Notice the bad *** trashbag safari top for my 2 year old. He has not missed a wheeling trip in over a year. Better than my fiance to say the least.





Savvy front bumper also came in today. It is a little rough, so I guess I am going to paint it. Also got the Currie control arm skids in so I dont destroy the new JJ on the Savvy arms.

Thanks! Didnt quite realize what I was getting into when I bought it, but so far it has been a lot of fun.

Thank you!

Getting the JJ kit welded on Monday and the new Savvy Aluminum lowers added at the same time. Then the front suspension will be done for what I need it for.

Now, what to do with my ****ty rear settup...

Although poorly packaged, brown santa did drop off some new stuff to work on this weekend.

JJ kit welded in and the new control arms installed. DW is finally fixed!!!! Still shakes like a SOB between 35-45, need to figure out how to get the the tires ballanced. Hopefully the local 4WD shop has better luck than Plaza did

Control arms in, JJ bracket kit welded up. Bumper installed and winch bolted on. Just need to run the cables to the battery, put the steering skid back on, and tighten everything up. 3 weeks till Jeep Stock at SMORR!

After 8 months and a ton of work. I can drive it again. Crossed RR tracks, and was comfortable cruising on the highway.

For this being my first real build, I am pretty damn proud of the evelution since she was purchased.

Getting married in Oct so wheelign trips are going to be scarce with the exception of Jeep Stock

Ordered the PSC hood luver kit. Hopefully it will keep the old ***** from over heating.

Jeep Money is now gone before the wedding
