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.

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?

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
