks
    Headlights
    Front Bumper
    Rear Bumper
    Limit Straps

    Cost w/o shipping:
    $3,886.00
