    I am generally not a fan of tearing up an old Jeep to make it something it wasn't - mainly because most times it looks like Bubba, Junior and LeRoy started a job under the shade tree and after a case or two of Miller Light decided things were good enough.

    "SMEAR SOME BONDO ON IT, PAINT IT WITH A RATTLE CAN AND LET'S GO FIND THE GURLS."


    Not so here - it's grown into something a LOT more than it started out.

    Fan -Damn-Tastic job....

    Thank you sir. I plan to put the original trim down side, keep front grill original. Basically no change in bidy lines outside me relocating rear fenders.

    Have a history of some off-beat designs. Couple sitting garage from days past :-)

    Appreciate the feedback!!

    I was thinking some 24's so you could strap on some Mickey Thompson Baja Pro XS 21/58-24LT's! The 58" diameter should give you adequate ground clearance.

    I just so happen to have a set of 4 BF Goodrich All Terrain 385 X 17" with only 20 miles on them. They came from my last duty station, and I dismounted them myself. They are packed in grease for the run flat rib, that will need to be pressure washed out. The tires were on a Flyer GMV, and some big wigs came for a tour and a demo ride. The driver gave them a better ride then anything at Six Flags on the asphalt skid pad. They are a bigger than what I want to shoe our wagon project, but the price was right. The wheels were true bead locks, so the tires weren't stretched at all. If you are interested, drop me a line.

    Old School my A#@! That bad boy is an sleeper if I ever saw one. In my "Old School" we didn't have that kind of technology that's for sure! What is trying to hide under the hood, is a far cry from the original motor.
