Lot 'o h/d stuff build by me: shock axle-mounting brackets f&r, front shackles, U-bolt flip brackets f&r, sway bar disconnects and mounting brackets, f&r air-tank 'rock-crusher' bumpers w/built-in rear receiver hitch, heavy-duty Rubicon rack w/twin gas can mounts, and wheel wells enlarged enough to fit the future 35's thanks to the TJ fender flares. And don't forget the bumper-blender/spare starter!

Current / Future Projects: Now that I'm in the mud, no more plans for the 4to1 transfer case, but 35X12.5 muds would be good!  Converting to a rear cv/driveshaft sounds better and better. Still working on a custom-built full rollcage - don't think I'll ever finish it. Also, gotta fab up an aluminum far shroud. Since my Jacobs unit is flakey, I eventually want to go with the HEI or Ford TFI distributor conversion too. The paint job keeps falling back in priority...

New trails: the stuff up at Trolhaugen, WI, plus Attica, IN
