my son flexing his rig

ok, so it doesnt flex too good but he loves it. Ask him what his favorite car is and he will tell you, "I dont like cars, I like jeeps!" bout brings a tear to this jeepers eye.......lol. the jeep was pink until he did the custom camo paint.

If you ever pass a jeep with a lil kid in it waving at you frantically, it will be him. when he sees a jeep he starts yelling for everyone to wave.

nah, I bringing him up like i was brought up. If you want something you have to earn it, nothing in life is free. He might end up with one of my parts jeeps but if he wants to beable to drive it, it will be up to him to get it road/offroad worthy.

thats what this was. i was on a job one day and saw this barbie jeep in someones dumpster. i asked the owner bout it and he said the battery was shot and his granddaughter didnt like it anyway. so i took it home with me and my son helped paint it the way it is now, i had an old battery from a com backup that i threw in it, its hella fast now. so i guess the saying is true, ones man garbarge is another mans treasure.

Awww :(

I wanted one of those little barbie jeeps when I was a kid. Never got one tho. To bad they don't have a bit bigger ones with real suspension and rubber tires =). You could always get a gocart and convert it into a Jeep I guess hehe...

my father is working on it right now. he isnt sure if he is going to fab his own body or buy one of the the mini-MB bodies. my kid is gonna be the only kid in town with a tube frame jeep with working suspension and 4wd. he was hoping to have it done for xmas but got too busy with other things.

Good idea

Me and my dad brought up the idea of building a little jeep buggy (like gocart size) and have that for fun.

..I think I should bring up the idea again lol.
