Jeep Envy - This jeep earned its named because of my Jeep Envy. Every jeep I see has something, a part, a detail, custom work... something that I would love to have on mine. One day while driving around my wife told me I had "Jeep Envy" so it stuck.

8 years ago I didn't know what a leaf spring was or how to change engine oil. So I told my wife I wanted to learn, I gave her the choice... "Small & Fast or Big & Slow" I was going to build a ricer and race it, or build a jeep.... you can see what she chose here......

Thank you for the votes. Major thank you to our antican for volunteering to do this each week. $100 to Metalcloak is a huge win!

Next plan now is working out my flat skid and then posting up the writeup.
