Story: I bought this Jeep new off the showroom floor in 2001 as a daily driver for my wife. After 3 years of occasional hunting out of it, I went on my first real trail run and was hooked. It has taken 6+ years to bring my rig to its current state. I thank my loving wife and 2 daughters for putting up with the late hours and tons of money put into my big weekend toy.

Story: I have done all the work by myself. I started out in February of 2010 with just a simple LCOG build. Highline fenders, 2.5 in lift, Tummy Tuck, and 35 in MTRs. I completed the build in May. I was hit by a driver on a cell phone on June 1st, resulting in a flop on my passenger side. After a few weeks of fighting with the INS Company I was paid for the damages to my Jeep, funding some of the second part of my build. I sold off some of my like new parts also. Recoil sent me a link for a set of new JK Rubicon axles for a good deal. I ordered a pair of TNT trusses and some other Rokmen goodies. I spent 2 months with 100 plus temps stretching my frame, cleaning and welding the TNT trusses on the new JK axles. I also built from scratch 1 ton steering with spider trax hiems. I finished the Jeep a week before my second trip to Badlands, with some of my JF brothers and IndyORV guys. I am very happy with my Jeep. I drive it everyday to work 60 miles round trip. I get a ton of looks and thumbs up.

This is my very first Jeep. I love everything about it. For a broke college student, most everything on this rubi has been invilved in a trade for an upgrade (for example: 33's trade for 35's). I'm always thinking of how to make it look the best, for the cheapest, and most fuctional way possible. It has just started, but the rubi's life has a long path ahead of it and isn't even close to being finished yet. -Craig
Front, Dana 60/44 hybrid, Rear 60
I recently finished my 2001 TJ's build. This is the first Jeep I've owned. Over the past 3 years, I've learned a ton about Jeeps, and developed some new skills. After wheeling it hard in its stock form, I desired more. I wanted a daily driver that killed it on the rocks. I knew this would take a ton of research, and a ton of work. I searched and searched, and finally, after a few years, I found some axles that I thought would be a great swap. The front, a 60/44 hybrid, the rear, a 60. These axles inspired the complete build. I just needed a place to do the build. I had recently picked up a welder, and freshened up some old skills. As it turns out, I had a friend of a friend who had a garage. He was going to be out of town for 3 weeks, and if I could get it done in that amount of time, the garage was all mine. After building the Jeep in the parking lot of my condo complex. I figured this garage was a great opportunity! I quickly dove in head first. I'm extremely happy with the latest modifications. It was a ton of work and a ton of fun...of course it is never done!
