Hand throttle ($8.55 worth of bike brake and cable!)

Safety:
Full custom cage (Getting full racing seats, 5 point harnesses, more cage, helmets. met with "the guy" and scheduled it for first week of Nov.)

I recently changed this jeep from a mild wheeler on 35's to what it is now. see the build thread Jeep Envy. As the jeep speaks for it self, I will simply tell you where the name came from. Riding around town with my wife I used to look at every jeep, pick out something I liked and tell her I had jeep envy. The jeep envy within built and built within me until one day I started making a list of what I really wanted in a wheeler. At the top of that list I wrote Jeep Envy. So I started buying up axles and tires as I found deals. I bought all of the suspension components and most the brackets off a member here and he was very good at helping me put this all together, this is his brain child and my motivation. I owe the little bit I know about jeeps and wheeling to the collective members of JeepForum, Thank you.

Thank you all for the votes and positive feedback. There are some very nice jeeps on JF and in that August line up.

That size and set up is not for everyone. I can already see how nice it was when I could drive it down the road AND fit on all the trails .

I have earned a new respect for people that build jeeps. From a stock tear down and full rebuild to building a crawler. Many of those projects, like mine, would never happen with out the collective knowledge, opinions, and experience of forum members. 4 years ago I bought this jeep and didn't even know what a leaf spring was .




I will be at Big Dogs (here) in VA next week if anyone wants to hit the trails or grab a beer afterwards.
