I've had this Jeep for 8 months now. Its hard to remember all the stuff I've done to it. Like a well loved Jeep it is being built one nickel at a time. My latest addition is a 2m HAM radio. Its was so easy to install and get licensed. I don't know why I didn't do it sooner. I have tons of pictures of my heep but here are some of my favorites...

This was the second wheeling trip I did when I got the Jeep. It was Bullfrog Trail.

This one was me trying out some netting techniques. I decided to use the smaller style netting. It was a fun project. $5 worth of rope and a half an hour and I had cargo nets.

Rock lights are fun(and $10 at HF)

Hanging a tire..

Back before the hard top. I may never go back..

Thank you. The nets on the sides are $5 worth of rope from Harbor freight. Took about half hour to tie. If you want to come down to Oceanside with some beer I'll show you how to tie them.

Starts out like this...

I tried different sizes to see wich ones I like. I ended us using a net with smaller holes.

Actualy we did wheel togeather once. It was at the MJR meet and greet. The one where you got that profile pic. The first video in my post is from the same day in the same spot. There were 15 or so jeeps that day and I didn't meet half of them but, I was there.

I have a really cheap locker in the front. I call it my heal tow locker. When the front is slipping I use my right foot to hold on the brake while sliding my heal over to the accelerator. So the spinning wheel does not get all the torque. It is less efficient than a LSD but its free!
