I usually have several people say to me "I can't believe where you've took that today" I know my Jeep, and I know when to back out and say "I'll pass on that". The stats are at the bottom, and I hope to add a rear locker soon!

I was one of the guys who has said "I can't believe where you've taken that today" This qualifies as a sleeper rig in my opinion....

One thing I love about a sleeper is that it attracts less attention from certain specific people...like thieves, vandalists, and authorities...all without sacraficing what we are all enthusiastic about, the performance of our vehicles.

This is usually a lot easier to accomplish if you run a daily driver. The fact that it needs to be comfortably roadworthy kind of puts a limit on the big ticket mods. I think of it as an excuse to make the daily drive more fun (not that I really own what you might call a sleeper but we all try).

I agree with Idaho. J-mox definitely seems like a pretty good sleeper. Of course also any 'rubicon' would sorta be also because they can go almost anywhere stock. But I also like J-Mox's because I'm building mine similar with keeping everything painted to match and kept factory looking because they look good stock so why try to change that much?
Also reading his sig, locked front, lsd rear, flat belly skid- all under a Wrangler X, on 31's. Very sweet sleeper and probably still a GREAT daily driver. Of course I'm surprised there's not some more cherokee's in here. My brothers old 97 xj on a 3" OME and 31" bfg at's was rediculously impressive offroad. It was open front and rear but on some of the trails we run my TJ on 33's open struggled more on some ledges than his did. It walked around all the trails leading the group with tj's on 35's and 33's and got past some parts a SAS liberty on 36's couldn't make it over.

I still love those powder coated moabs (although I would have gone charcoal rather than black), and I envy you for the half doors.

My buddies always tell me that a huge part of the sleeper needs to be a kickass driver...

Here's mine, you guys tell me if it's a sleeper. Front tow hooks, skid plates, class 3 hitch, rock rails, 2" lift and 30" m/t's


Just a slightly modded XJ with a little lift, some armor, four mud tires and a few decals, so far.

If you had front/rear lockers, onboard air, a teralow kit, and a retractable sidewinder missile system...... maybe.

Nice XJ, though!
