When I bought it:

pretty much stock, except for a paint job and some stainless accessories.



The reason it's named the Lucky Charm, When I bought it there was this clover on the side. I thought it was ugly and wanted to take it off, but it was clear coated over the emblem. Well, "if you can't beat them join them" and I ever so creatively came up with "The Lucky Charm"








Grant steering wheel




After the 4" Superlift Suspension lift. My first time having the top off.


Hurst short throw shifter for mt T5 transmission:




The Rough Country shocks that came with my Superlift kit?? Along with the extended sway bar links.


Dana 30, new power steering gear box, M.O.R.E shackle reversal


Rear shackle of the SRS


AMC 20
