Jeep Information


Just finished the big project started last year; making the Jeep ours. Started with the interior. Replaced the old seats (really beat up) with new Bestop TrailMax II's; stripped out the old carpet and Herculined the entire tub; refinished the dash, door panels and center console with Rustoleum; new Bestop sport bar covers; replaced the front dash speakers (they were blown) with new Kicker 4x6's. Then the exterior. New Bestop Trektop NX ( BTW, it's a great top); new Rugged Ridge All-Terrain fender flares; 2" BB lift; mirror relocation brackets (for riding without doors). The following had to be done because of the age of the vehicle and the fact that all existing parts were original parts that just wore out over 16 years. New Monroe Sensa-Trac shocks all around including steering damper (all were blown or leaking); new (rebuilt) steering gear (original leaked like a seive); new muffler and tail pipe (rusted to hell); new front turn signals and side markers; new front and rear bumpers (originals were wrecked from front and rear fender-benders) and decided to go with flat bumper end caps instead of the bulbous behemoths that came stock. Finally, painted entire exterior with Herculiner; matte grey. Paid $1200 total for the Jeep AND a 4x8 utility trailer. Have about $5000 total invested in both now. Enjoying the Jeep tremendously. Check it out.
