Story: My Jeep Redemption is not just a jeep but a symbol for me. The name Redemption was given for 3 reasons. When I was a soldier back in 2000 I owned a 99 Tj and as a private in the 82nd Airborne only had enough cash to pay for the insurance, the payments and life. I couldn't do anything I wanted to and it was then sent to South Korea and couldn't take it with me. While I was away my mother had an accident in the jeep almost totaling it, coming back now married to a Beautiful Korean girl I was then sent straight to IRAQ and she stayed in Korea. After my tour in the sand box I went back to the states and then left back to Korea to live and work. Jeeps not being a common vehicle here they are rarely seen and very expensive in Korea. I then seen a JEEP parked at a local parking spot for people coming in and out of Country on tour and it sat there for 2 years. I stopped everyday for a year hoping for a sale sign and it never came, finally I took the a pic of the license plate and took it to the Local Police on base and they tracked the owner down for me. I contacted him and after a month of bugging the crap out of him he sold me a 2003 TJ with 27,000 miles for $3500 Dollars. The jeep was in almost excellent shape minus not having a top and for 2 years a little weather had gotten through the bikini top, some mold and alot of cleaning had to be done, and after 6 hours of steam cleaning it was like new. Being 100% completely stock I went to work and this is what it's become. Redemption for the jeep being abandoned for 2 years, Redemption for my first TJ and me not getting to get here to her full potential and Redemption for myself, we all seek it. Id also like to note all these upgrades have been done since Nov 2013 when I purchased the Jeep. The transformation and obstacles I've had to overcome with living in Korea have been crazy, getting parts here is an absolute nightmare as well as finding a shop to assist with things. I live in 25 floor apartment and most my upgrades have been done in my Basement garage at 1am in the morning due to my job and my kids. It has not been an easy ride but dang fun and rewarding when the necks break looking at my creation. Built Not Bought, Project Redemption from Seoul South Korea.
