Story:
-Bought this Heep off craiglist back in July of 08 after it had been totaled. The front was smashed in to the engine block, the front axle was bent, there was some serious damage to the rear passenger tub and overall it was in rough shape. Bought the jeep sight on seen and had no idea if the frame was bent or if the engine had any serious problems. Got the heep back home and started gather parts to put it back together. My goal with this build was to do it on a budget and get as many things used as possible and sell off any un-used parts I could to recoup some of the costs. I worked every night after work in the parking lot of my apartment into the late night hours and had it running and drivable within a month. (Thanks to my buddy Evan for all his help and helping me install the front axle in the parking lot in the middle of a rain storm) After it was running and drivable it has been a constant build with adding mods here and there in between wheeling trips to Moab and around Colorado. It has been a great rig that has brought much joy and adventure to my family and I.

Thanks for looking!
