my 1994 wrangler, V8, 700R4, 4.88's, HP D44, D60, H1's, SOA, OBA

All these first pics were lost as they were posted on the UBB board, I am doing my best to find and replace them.

The beginnings..... this pic is 5/6 months after I picked it up from the original owner This pic was taken in Mar/Apr 2000. I had just got it back from being rear-ended and pushed into a guardrail head on (accient was only a month after I got it). Stock except for my fog lamps



After some mods,



First JF trail run of the Michigan people YEARS ago when the board was first getting going.


TJ wheels, Steel Horse Hard top, push bar and fog lights still the only mods other then a stereo.


The V8 swap when the 4 cyl started running 0 psi OP



The first install, we were trying to figure out transmission wiring, hence the rats nest. This was cleaned up later.



The new suspension and meats for the first time....


Want your tube bumper gone... use it as a pull point, I knew it was going to come off and my buddy did too as pulling trailers totally killed it, I was stupid and dumb we took the chance and it came off...

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...1/IMG_0556.jpg

New bumper went on to replace it... There is NO WAY this will come off.



I linked the one image as it was one I wanted in, but not important enough to get it in another post through editing.

I thought Green was the M&M that was supposed to effect your $ex drive.

well... in a weird way a green jeep can do that too... it can get you to a secluded spot on a twilight night with your girl, far from anyplace, where you can stargaze or whatever and it stays camoflaged

Never Updated this and all the old pics are gone now soooo here we go...



Yes I know about the leak

SEE NEWEST POSTS FOR PICTURES THAT REPRESENT THESE STATS.

CB handle: Jeepfreak


Location: Owosso, Mi

Interior mods: Pioneer head unit, Pioneer Dash speakers, Kenwood 6x9 in jeep speaker pods (fried from water holes at the dunes) Radio Shack CB and firestick, Steel Horse console, “custom” dash cupholders and Yosemite Sam floor mats, 55 watt halogen dome lamp, Autometer Guages, mud splatter dash. GMC 3500 Topkick seats (semi style seats)


Exterior mods: KC Daylighter window mounted lights, Custom Rear bumper built by Nick_sg and I, Front bumper built by me with winch mount and TX2 12,000lb 2 speed winch, Foglamps, scratches and dents, aftermarket Hard top for winter, Bikini/tonneu for summer (soft top was standard) rock rails with side step, and next year possible tire carrier. Functional Ram air scoops

Recovery and safety equipment: 12,000lb winch, Hi-lift jack, Strap, Tree saver, and a fire extinguisher, assortment of tools, parts and a rag

Skid plating: Gas skid, Tranny skid modified stock.

Other mods: Various little things such as seat covers, in addition to the normal back seat An extra separate trail seat for the rear passengers, also used around the campfire

Best modification: 355 Chevy, tranny by Killer "b",

Worst modification: Rear Tube bumper, bent too easy, the hitch flexes under load, feels like it would come off-- oh wait it did

Primary trails or events: Mounds, Big Rapids, and Silver lake, have done some Whitehall and would like to hit Grayling and Mio (nothing around my house other then my field), did west branch and St. Helen as well

Club/Organization affiliations: GLFWDA www.glfwda.org -- Regional association dedicated to saving our trails, www.treadlightly.org, United Four Wheel Drive Association www.UFWDA.org and various web-boards and friends

Very near future mods: Looking toward a tire carrier in spring, finishing up my SOA and axle swap

Owners’ theory when building vehicle: Upgrade what I break and do it right the first time, one mod at a time. I always want a “streetable” jeep which means it has to at least be highway friendly at ANY point in its build, even when the day comes I have it sitting on 37” tires, but I do not want to lose ALL my comforts… It has to be reliable and get me from point A to point B whether it is on the trail or a cruise down the highway. In the end I want a jeep that may look like a Mall queen (save for the “custom pinstripes”) but be able to show its grunt off-road. I also want my JEEP to look like a JEEP.


Other comments: I do what I can on my very small budget, which in the 8.5 years I have had my rig has been a lot… people tell me things are impossible on my budget, but I have always believed that ANYTHING is possible if you put your mind to it.
