Nrth...Sorta. I traded my YJ for this jeep and $$. Then I sold another car of mine to help fund this buildup. It just works MUCH better for me than the YJ did. I DO miss the Yj immensly, but I would have had to tow it up north or anywhere of any distance, and I only had a Dodge neon as another vehicle, and they suck for towing. Trust me! LOL

Thanks guys. The built the bumper and roof rack myself. I think total I have like $90 into them. $60 into the bumper and $30 into the roof rack. My 1st time bending tubing. Could have been a little better, but like I said, 1st time. By the end I was getting the hang of it pretty well.

I love the gunmetal blue. Looks real nice with the black I think.

Tombs....I think I am gonna start building some soon. I have a couple buddies who want them too. I need to get an argon tank for my welder so I can lay a better bead, then I shoud be all set. Right now I am not happy with the quality of the welds because my little mig sucks, but the argon will help a lot and I am also gonna run a dedicated circut for it which will also help a ton.

mkirkon, thanks man. Ya after I got the Xj, I had no use for the neon and it was just sitting here and I didn't want it to go to waste. I ended up doing the tune up on it and it ran great. I never had one problem with that car.
