my jeeping carrier started when i met my wife and her stock jeep(97TJ). i just wanted to
go wheeling and we found this dodge power ram50 Piece of shit for cheap.
i bought her a brushguard, new wheels and 31's. (i like the jeep better than my truck)
my wife and me playing in her jeep.
so i bought myself a stock 95XJ. this was the first time flexing it(still stock). dealership provided a volvo to play on. (sorry. camera phone)
my first real trailride with a club (still stock)
newest addition to the family. 71 CJ5. hopefully ready by late summer06.
my wifes TJ was recently in an accident and is getting "fixed" with a HP dana30, 4"lift, SYE, new wheels w/33's,
new front bumper with 9000#winch, poison spyder rocker guards, etc...etc...etc....
and this x-mas my wife bought me a 3" lift for my XJ and gave me the wheels and 31's off of her TJ to put on the XJ.
it's also getting a new rear bumper from cassidy customs with D-rings and built in hitch receiver.
hopefully i'll be done "fixing" the TJ and putting the lift on the XJ in the next few weeks and then i'll post an update.
these jeeps just grow up so fast.

well as i had previously posted my wifes TJ was in an accident this last december when another car lost control in the snow and took out the front axle/suspension/steering/brush guard. so i went ahead and build it up. it took me from the 3rd week in december until the 2nd friday in febuary. so it's been done for a while and my wife loves it. (pics at end of post)

well i finially got the Poison Spyder Rocker guards installed yesterday. i sandblasted them in my basement saturday afternoon, and then sprayed them with 4 cans of bedliner. turned out really nice. oh and i installed a 1/4" body lift because i was to lazy to "remove 3/8" from the top of the body mount" as per poison spyder's instructions. :D

yeah that's next on my list. but right now i have to empty my garage first. i had to install those rocker guards in the alley where it's sitting in the pictures, cuz i have my XJ with the blown motor in the garage and my 71 that's all stripped down sitting/laying next to it.
hopefully in the next couple month i'll blast the frame and then spray it with bedliner or rubberized undercoating. for now i'll probably just hit it with a can of rust converter just so it looks black instead of rusty.

here is one of it with all the mods except the rocker guards on.
here she parked her newly lifted jeep at work, and her boss decided to park his hummer next to it.
then suddenly the "big dogs" decided to try and intimitade her....doesn't look like it's working. LOL
