Autowerks of Northbrook, IL - 1999 Jeep TJ Custom Rebuild

I recently had my 1999 Jeep completely rebuilt by an outstanding shop in Northbrook, IL called Autowerks. They took my rather sad looking TJ that had been sitting in a garage for the last few years and turned it into a truly one of a kind Jeep. Anyway, if any of you are looking for a shop to do any sort of mods or paint, check these guys out. They are a full service shop. They do paint, upholstery, electrical, audio, lifts... you name it, they do it - and all in house. I've met very few people who are as passionate about their work as these guys are. I would never even think about going elsewhere for future needs. Hope you enjoy the photos I have included in the link below. Take care.

Looks pretty cool, I've seen the shop before but had never seen work that comes out of it. You spent some money on this thing and it shows, only thing that stands out to me is the rear tire clearance with the rock sliders/body.

Do you have pics of it off road yet?

Wow, I checked out your facebook photo's and it looks like you've turned out a few cool Jeep projects. Does that red LJ actually have a Viper V10 in it?

Some of the pics look like you were at "Another Level" car show in Palatine/Arlington Heights area, I've probably walked by you a dozen times and never knew it. I need to stop and check out what you guys got going on over there!
