My Jeep family.


Starting the rebuld process. Chopped the old top off and welded on a new one from a donor Jeep. New hood taken from same Jeep.



Coming together.


Rhinolined entire interior.


$40 paint job and trimming.


Back on the road finally after pulling a header panel.




LED license plate so I don't get pulled over.


Trans kept overheating on long hill climbs so installed these bad boys.


Got bored haha


Spins em no problem on 35's after all the weight she lost.


Front bumper.




Rock sliders.
