Smile Howdy from SW Washington

Howdy - Was a Sammy owner for a few years and after a ton of fun and quite a bit of work on it I decided to sell it and move up to a Jeep. Was looking for a while then in May of this year bought a Bright Yellow 2000 TJ Sport. The person who originally built it did a pretty great job and it is pretty stacked. Never would have thought I would have a bright yellow vehicle but been OWNING the yellow ...

I have recently put a new radiator, water pump, and caliper on it but all been pretty easy thanks to the layout of the Jeep. I also painted the fenders (they were awful gray) and touched up the paint. It has a ding in the front that was rusting that I sanded and quick primed but after bow season I am going to do it right and paint it. I also bought a hard top (which I have to now rewire because it is a 2004) for the upcoming rainy 9 months that we have in the Pacific NW.

Its my daily driver and moving up from the less than 50HP of the zuk to the straight 6 with magnaflo and cold-air-intake + K&N has been awesome.

Looking to do some wheeling out here in Oregon/Washington once I get some time after hunting season. It will be my hunting rig and hopefully on the nice rear cargo rack I will get to transport a trophy home.

Anyways here are a few picts (assuming I have the ability to post with my rep of 0).
