My Jeep Many times

I have a million pictures of my jeep, so i have decided to make an on-going thread of what I do with it.


I might stumble on some old pics as I go along, so I will be inserting them in the time line according to when I best remember when they happened.

This is what it looked like when I first got it, and what I sold for it...






And this is the first day with it

First I'll do some mods I've done, they're not really in order because I'm starting this thread now, but I'll try my best.

I had to get rid of those end caps and add a little stinger, also put the KC's up front


Then I added a little more to the bumper and got the winch


I based this bumper off the bumper I built for my previous off roader, my 94 pathy


I also put a K&N in the cowl




Take it from me $450 later don't mess with those bolts holding your back glass on


I built myself a rear rack, and put in some reverse lights & a gas can holder


Later I swapped the clutch fan out for the Tauras




I sleeved my tie rod with a hefty pipe and painted some things


Lined the Tub


I found myself this locker at a junkyard and got it for $18

pulled out my carrier using the winch

My less than $50 On Board Air

A few random shots of the heep

camp in Delta Utah, with the trailer I built


First stuck, before and why I got the winch- 4hrs of digging, then by luck some hill billies happen to pass by




top of guardsman pass, between SLC and park city, with my lovely mother


Flex ramp- notice my new/used soft top?


Forklift flex


Swamp


Little moab- CB


Clutch and front drive shaft broke simultaneously


Out in the ice tundra... 60 below (not really)- you can barely see my snowboard rack i built for behind the spare


Lake crossing

rear rack now removable


Loaded with friends headed up cliff jumping- not a fan of those flimsy mismatched half doors


Headed out with the bikes and the Jeep, gonna be a good weekend -still not a fan of those doors

Got to work on building me some decent half doors



These turned out really nice, I'm proud


Had to have removable door skins for freeway driving


and the nice gentleman that sold me the jeep gave me all the tops you can buy for it- this is my favorite look for my jeep


upper halves soon?

Easter Weekend Moab-09

My ma and her decals shop... she made me this neat little hood sticker




Very snowy the first day


our crew on Kane Creek






Very tippy right here


About 50 river crossings on this trail






Started snowing on us at the end


Hells Revenge




These tubs are deeper than I ever thought, take his full size Cherokee with 37's and stack it on top of itself in your head, very deep...

The locker came out of the front D30 of an XJ. I just spun the rotors when I was passing by and noticed the other rotor spinning the same direction, pulled the diff cap and sure enough...

Little rescue

Went to help my friend get out of a little river stream he got stuck in.
Ended up getting stuck as well, it was a good day


Both front and rear bumpers sitting firm on the ground


Here's how deep he was


Winched myself out


Poser shot unstuck


Here's from where we pulled him out
