Looking nice, the stock stuff needs more reinforcement. It would be cool to change the front to "no tip" steering, it is nice for strength and safety. But you do have some added width there. haha

Looks sweet, simple, yet very effective. Most of my shit turns out overly complicated and expensive. Simplicity is key!

how about a "trail rated" badge, an orange bike flag for a CB antenna and perhaps a little yellow paint on the undercarriage parts to simulate aftermarket shocks etc. Great idea and your gonna make your daughter one proud lady. hope she grows up to be a jeep lovin mud honey, not some malibu barbie!

yup, I did get it done. Just haven't been online in a while.

here's a bunch of the 95% finished product. I still need to get the flame decals and the beadlocks. I didn't have the railing done until last night so she got it for x-mas missing that, but she didn't seem to mind.











the G-rated truck nuts were my bro's idea.

Enjoy, I sure did!

I agree, that's why you start them young with the hobbies you enjoy. Our first wheeling trip will be in February, she'll be about 11 months old then. I've been driving my jeep as a daily driver for the last 2 months so she's been getting a ride every morning to day care and she's always smiling when I put her in it.
