Story: I bought this Jeep new off the showroom floor in 2001 as a daily driver for my wife. After 3 years of occasional hunting out of it, I went on my first real trail run and was hooked. It has taken 6+ years to bring my rig to its current state. I thank my loving wife and 2 daughters for putting up with the late hours and tons of money put into my big weekend toy. It is still undergoing changes, like being lowered an inch this week, new rear suspension re-design, etc. I still have more plans for it when money allows, like an auto tranny, Atlas, boat sides and back half, etc. This thing gets used more than a $2 hooker, and looks worse, but I love it. The Jeep……not the hooker.
