-4.0
-ax-15
-Atlas 4 t-case
-fabricating a custom dash from scratch
-working on on board air
-working on a tons swap
-working on just about everything just short of a frame off/engine swap to be completely honest...
-Oh and a rattlecan paint job for good measure

My first jeep. Bought it in 2013 with a small lift and 33s already on it. Wheeled it a few times, daily'd it pretty much everywhere, then pulled it off the road to rebuild it from the ground up... 6 years later very little progress has been made. I blame my wife. I bought her a JK that she dailys AND wheels pretty hard... guess which vehicle keeps getting all my attention? [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/JeepForum_2016/smilies/tango_face_sad.png[/IMG]
Anyway, Even though I haven't driven it in years, I still love the thing like it was my own child. I found some pictures of it from before I garaged it, so maybe I'll get more than just one (pity) vote this time around <img src="https://www.jeepforum.com/ubb/cheers.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Cheers" class="inlineimg" />


The day I brought it home. I fell in love with it pretty much instantly on the drive home from the lot.

The one and only time I washed it. It proceeded to break down for several months the same day, so I don't wash jeeps anymore...

My first time wheeling it. Rausch Creek in PA, Topless for Tatas trail.

One of my fave pics I've ever taken, not just of the jeep, but of anything.

Lil' More:
Still awaiting arrival of my back ordered PS Rocker Knockers and Bilstein 5125s for the rear, but i thought i'd populate the list a bit. Been one heck of a little over decade daily driving my project. She's been my huckleberry through hail, rain, snow, salt, wind, sleet, ice, hunting, many road trips, daily driving, wheeling. Along with this forum, this YJ journey has been a fantastic distraction from the daily grind and has taught me a lot. I have officially retired her from daily driving November 2020 – and i miss the hell out of her. Sure do like being able to take my time and enjoy working on it as opposed to rushing through putting her back together before Monday morning rush hour though. Given my working environment, it's been a tough but extremely rewarding project. I'm glad i started it early enough in life. She is rounding up and almost “complete”. After the projected mods listed up there ^, am hoping to hit up the trails like MAD Spring, Summer, Fall 2022. I'm just waiting on the engine or transmission to die to give it a powerplant transplant. Money comes and goes, but experiences and lessons learned are forever. Remember folks, everything in moderation – even moderation <img src="https://www.jeepforum.com/ubb/thumbs.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumbs Up" class="inlineimg" />

Oh my. 4 entries and a tough choice. I could probably read through again and pick another, read again and pick another, rinse repeat. A great line up guys. I am jealous of your rigs.

If you cannot fix it with a hammer then it has to be an electrical problem.
