cj's have no limits.

j/k, a cj like yours is far more capable than most think, you will be surprised how far it will go.

Very nice lookin rig! I hope mine looks as clean and well put together as yours when she's all finished. I always thought the various "pod" speakers would look ugly and out of place in my jeep, but seeing them in yours has changed my mind. They seem to fit in quite nicely. At this point, though, speakers are WAAAYYYY down the road!

You know, I wasn't sure of the speakers at first either...wanted to keep it closer to original than not, but I think it came out well and I've never regretted having the ability to drown out the tires a little

My first trip out in it since getting it "finished" and by finished I mean everything running/working like I want. Still plenty to be done. I avoid crazy mud which is how I keep the clean look, but I'll get down in some. I mostly enjoy trails....been to Superlift Off Road Park in Arkansas, drove Hell's Revenge at Moab, and been to Stony Lonesome in AL; now I live a couple of hours from the Rubicon in NorCal...problem is, the Jeep is still in AL

Great looking '7!!

Are you planning on getting the CJ to NorCal eventually?

If so, please resist the urge to chop it up! It seems to be the current trend for the folks on the Rubicon these days, even though a mildly/tastefully built CJ can hold its own.

I often feel like ripping my rear-view mirror off, too, when someone's driving on my a$$.

Just yankin' your chain, man, that's the only thing I could see wrong with her. She's beautiful!!

Strong work.

Matt

Yep, she's (he's?) a great-looking rig.

Personally, I'd be hesitant to wheel it for fear of the one-off, "Nevada Pin Stripe" on the paint.

I have an identical crack in the windshield. Same location with regard to the side wall and same angle upward but mine's on the driver's side. New rubber install "woopsie" ?

Again, it looks great. Well done

Bama....1 inch body, Superlift 6 inch springs...still rubs every so slightly the fender flare in the rear in full articulation; but it's not too bad.

Your rig is gorgeous. I took the liberty of adjusting the color curves a bit in your first photo to really make her pop. Hope you don't mind:

Good to hear. I'll be looking forward to those pics.
