Looks like she's doing all of the work. Are those Maxxima tail/reverse lights?

Killer rig, awesome that you and your daughter built it together. My first couple vehicles were built with my dad. You never forget it and the skills last a lifetime.

I have always wondered, when someone saves a Jeep like this, if the old owner will ever see it?

She listened well and learned quick which meant she did a lot of the work! Yes, Maxxima tail lights...

For now we used my old home made rear bumper off the green jeep, used the gen-right license plate light, and have the jeep on the road. Towed our wave runners down to the beach and are working on teaching her how to back-up a short wheel-base trailer...

Very nice man. Jeep looks so sweet. I must admit. I like her jeep better than yours

Jeep is very clean. simple yet sophisticated

The color matched lock rings are what really makes it pop IMO

Good job

I just read through your previous build (all the way) and it brought me here. I just bought an '04 Unlimited with 68k miles and your amazing work has inspired me! I definitely think I will mimic your daughters a bit more than yours, as yours is insane! Anyway, on the last page someone asked about your job and you mentioned trucking though I'm not sure what you do. Don't happen to be looking for any Supply Chain / Logistics graduates do you?
