My new Tonka toy

Hi all,

I recently picked up a 2003 Wrangler X to play with. I am turning it into my big boy Tonka truck I had an '05 Rubicon a while back and my wife has an '11 Mojave edition, and we are big fans of the Wrangler but I never joined a Jeep forum and I still have a LOT to learn so that is why I am here.

I got this rig just to play around with, and do some wheeling as much as I can. It is a toy for me, so I figured I would make it look like one of my favorite toys from my childhood, the Tonka truck. I attached a pic of where it stands now, but there is always more to do.

Looking forward to chatting with you all.

Joe

Thank you. Plans are a little of both. I certainly want to get it out on the trails and my wife and I go to Cape Cod each summer so I'll take it on the beaches up there. And even though I have another daily driver I will be commuting in this as much as I can as well. I just get a kick out of leaving work and seeing everyone else climbing into their luxury sedans and SUVs and I climb up into this thing. I like to be different. :-)
