Mark's Highschool Build (Slow)

So... thought it was finally time to do a build.

This is how it all started out. My parents bought this jeep from my neighbor still stock everything, tires, wheels. 125,000.


Then came a new bumper, with fog lights on it. That bumper got smashed, so i got another bumper. i cut out fog lights in it... and it got smashed as well. So i was fed up with those cheap stock bumpers, i built a steel front bumper.

The first time i went offroading, i got hung up on my rear diff... and had to get pulled out. Then winter came, i got some chains, and went to town pulling people out of snowbanks
