    Someone was asking about my Jeep so here's my Beast. Bought my first Jeep a 93 YJ in 2000. Got it and added the chrome and stainless bling. Wanted a black Jeep with stainless since I was 10 and would take my brothers 4wd catalog and look over the centerfold. Then swapped out the bumper, added a winch, 2" reverse shackle, 2.5" leaf spring, and 1" body lift. I refused to sell it so it got a frame rebuild and a new paint job. It is going back to a pavement princes only driven in the good weather. There's a pic of me wire wheeling the interior prepping for the herculiner and me cutting a u-joint in the drive shaft. It is sitting now waiting for a new steering collum and rewiring the dash. Ben has been a great teacher and letting me do as much of the work myself I can. It has come in handy since he travels so much I have changed alternators, thermostats, radiators and I believe a water pump while he has been away.

    Photo does not show it but it was a water crossing. It was my first time wheeling and was still stock. Had to dry it out a bit before continuing.

    The TJ Ben had when we first meet is more off road capable. Dana 60 and Detroit locker on rear, limited slip in front, inline 6 and about 8" of lift, 35" tires. No longer streat legal but he lets me have fun with it. If wheeling together we usually swap driving at lunch.

    I like to drive the Jeeps as my daily driver so they are not built as much but do a great job in the Maine winters and light off road. Right now the LJ is my daily driver and I do some light off road fun with it. 4" lift, 33" tires, limited slip in the rear.

    We got it and the LJ and XJ used. I had a 1 hr commute for a few years and the XJ with 2 inc lift was a great Jeep but the Maine winters do a number on them rust wise. Now it needs some work.
