Project "Tonka TJ" (Slow Build)

This is my 2001 TJ. It has been a slow year with money being tight but, I figured why not start one of these. I got alot of ideas just the cash is a problem but, I think that's how it is with most people lately. But, anyways here it was the day I bought it.





And here is a little bit of stock muddin'!

Considering the tires are 31x10.50, no. They are 15's. It would look much better with the side steps removed. Otherwise, looks sharp.

I honestly don't know. It was on there when I got it. I thought it was kinda neat. It give me somewhere to put camping stuff and things like that.

The Jeep is looking good so far. Have fun working on it and getting it to the way you envision.
