Here it is guys and gals. I spent the last 2 years building a vision of a Jeep from nothing more than a pile of scrap parts. I tried to stay close to the original vision as possible it was tough and easy at the same time. The budget restraints kept me from deviating from the plan to far. I tried to use used parts from other Jeep Forum members where I could. Thanks for all the great deal on used parts JF, you guys know who you are. This is my third Jeep build I believe I have 2 more left I want to build.
Started as a TJ tub, cut and moved the rear of the tub forward to close out the cab, built a custom hard top, built a custom bed and stretched the frame to fit it all on a 114 inch WB. I built this Jeep not as a Hardcore wheeler, but as a Daily Driver street queen with some mild wheeling.

.
Plans in the works: Finish the stereo system, install the heated seats, JW speaker headlights, Lots of LED lights, Ten factory axle shafts, 5:13 gears, ARB lockers, Build a Custom cage inside the cab and in the bed then just enjoy. NOT FOR SALE

Thanks for all the votes and support guys and gals. It's been fun building a unique rig, I forget how different it is till I drive through the city or down the freeway. The attention is like no other, even tops the attention the Flop project got. Stay tuned to my build for some wheeling and adventure pictures and updates.

Thanks Again.
