First, the name: "L.T" played for the New York Giants. I am a Redskins fan and vividly remember the night he broke Joe Theismann's leg on Monday Night Football. LT was big and black and mean and my Jeep is big and black and looks mean, so there we go. And Darth Vader has already been taken, 3 times in the Charlotte, NC area alone.................

When I bought this Jeep in September of 2011, the build had already begun. The guy that owned the Jeep before never even changed the oil. He had everything installed at a shop in Atlanta, GA. It was the definition of a mall crawler. When I met him to pick it up, we met in the mall parking lot!!

So I bought a Jeep with a good, sound base of modifications and I continue to build from there. I'll continue to update this thread as the more projects are completed.

This it the Jeep the day I bought it. I wasn't joking about the mall!! The guy said "If you have any questions, just call me, we'll be in the mall for a while." I laughed on the inside.

Image

A lot of the stuff I have still needs to be installed or isn't very noticeable, so it looks largely the same today.

Here's the sliders Jeff at Wicked Trail Products built for me. This was the first set for a 4 door JK.

I've had it out to Uwharrie 3 or 4 times and it's done great!

Thanks to Jeff at Wicked Trail Products for installing a new steering stabilizer, Spidertrax wheel spacers, relocating my evap cannister and welding on my lower control arms skids last weekend!! Everything looks great!!

And thanks to Chris and Ryan at Blue Note Fab for fabbing up my light bar spacers!! They are custom, beautiful works of art!!

New Synergy HD Ball Joints are on the way.
Last remaining bits and pieces for new rear axle shafts are on the way.
4 used Bilstein 5100s are on the way.

Still have to add (rear)/swap (front) some lights, install the Optima battery, install the PA speaker and fix/replace the horn.

Last weekend Jeremey helped me install the rear Alloy shafts and 1/2 the Synergy balljoints. Passenger side will go on next weekend. The lower was bad on the driver's side but the upper was okay.
