Default YJ Boat

I think I am going to boatside my YJ to get rid of the rust and damage I caused while wheeling it.

So I though with some big tires like the 39.5 Iroks that are on it what would it take to make it float.

Maybe some small pontoons on each side?

I figured fishing season is almost here and it would be fun to fish out of my Jeep.

Hire some Cubans.

Anybody who can make an old Chevy stakebed truck float should have no problem with a jeep.

Is Scott still selling those barrels? Problem solved.

Better yet, throw a party at Scott's, we'll come help empty the kegs, then you can use them for pontoons.

Wait inflatable boats, one on each side. Like two sidecars, more the merrier.
