It is our ERV (emergency response vehicle) that we take to jumps and park at the DZ incase we need it. It is lifted because the DZ is not always in an easily accessible area. This one is a bit excessive, but it looks cool and gets the job done!

I scored a used OEM shaft for $65! It has a little bit of surface rust, but other than that it is in great shape. Much better than spending $400 on a new one. It is the driver side w/ ELSD shaft. Now I just need to find a passenger side!

It really just depends on the pic. Most of the time I will just use Clarity, HDR, or Vibrant.


What I am working on today finally!




Time for some paint.

Purchase a Uhual trailer, and start hauling all your parts to the trail when you got. Pop the trailer, leave it at the entrance and locked, and then if you break something, you have a mobile garage without adding too much weight to the already heavy Jeep :P

I might have to take some Nate inspired photos of my jeep today since I washed it during lunch.

With all of the parts Nate has, he might have to start renting out a big rig to follow him, haha

Nice! I've been debating doing this as well. You'll have to let me know how it goes.
