Same here. I've found woodworking is much easier, faster, cleaner, less stinky, and much more instantly gratifying than steel. But I haven't figured out how to make a wooden Jeep hold up to hardcore wheeling so I guess I still need to finish this turd.

She almost burned the damn house down!! The girl who was watching our house on our wedding night called freaking out cuz shit was literally on fire under the sink.

And if you count the Scrambler I've probably got those guys beat.....been about 5 years now. Granted I've had a few things to wheel in the meantime, but the project rigs have just been holding down the floor.

Sean,

Whilst viewing your bucket seat ad, I noticed an MTR in the background.... Made me curious if there were any updates to share?

It finally made it to my house and into my garage


No new progress on the rig yet, been busy with house and yard work for too damn long, and when I wasn't doing that I was doing tons of work to prep the garage. I'm almost done with the garage(biggest thing left is to finish the full re-wiring job) and then it's back to the Jeep all winter.

Geez I've parted out one vehicle my whole life and you guys act like it's a regular thing! It got me where I needed it to financially and I now have my dream house so no regrets. This one is pretty well on budget and I've got 80-90% of the needed parts so I think we're safe

I'm surprised there hasn't been a pic of this stuck yet. You're slacking!

It was getting dark when it happened but there's one on FB now. It's not very impressive, the small hill in my yard just got slick as hell with all the rain and I couldn't get out after unloading firewood.

My yard got pretty bad too, and it's flat. Almost took out my fence trying to get back there to get the trailer.

I've been trying to get back at this thing for a year ang have gotten absolutely nothing accomplished on it Always other projects that need my attention on the house, garage, daily drivers, you name it. I want it done but if I don't have time to build it when am I gonna have time to wheel it??

I wish I just had a normal TJ on 33s that I could just drive around and wheel once in a while!! Anybody wanna trade? I'm not really sure whether or not that was a joke.....

Did I just read this right? So I need to find a TJ on 33's to trade then? Lol. This breaks my heart to see Sean. I hope this changes and you have a great deal of motivation that heads your way as well as the DD's running strong to see this build hop back on the tracks :). On the other hand I would love to have this.... But do not have a TJ

I'm not actively trying to sell it, but I'm sick of seeing it sit in the garage and no progress being made while I work on more important things. I want it done too, but at this point I'd just as soon have something ready to go for summer cruising and mild to moderate wheeling. If someone were to offer me a clean, reliable, simple, mildly modded or even stock 4.0/5spd TJ on 31s to 35s I don't think I'd turn it down.

As nice as yours is, it's not what I want. I want a mild TJ.....which is what I wanted when I started this thing but once again I went overboard. Hopefully I'll just get to finish it before the tires turn to powder, but who knows.

That's the plan, but it's also been the plan for the past year of zero progress. Just frustrated.
