Sweet zj
Where did you get your fenders? I almost bought your old ones when you were selling them but didnt because lack of jeep funds.

the jeep looks nice, but why build a rig for the dunes with a solid front?

Why are you swapping in junkyard Laredo seats when you had seats that actually matched before?

Because i already had the jeep and loved it, and had already started modifying it so why not. I know A arms work better for what i use it for but hey i cant complain it does great offroad.

Nah the gears were installed by the same guy that did my trans... i helped though..haha..

The rear fenders i will be getting as soon as i cut up the back so they can actually serve a purpose instead of just for looks.
