Hello everyone, my name is Ben
I just bought a 99 Tj about a month ago with plans of building a pretty serious street legal wheeler. This is my first build so it should be interesting but I'd love to get to know the local community better. I'm from Stratford and go to school at Central Connecticut State University.

Ill post some pics of what I have so far. Started life as a bone stock tj with a 2.5L and an AX5. Got the drivetrain pulled and the body is coming off this weekend so I can clean up a few small rust areas. I want this to last me many years so I'm trying to do everything right the first time. As for my plans... well that's were I need some ideas. I have many, many ideas my self but I'm not sure how logical they are for wheeling in CT. My initial plans are full width 1 tons on H1 wheels, backed by a small block chevy and 4L60E mated to a flipped dana 300/231 doubler. I'm probably crazy so if someone can talk some sense into me, please do...

Welcome! I just graduated from CCSU with a degree in MIS in 2016.
Definitely start a build thread and keep us posted. Sounds like some great ideas. See you around.
