CRWL:TH!S-JK Buggy by Carolina Truggies





Well since we're nearing the completion of this build, I figured I would share with the rest of the Jeep community ENJOY

but first a little history...

August 4th 2007 my wife and I were struck on the my left side when stopped making a turn on my motorcycle....my wife broke her arm and leg but happy to report she made a full recovery....I took the brunt of the 47mph hit on my left side causing the amputation of my left leg above the knee along with some minor cuts and road rash....WE ARE VERY LUCKY TO BE ALIVE....I now get around pretty good on a prosthetic and me and my wife live life to it's fullest everyday here in NC....naturally I did come into some money from the accident, although it will never replace my leg, I can still have some fun with it!....I've now jokingly come to call my Jeep my extreme wheelchair lol....it will certainly get me where I can't walk!

....NO NEED FOR ANY SYMPATHY, I AM JUST SHARING THIS FOR OTHERS TO NOT CONSIDER ME JUST ANOTHER YUPPY WITH TOO MUCH MONEY TO SPEND!.......NOW enough of this downer ****, and check out what happens when you give a true JEEPER MONEY

this is pretty much how it sits today, just got the limiting straps in and harnesses, now we're waiting on the front drive shaft and fuel cell components, along with having the hydraulic lines and brake lines run so we can move forward...appreciate all the comments so far ...it's been a LONG road but we're almost there, I'll keep the updates coming as I get 'em
