After riding in the twins TJ on a trail ride, I was hooked. After the misplacement of my Ram(it was stole) I decided it would be the perfect opportunity to grab a jeep! I like the TJs as well, but I wanted something with a more comfortable interior, and I really hated the front flares on the TJ, so I got my baby!

I am probably forgetting misc. things and have tools, emergency items and more recovery gear stored under the seats. I am planning on doing several mods over the coming months as funds and time allow, but the family wheels and/or camps almost every weekend over the summer. Every mod and maintenance is done by me. I'm planning to do trans. cooler, axles, driveshafts, ram assist, ball joints, HD tie rod, fabricate some voodoo sliders and axle trusses, etc...

Story: In 2006 I test drove an Unlimited Sport. The dealership didn't have many in stock and wouldn't budge on sticker price. I didn't NEED it, so I decided to wait. In 2008, the '09s were on the lot, carmakers were asking for bailout money and LOTS of 08's were still on the lot. I picked a Rubi from what they had on hand with a 34k sticker, got them down to 28k with rebates and drove it home. I installed some 1" Teraflex front spring spacers and drove it over the winter. In the summer I started building my bumpers, installed a 2.5" lift, some used 37" tires and have been wheeling it while building it a little at a time since...

Story:
February of this year I decided I was sick of working on my TJ and I missed wheeling. I parted out the TJ and traded the tow rig Silverado in on a new 2011 JK. I pretty much knew what it would take to get where I wanted to go at my local wheeling spot(Rausch Creek), so I started building immediately using the knowledge I had gained from building and wheeling my past Jeeps.

Story:
After 4 years it is still the "little Jeep that could". It is still only has a Budget Boost and after 60+k miles on it's 33's they are more like 31's, the oil pan is dented, the skids, cross-member and any thing else that hangs low are dented and twisted and have taken numerous hits from the rocks it likes to play on, but it still heads to the off-road park fairly often and regulary wheels with rigs that have more lift and larger tires. Then it returns home and performs it duty as a daily driver without much complaint. Currently Jeep parts are all over the garage floor due to a new clutch install and a upgrade to a Heavy Duty Rock Krawler tie rod. It will get a new set of 33's later this month and by the time they wear out hopefully I will be able to retire it from daily driver status and give it a makeover to more of a dedicated trail rig.

My thoughts exactly!


It means I get to vote for Voodoo, though, and not because he has the unfair advantage of a good camera and decent photo skillz. Probably my favorite build on here.
