Rmtomasin build thread- Project Jeep Grand Heep
Got my jeep feb. 2007, it was my first vehicle and i wasn't involved with froadiing yet at all i just happened to get a 4wd jeep.

i worked at a toyota dealership with one of my friends who had a 4runner and lifted it and wheeled

i started doin some stock wheelin and about a year later in dec. 07 i lifted her in my garage

this was sometime in jan. a morning after i had gotten stuck all night up to my doors for about 4 hours and none of my friends could get me out so i had to wait on a chevy with 6" lift and 35" to come yank me. I flooded my tranny and put the heep out of commission for a while, my pocket has still not fully healed a year later

i've done a few mods since then

i put a kevins offroad rad support in

put in a cb radio

i wheeled it all of 08

then same time in dec 08 as in dec 07 i sunk my heep again an now have many problems such as stalling and misfiring and another tranny problems. Hopefully these will be fixed soon so i can continue with my build.

i know the cb sucks i'm fixing that and reconsidering a new antena mount location. What do you guys think i should do with the cb and antena, i'm think about getting a rack so i could mount it up there.

it was a good fun night and a brand new trail we found some road that just turned into creek crossings and plenty of stuff, was some good motivation to get my heep back up and running.

Dude last night was a blast! cant wait til' your heep gets back up and running so we can ride some trails. get your lady back up and runnin teezy! Oh and i got my codes pulled and I had a misfire last night.

got some tune up parts yesterday, i got a new air filter, new oil, new plugs, wires and cap, and some seafoam

do i need anything else that you guys can think of, i've had a misfiring problem so i'm trying to fix that, and should i seafoam first then change everything?

I noticed that on of the TJs had a "Southern Offroad Specialist" sticker on the windshield. My brother bought a black YJ in Birmingham with a southern offroad specialists sticker. Is that a local shop or group or something?

lookin good. how do u like the iro 3.5" springs? iv heard theyr decent but how do they ride?

also do u have any more pics of the way u mounted ur antenna (specifically with the taillight taken off)? that is exactly the same way i want to do mine.

Yes sir. Its our local 4x4 shop around here. I bought my wheels there and they hooked me up with amd amounts of stickers. so i threw it on. my dad hates it, he says it false advertising since they didnt do any of the work. haha
