I have a 2001 TJ bought new. Went from stock 30's to 35's and did the whole mud thing, then went back down to 31's and stayed away from the mud. Threw a lunchbox locker in the front and had a blast as I quit breaking crap. In 2012 I pulled the motor, tranny and transfer case with plans of a chevy 350 running propane, 1-tons and possible tube back half. Been sitting in pieces ever since. New motor lacks rockers, push rods and intake but the bulk of it is done. Unfortunately this project stalled 3 years ago due to lack of funds. Hopefully my new employment will start soon and I can throw a little more money at it.

Looks like you were down in the Canadian Riverbed Donny! I have been down there with my TJ. One of my lifelong friends lives in Dumas. He does a lot of drag racing and owns a team.

Totally understand taking the time to build your Jeep. Either pay someone or do it yourself when time and funds allow. Hopefully the new job venture pans out and money is available.

Well then if you're hung up in a crevice of a steep cliff like area you'd need to winch out, right?

Absolutely love this!!! ColoradoTJ, you'd be really good friends with my buddy KC.

I do enough trailing and crawling to get there and watch you hardcore guys... I'm that friend that drags it up and flips it back over... the recovery part lol

Respect for you my friend. [email protected]$$!
