Hey guys, Names Kevin and am in north eastern Illinois. A few months ago I acquired a 01 TJ wih motor knock for a steal and was going to build it then decided I didn't want to spend the money and sold it to a guy that worked for me on a payment plan. well several months later with still less than half the money paid the sale is off and I decided to build it. I have background with XJ's and samurais and work for a offroad shop (kinda, another story for another day lol) and a metal manufacturing shop that I run the welding and fab department. That being said my plan is to get the jeep in the air, out some bigger meats and armor on aand wheel it this year. I intend on bulding as much as possible myself and tearing the rig down next winter and get things installed... unless I get impatient. Look forward to talking, meeting, helping and receiving help from all of you!
