Story: I bought the TJ bone stock complete with the right hand drive conversion in 2006, everything else was built by me. I bought it to deliver mail in and wanted to keep it stock for the most part because my CJ-7 was my toy. After finding out that TJs are more capable and more fun than the simple CJs, it became more of a toy.
Having to keep it drive-able at all times kept my modifications at a minimum, or had to be finished before the next delivery day.
Last year I moved to a mail route with a postal truck on it and retired my TJ to commuter and weekend warrior. When that day came, I bought a stinger front bumper, soft top, and half doors. Otherwise this is how I delivered people's mail!
Adding to the stock cage and finishing the rear suspension will be tackled this spring.

My dad bought this Jeep new on Easter weekend of '98 and drove it for a while, then he gave it to my sister, and then to me the summer before I left for college. The Jeep has been mine for about a year and a half now. They kept it stock and it has been other Jeep buddies and myself that have made all of the modifications to it so far. It is currently my daily driver and one day I want to retire it from DD duty, but keep it street legal with good road manners.
