Jeffro's ride ...

I just thought I'd get myself a thread to share photos of my Jeep, and the things I do to it, and with it....so here it is.

This was taken soon after I purchased my 1995 Wrangler. It came with a lot of goodies, and only 65,000 miles. It had a 2 1/2" Rancho lift when I got it.



I have made a few changes since then, with the most recent being my RE 4" lift.



I hope to get some wheeling photos sometime soon. I'm planning on going to the Badlands on September 29th....if all goes well.

If you haven't seen my lift thread, here's a before and after. It bounces a little more now, but all in all I like it.





I actually gained 3 1/2" of lift, going from the Rancho to the Rubicon Express.

Just a street light (and a 30 second exposure), at two very different times of the year.

Stainless also...

Mine came with a lot of stainless on it and I'm getting rid of all of it also. A little here and a little there.

Luckily when I bought mine, I got the original rims, and all the parts that had been replaced with "bling", so maybe it's time? The bumper will be the first to go!

Thanks for the offer, I found the original in the garage...forgot I even had it. I'll be doing the switch soon. That erector set bumper just drives me nuts!

Thank you. So far I couldn't be happier with the lift. From what I hear, I'm glad it came with the RE shocks, and not the ****** ( ) shocks...

I like the red. Looks just like mine. Your only a few miles away, I am up in Rockford. I would join you for the Badlands next weekend but I am putting mine back together from going SOA and it won't quite be done. Have a good time!

Today when I got home from work I decided that ugly front bumper of mine had to go! Granted I only replaced it with the stock bumper, but I like it better. No erector set anymore!





I'm not going to take all the chrome off, but I did take off the hood vent, and replace it with the original vent, including the screen to keep debris out. I also took the chrome rails off the top of the half doors. Put the original black ones back on....they were like new, as was the bumper.

Here's another view of my Jeep...you can see my awesome rear seats in this one..



Here's a rear view...just for kicks.....



One last one....the interior....



I'm still thinking of taking the chrome door hinges off, and returning them to stock as well.
