Story:
Purchased this Jeep in 2011 with the intent of a mild build and enjoying some offroading on the East Coast. Through Jeepforum I met a lot of guys and got the opportunity to wheel with some of them and began to realize what an addicting hobby it is.
Starting out I would have never thought I would have learned as much as I have about building a jeep and I’ve spared no expense to stick with high quality upgrades. My jeep has become a part of my life as I’m sure it has with many of you.
Just over a week ago now I had the opportunity to make a cross-country trip to Colorado and Moab with a bunch of other forum members and wheel 7 days straight! It was one of the greatest experiences a jeeper could have and I'm extremely happy with how the jeep performed.
Thanks for lookin!
