well my old jeep (one in my avatar) has proven to just be waaaay to unreliable(breaks on about 80% of the trips, teach me to buy a car that sat for 5 years). so i had this old jeep i originally bought for a parts car for a wopping 250 bucks but then my brothers bug broke and he needed a car yada yada yada, its been a reliable car for the year weve owned it so i have now decided to use my old one as the parts car and this one as my new knight so here she is!

i was thinking of taking the old xfer case and axel out, but it was a auto and this ones a stick and i would much rather have a stick so thats gonna be farther down the road. today replaced the driver door! doesnt match but it has rubber seals so it doesnt full with water and isnt all dented lol. and we horribly painted it but oh well lol felt semi productive :P

doorless!


new door



door installed


and a little flexing :P


then i had to go threw the mud, axel is deff next... lol getting ford 8.8 and a locker
