Test run for the new rig...

Testing out my new jeep...well, not new, but newly built. Seems to be working quite well.

The mud test did not go as well as the rock test...

had to get a tug.







It was fun anyway. Until I had to wash it.

99% of what we do is tame, but once in a while we go for some more challenging lines. That waterfall has stumped me several times before, and I just had to try it again...made it up easily this time. Never even slipped a tire.

Well it started life as an 89 YJ and looked like this:



Now it has:

4.0L fuel injected motor
AW4 automatic trans
231 transfer case
Corporate 10.5 full floating rear axle
dana 44 front axle

It has been cut, stretched, upgraded, and modified heavily. I probably have 1000 hours of working on this rig in the last year and a half. Finally getting it out of the shop and having some fun with it is a good feeling. I think every piece of this jeep has been either replaced, modified, or upgraded since I started working on it.
