I went from a BIG chevy mud truck to a completley stock zj build. Not to bad of a challenge.

going out to the cliffs tomorrow in Marsales, Illinois if anyone is from around here and wants to join. There is about 5-10 of us going I think

Had a great friend Tony help with the bumper. He had the tubing bender. I did all the welding. I'm a Chicago LU597 pipefitter welder. got to use the skills other than work!!!!

Hey it's a Jeep. You're never finished! There's always something to work on.
