I shall call her Bruiser!!!!

Well this build thread may be a little pre-mature because i havnt done much yet. I have horrible memory so that is why im starting it now. Hope you enjoy and can look past my horrible gramer and spelling.

This first picture is a few days after i brought her home. Had to do a little poser shot. At that point all i had done was paint the fender flares.

The next one is not so poser. First time going mudding in her. I am ashamed to say that it took me 15 min to figure out why i couldnt get out of the hole. I had the winch pulled out and almost wrapped around the tree when it hit me. I didnt even put it in 4x4. Poped her in 4Lo and out she crawled no problems.

The third is when i installed my 15" Kicker comp i built a plexy box around it to keep it away from the elements a little better then just the carpet.

#4 is another poser pic. Actually came at it at the wrong angle at first and almost rolled her.

5th is a shot of the gas tank somehow got a huge hole in it threw some JB weld in it for now. Already have the replacement tank so when i get back from Afghan i am promptly installing it.

A few more steps.....

Alright this next picture is the installed Bestop Trektop NX. I was not their for the install but my wife did it alone so couldnt have been to difficult. I think it looks much better now the old one was ripped pretty bad.

The last few pics are my latest upgrades some BFG KM'2 on Fuel Revolver. Only pain that i ran into is the wife took it to sears to have them mounted and they said i needed splined lugs before they would install. but o well they are on now and you can see why i think i will call her Bruiser i'm loving the black and blue.

Lots more stuff on the way to include a RE 3.5 SF lift, SYE, CV, and a few KC's. but cant do anything with them untill i get home . So untill then. thanks for checking out the build and please let me know what you think im in the Corps so i have developeted pretty thick skin.

Jeep looks good......

those pictures - are those on the tank trails on Lejeune? Be careful out there, if the MP's catch you out there they will confiscate your jeep. Ask me how I know...
