    Default "Silvia," 2005 Wrangler Unlimited

    My first build...

    "Silvia," 2005 Unlimited, stock except for a rather nice 2-piece hard top.

    No that's not me in the picture.

    Donor vehicle: "Missy," 2000 TJ, heavily modded as shown in the picture.



    Missy has aftermarket front and rear bumpers, swing out tire carrier, luggage rack, snorkel, winch, light guards, Gen-Right rockers, lights, Atlas II t-case, ARB front and rear lockers, onboard air, 35" tires, about 6" of lift. Silvia doesn't have any of that.

    Missy also has a very bad transmission problem right now, which is why I picked up Silvia. Goal is to take as much stuff off of Missy as possible and put it on Silvia and then sell Missy. I already know that some of the parts won't fit but I think most of it can be migrated over. Missy was a 5-speed and Silvia is auto.

    I've already started moving over some of the pieces, I'll post more as the buildup continues.

    With A LOT of help from my friends on Beltway and here on MJ, I installed the light guards, front and rear bumper, winch, sway bar, fender flares, and luggage rack. Did some interior work as well and slapped some stickers on.




    old-school DCU ruck sack cover fits 31" tires very well...




    I modded the luggage rack to make up the difference in lengths between the TJ and LJ, rack rotates up to allow for removal of the two-piece hard top.



    Going to look to raise it 2-3" and get some 33" tires and some nice wheels.
