Texas Rubicon
 
so, I have been contemplating making a build since I haven't really done as much as other have to there Jeeps, but here it goes.

hope you all enjoy

Here it is the first day I got it :D

It came with a tired and worn 4" Teraflex lift springs, stock control arms and sway bar disco's. 33" tires and some cool wheels. hard top and full doors

Nice looking Jeep. I agree, those are some cool wheels. What are you planning to do to it?

Guzbus 07-23-2010 01:55 PM

I added a Roundeyes headlamp kit

My dad and my uncle :D
http://i96.photobucket.com/albums/l1..._8380624_n.jpg
They helped me out on this alot. since I came back to Korea, my uncle and dad put on the flares and the soft top for me,they also installed the headlamps. They were a big help with the RE lift and the mml/bl combo.
Just last week my mom took it to get the AC flushed and refilled. I cant thank them all enough.

Guzbus 07-24-2010 05:44 AM

not bad for a 19 year old who is away from home, and 5 other projects going on, I got a 73 blazer, 73 jimmy, 82 blazer, 74 3/4 ton long bed, and a 78 half ton long bed. and Only 3 of those actually run and drive.hahaha

I would get all crazy and build one bad Jeep, but I like staying busy :D

Guzbus 07-24-2010 05:47 AM

so what do you guys think?
