Okay, so I have always wanted to start a build thread. But never did. But I want a place to post my adventures and any future mods. So, I will take you through a quick history of my jeep, from when I got it to where it is now. I will be posting any future awesomeness from here on out.

Then I decided to really overhaul it. I took it to my buddy's house, because he has all the fancy tools. This is the day it went in.
