My nearly stock looking jeep has great lines and is a bit of a sleeper. The fact that there is no body damage would suggest that it is a pavement princess that never gets wheeled. On the contrary, I wheel it quite hard but I like it to look good on the way home also.

Looks good, but a little big for a 'sleeper'.

On a 3" suspension, 33s, removing the bellybutton (everyone has one) Rubicon sticker, and a beefier front recovery point, then you'd be sleeping like a baby.

Yeah, his belly still hangs low. He has Long Arms and a proper AEV highline kit. It looks pretty big for how low it sits. It might get a glance of unnotice, but any car guy would see that something is up with it.

Agreed, posted my XJ as a reference since his TJ can keep up with me pretty good.

Here is my sleeper JK (more of a hot-rod than off-road sleeper).





Other than what is under the hood (RIPPMods Stage 2 Supercharger) & the KC Slim Lites, it is stock.

now take that jeep, put it on some 33s, lockers front and rear, geared and chromo shafts, with a atlas transfer case, and good adjustable control arms, and pull off the rubicon stickers would be a really nice sleeper.

mines not a sleeper yet, but getting there. JkS quick discos, JKS 1.25" body lift, JKS HD Tie Rod, OME Sterring shock, 33"x12.5" Goodyear Duratracs on 15x8 OEM Ravines. In the process of installing the OME 2.5 HD lift with currie johnny joint control arms, ford 8.8 & dana 30 hp locked 4:10 geared, tom woods cv driveshaft with sye, tummy tucked skid plate and gas tank skid. Although the bushwaker flat flares may give it away...

Well, it already has lockers front and rear. I've considered 33s, but I think I'll go for 35's for more ground clearance. It is more of a "around the property work-horse"...(towing a trailer, log splitter, pulling felled trees out of the woods, and occasional fun drive down some fire roads). It's a hot-rod sleeper on the street for now.

I believe my CRD is the epitome of the title "Sleeper"!!! 1st, it's a diesel.........now; before you say anything, let me tell you this: about 90% of the people I run across (including Jeep guys) have little to no idea these were ever made. So, kinda like the 5.9 Grands it lurks. 2nd, almost everyone is blown away at the mere fact that I actually wheel the KJ, so imagine their surprise when it truly performs on some fairly difficult trails. Current mods listed below the pics.

I'm currently working on a hidden front reciever to accept a QD winch mount. Also, soon to come will be an upgraded tranny to acceptably hold the planned power increases of an ECM "Hot" program, bigger turbo, and higher hp injectors.









2.5" lift, 31" tires (265/70 A/T's on Moabs or 31" Duratracs on steelies) full custom skids and rock sliders, 8.25 rear w/locker and Yukon HD 1541H shafts, custom HD steel D30 front diff (replaces the weak OEM aluminum junk) with Detroit Trutrac.

Very nice. Now that truly is a sleep. Locked, stock look, diesel is

I almost bought a completely destroyed CRD to drop the motor in my last TJ. I still kind of miss that I didn't.
