Jeepin Dad

Story:
Had an '89 YJ that I was planning on building up but then my wife and I had our 2nd child and decided the YJ was just a little to small, luckily the JKs had just come out and the 2 doors had just enough more space not to have to make the jump up to 4 door. I have nothing against the 4 doors but personally prefer the size and more classic look of the 2 doors. I would have liked a Rubicon but it was just out of our price range so I bought an 2 door X with the freedom top, but I did spring for the "Rubi-Lite" package: 4:10 gearing, 32 spline Rear Dana 44 w/electric locker, electic swaybar disconnect. To make the 2 door a little more family friendly my first mod was to add the safari rack, not easy to start drilling holes into a 2 week old Jeep. The last mod I did was add some front springs off a 4 door Rubicon to get my lift back, after a couple of year with the extra weight of the bumper and winch my stock springs were really sagging. The Jeep is my dailly driver but the boys and I regularly take it up to Rausch Creek Off-Road Park to play on the rocks.

Story:
Our story started with an 04 TJ purchased as a Montana winter vehicle, and over the last 6 years jeeping has morphed into a family obsession. Now we have his and her JKs, the old TJ, a 3 car wedge trailer, and a 1 ton dually to pull everything. We spend as many as 4 weeks a year wheeling as a family in Moab and other locales, plus another 9-10 weekends a year with our local 4x4 club.

I bought my JK so my son could use our 04 TJ as his high school daily driver. The purpose behind my 2 door JK build has been low center of gravity with good flex and stability because it is my daily driver. I would not hesitate to drive it 800 miles to Moab, wheel it hard for a week, and drive the 800 miles home.
