Well its time to start my build thread on my heep of a jeep. I picked her up about a year ago from a buddy of mine that was getting ready to deploy to afghanistan. I bought it for 500.00 and drove it home. There was nothing wrong with it when I got it and was in pretty good shape. I then started to mod it. The pictures pretty much explain themselves.

Hit me up tomorrow and I will see if I can help you with anything. If nothing else I can try and be a tool gopher man. Oh and I will see what I can do about getting you the cross beams that will actually fit your rack when I talk to the junk yard about the axle, tranny, and driveline. I am excited your build is coming together bud!

Yeah if you are doing any work on it, you should definitely throw them leaves on so that you can get some positive lift over them blocks man. But I really like what you have done with it, it's coming along nicely man!
