I bought my TJ new in 2005 to build it to drive out west to explore and camp in remote places, which led me to set it up to tow a custom box trailer to make camping even better! My Jeep can safely tow the 1100# trailer at 70-75 mph across multiple states, drive awesome trails, camp in scenic, remote places, and drive back home. I've tried to think everything out, and like everyone, I'm not done with it.

Pictures: Towing the trailer to camp in the BFE Coral Reef National Park in central Utah; camping in the roof top tent (that's mounted on top of the trailer) along Lake Powell; after pulling the trailer (like a mountain goat) up Gemini Bridges trail north of Moab.

Story:
I bought the Jeep 3 years ago as a father son project with my then 2 year old. It was worn out and hacked together. A couple dollars and 100s of hours later. This is the finished product. My son is now 5 and does not miss a trip out. We frequent the Missouri parks, but are looking forward to the Jeep forum 2.0 trip to Colorado this summer. I have been through a handful of axle shafts, a transmission, and 3 ring and pinions. Needless to say, I have learned a ton and had some great experiences.

I also have already started collecting parts for swapping in Super Duty axles and a rear stretch next winter.

Story:

My family's stock LJ was passed down to me when I turned 17, when I got my license. Over the course of the next 4 years, I have slowly modified it to what it is now. This forum, and a few like this are really what has given me the knowledge to build my jeep to what it is today. You can follow my build here: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f22/t...ildup-2337401/

Story (optional):
My dad bought his first Jeep when I was 14. A 2004 Rubicon that we've taken to Moab multiple times a year since that time. I was always hooked and knew that once I was out of high school I would definitely need to be getting my own Wrangler. When I was finally able to purchase my own vehicle I found this awesome 2006 Rubicon within my price range. Picked it up and have slowly been changing out all the parts that didn't work for me or were worn. It drives perfectly down the road and is constantly surprising me off-road even though I'm always scheming new ways to afford more parts for it. It is really a lifelong hobby and joy for me. In the near future I hope to get it competition ready for events like the Utah Old School Rock Crawl, and races around the Southwest.

It's really been a great learning experience. Doing things I never thought I would be, like welding, wrenching, and even fiberglass repair and body work!

Mods: LS1 engine swap (out of a Corvette), 4l60e, atlas 4 speed (1:1, 2.72:1, 4.3:1, 11.7:1), custom built cage, 1 tons, 42's, and a few more small things here and there. For more details, check out my build thread. TAALA 2 BUILD THREAD

Story: I never thought I would end up building a jeep to this level. I started off with a budget boost and 31's on this jeep. Which turned to 33's, then 35's, then 37's, then 39.5's, and finally 42's while going through 3 sets of axles. It has been quite the journey! This jeep is the enabler for so many instant friendships that have evolved into years of true friendship. This jeep has been one of the best investments I've made.

Pictures (a big thanks to by friend Scott Jarvie and his mad photography skills):

"Moab Moonrise" Yep, that is the moon behind me.


This picture was taken on Fins and Things in Moab.
