Lets get started
(first build thread so give me some slack/tips)
when i first bought her, I didnt even know what I was getting myself into, All I knew was that I wanted a jeep.
99 jeep tj running..but thats it 4" skyjacker shortarm that was falling apart. It had a rebuilt title and was used in big cypress as a hunting rig until it got into my hands.
I always liked the expedition style rigs and I thought itd be pretty cool to wheel and camp in the same rig. I drove it like that throughout highschool,
came up on a hardtop for my softtop trade
,put a bench in the front(hated), radio install & $30 soundbar but for the most part it stayed them same.
