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.

My Dad bought my Jeep when I was thirteen as a weekend car and when I turned sixteen he passed it down to me. Now let me let you know that when I got my Jeep from my Dad it looked nothing like it does today. It was basically the "Pep Boys special". It started as a Jeep with no lift on 32's and had plastic stick on air vents and cheap seat covers. So with each job I worked at I saved up money to start building my Jeep. I wanted to keep my Jeep as a "sleeper", meaning that most people see my jeep as just another Jeep with 33's and a few bolt ons. Clearly it's not and will keep up with the "bigger" Jeeps. I can say that if I looked back seven years ago today, I would of never had imagined how fair i've gone in building my Jeep. I'm truly satisfied.

My plan for now is not to add anything to my jeep (at least try too). Just travel and take advantage of my Jeep and what the U.S has to offer. This summer I'm planning on taking a trip to Moab, UT with my Dad, should be a fun trip!!

In on day 1!
Several great rigs here, but one set of axles blows me away.
