My Mildy Wild 98 TJ

This is my first jeep........had to substitute the street bikes and this is the closest I could come...a JEEP! My wife thought it was a good idea to get rid of the street bikes until she realized that I can spend more money on this one jeep than all the bikes I've had over the years combined! LOVE IT

Bought it stock and added a Teraflex 3in suspension lift, bumpers, tires/wheels and the list is growing




Almost forgot to mention...THIS FORUM ROCKS

I know how you feel...I had a 2000 R6 Yamaha when I bought my Jeep and my wife convinced me to sell the bike the same year.
But hey at least Im saving money on speeding tickets.

Well, I have to confess...I didn't give up two wheels completely....I still hammer down on the trails on the CRF450R!

Thanks for the compliments guys. I'm definately having fun with the jeep and no speeding tickets. I find myself driving slower than I used to; I just poke around now!

Thanks....as soon as I get my winchplate/stinger I'll post some pics! Plus today, I blacked out the light bezels which looks much better in my opinion.

well, I got the winch plate/stinger today. It came bare metal so I had to prep it and paint it. Literally watching paint dry now I hope to get it on and take some pics by the weekend. It's raining cats and dogs here and is a bit on the chilly side so I'm giving the paint some extra time to dry.

funny thing....when UPS delivered today my wife was in the front of the house and yells out, "Did you order something heavy?" When he put it down on the porch I guess it made a thud sound! Yes, this thing is beefy and weighs probably around 40lbs. I can't wait to bolt it on; it's killing me!

Here are some fun pics of one of my favorite street bikes I've had and my "stress reliever"....the 450F. This thing is a beast!

That's a nice bike. I rode a YZ250F the other day and man was it powerful. I can't imagine a 450F. I wish they still made the 2 strokes though :-(. That thing looks almost too clean.
Looking forward to pics of the bumper too.

Thanks...the 250 4 strokes are nice but when I'm riding them I am constantly up in the rpms which equals more valve work for ya. I like the 450 because I can lug it and when you need the power it is there! If I was to get another bike it would be the KTM 250XCW...2 smoke. That is a sweet bike and some of the guys I ride with have them....very nimble.
I used to do some harescrambles but now with the kids it would be hard to do the traveling required to race the circuit. So, now I just ride for fun with the buds!
Got the winchplate mounted up last night which took more modifying than I expected. I had to elongate the holes for them to line up, but I guess with a handmade piece that is to be expected. I'll get some pics tomorrow and post them up...I think it looks sweet!
