- lol, ROCKCRAWLING!!!

and here it is now

(like my russian style bodywork?)

i dont have any more pics right now, havent been able to do any wheeling.

the best part is, i owed $4700 on it! it blue booked at $4700, they said there was $8000 in damage (gotta love full coverage) i bent the fender back in with a crowbar, smacked it with a hammer a little bit. JB welded the plastic fascia support, hit the core support with the hammer a bit, etc. it turned out nice. bought a hood for $100, tailights for $75 and i was good to go. put 50,000 miles on it since the rollover, not one major problem.

im a lucky SOB...

Only Pic I have on Photobucket from before I did any mods. Stock 5.9 less the paint Job the previous owner did.

Stock


The day I put my first 4" Lift and first Mod on the Jeep.
Axl

As it sit today..5.5" The back had all my camping gear for 4 with plus a full cooler. The only stock drive train components left are the rear drive-shaft and the 5.9 Motor. every thing else has been changed including axles, transfer case,tranmission and complete suspension, from gears and Locker's to bumper. The winch is on its way from RC.



Today with no gear in the back.


I think I am going to 35s with the new fender flairs. I had black Cragar 8's on with 33 Procomp X Terrains on, but I cut a hole in the side wall wheeling 2 weeks ago so I put on my spare set of aluminum rims with 33 super swampers last weekend for wheeling. I don't like the aluminum rims. the black is going back on with the 35's



Lot of work done in 3 years.
