Default project "JEEPjeep"

i guess it's time for me to start my own build i have already done some mods to the page but i can explain and start new things here. the XJ got the name JEEPjeep from my 3 yr old niece and 2 yr old nefew. every time they come to the house they want to ride jeepjeep. so i will start with the mods i have already.
-2 in spacer and AAL
-removable doors (broke hinge right now.)
-no bumper with only d-ring tow points
-4 KC 150w daylighters
-warn 8274 winch (not installed anymore hoping to get rid of it.)
-no headliner (best mod ever!)
-kinda cut fenders
-STICKERS
and in the future im looking at
-rc 4.5 LA
-tube bumpers
-roof rack
-33 12.50 tires
-lockers
-ARMOUR
-cupholders
haha the list will get longer.
so i will post a few random pics i have from the day i got it up till now. completly stock the day i got it.. don't know what happend to the pic.

well i got the hinge pin out... drill press worked great. thanks to my mothers boyfriend howard. he busted his knuckle tryina drill it out last night with a cheap bit and a drill haha. sometimes i wonder how smart we really are. but my removable doors work like a charm now. got the driverside hinges lined up perfectly the passenger side needs to be adjusted just a tad more. still hits the fender a little. and i need something bigger to use for pins because it saggs. no pics unfortunatly. ill take pics of what i did tomarrow in daylight.
