Attached File  1.jpg   19.68KB   10 downloadsI found this 98 TJ locally for 5k. It was in horrible shape, took my wife and I 2 full days just to clean-up the inside. It was used in Chester to plow snow at a hotel there, and NEVER was cleaned or maintained. 4 months later and lots of overtime, this is what I have so far. It has a 3" Rubicon Express spring/spacer lift, brand new GY Duratrac 33's, smittybilt bumpers, and Rockhard side bars. It's only a 4 banger/ 5spd. A winch eventually, and just added a cb and front bumper driving lights after the picture was taken. My wife loves going out exploring, now all I have to do is figger out how to mount the rifles inside.

You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

Your hard work has shure paid off! it looks nice from here. before I married I had always driven a jeep. altho I miss the go anywhere attitude of them I dont miss having to look for places to put everything. my first two jeeps had a verticle rack between the seats that was the best Ive found for keeping a rifle handy. it really got in the way tho if you had kids trying to pass stuff from the front to the back. now that we dont have kids at home Ive been eyeballing the jeeps again.

Good looking Rig! It will most likely serve you well.

  • Interests:I love shooting all types of guns and hunting. I shoot and reload for my shotgun, my .45, and my .223. I love deer hunting ,but there aren't very many deer these days. I really enjoy Coyote hunting. It's very exciting calling in a wild animal. I also try to practice with my .45's as much as I can. I am a member of the NRA and the CRPA.

I saw the jeep before any work began on it, and now to look at it, it looks like a totally different jeep. Great job on the makeover!
