Default Jeeps

I am a complete novice at golf carts (by novice, I mean complete idiot), however one thing I am not a novice at is jeeps. Pretty much every make, model, year (71 -JK) from bone stock to fully customized. I have worked on them in drive ways, in professional shops, in the mountains in the snow, in mud, upside down, on the side of hills with the winch holding them from rolling down... you name it I have worked on a lot of jeeps!

Here is a few jeeps that I have built for myself. I only have one currently, responsible parenting and buying our land has forced me to sell all but one and it's been in storage for 7 years ( I pull it out around spring every year and putt it around and then put it back in). As soon as our new house is built, we are buying a new Jeep whether it be a JL or a Jeep truck.

I am trying the paper clip attachment for pictures, in all my forum years I have never done this, I've always used photobucket or flickr, so if the pics don't look right let me know.

My first jeep is the Green CJ-5, it was my first vehicle. Got it when I was 14, I built it all through highschool and finished it my senior year of school. When I got it, it was a junky old deer lease jeep. Here is a quick vid I put together 12 years ago....

My wife and I got engaged in a Jeep, and drove off from our wedding in my CJ5.

I owned a lot of jeeps through the years, but these are the 4 that I was most proud of..... Most of the jeeps I owned were just kind of plain jeeps with just a standard lift and tires, but these 4 were special. I've owned xj Cherokees, wranglers (yj, tj, JK), I've even owned a 79 Cherokee chief, CJ5's, and for less than a week I owned a willys.

The second I want to tell y'all about is my TJ rock crawler. It was my masterpiece of jeeps. It took me 7 years to build, all of my money, time, devotion, and pretty much every favor that was owed to me was used on this thing. It was a 1999 Jeep TJ, I first built it on Unimog axles, I broke them twice and decided they were too rich for my blood and went to 2.5 ton rockwells w/ rear steer. The jeep upon it's completion had a 4 speed transfercase, and tons of aftermarket and custom parts! All fabrication was done by myself and friends. I have lots of videos of this jeep on my youtube chanel, but here is a good taste of what this jeep did: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dybONvSYSo

The third is the jeep I probably did the most offroading in. I bet I wheeled this jeep atleast once a week from when I bought it new in 2007 through 2012 when I rebuilt it for my wife to D/D. I proposed to my wife in this jeep at South Padre Island. I did some really dumb stuff in this jeep, illegal wheeling, jumping in the sand dunes, rock crawling it in places that a Jeep w/ stock axles and 35's shouldn't be and driving through way too deep of water.

All the pics I have on my cpu at work are of it cleaned up after I rebuilt it for my wife to drive.

Last is our latest jeep we just sold August of 2017, to buy our land. We sold our Rock crawler to buy this jeep. This jeep was built for my family to ride in and go offroading in safely and reliably! Bought it new in 2015 and did a mild lift and then built the axles rock solid, chromoly shafts, HD steering, full belly skid plates, air compressor, sleeved axle housings, HD drive shafts.... the jeep was built to not break and leave my family stranded! It looked fairly stock, but it was a tank!

The '48 CJ2-A that I bought in '69. I brush painted it with Rustoleum Navy Gray. My brother took it to Colorado in '70 when I went into the service. He had a V6 out of a '62 Buick Special put into it, and ran it for a few years. I bought a new '74 CJ-5, sold that in '78 to buy the '72 FJ-40 Land Cruiser that my bought when he sold my '48 in '75.

Here is some pics of jeeps we built over the years....

The YJ turned out cool. It was a super simple jeep. Was basically a F150 powertrain on a YJ frame, w/ blazer springs and rock wells. Very simple build.

The red Cherokee became a blue and green Cherokee on rockwells and 46's. It was a beast!

The orange CJ5 was an old ranch jeep we picked up from a friend of mine's. It had a blown I6- so we dropped a 304 in it, did a BTF shackle reversal, spring over, scout D44 axles. It was a slick jeep when it was done.

Yep, I loved that Land Cruiser. It was definitely a step up from the '74 CJ. One of the ones I shoulda kept...the '66 Corvair Corsa, the '70 Nova, the '69 Z-28...
