New from Canada

Hello jeepers. I live in Calgary Alberta. I bought a stock, really nice shape YJ last summer. Did a couple days wheelin then and that was it. From the fall to now I have installed a 4" lift (which gave me a full 6"), 31" MTR's. I fabricated my own on board air system using a York, and an on board welder/generator using an old GM 100 amp alternator. I made an alluminum center console that fits under the center of the dash so I have a place to mount switches, guages, lighter plugs etc, that looks clean.

This last couple months I have spent WAAAY too much money I bought many metal working tools like a welder, pipe bender, cut off saw. I built a custom rear bumper with swing out tire carrier which also accomodates a reciever, trail rack, millitary syle jerry can, axe, shovel, and hi-lift jack. Alot of weight on that baby and it hasn't fallen off heheh

Next was a Warn style front bumper with a 2" pipe bush guard. After that was some side rocker bars and skids. I'm almost ready for the long weekend Just have to mount a 5 lb fire extinisher some how on the roll bar.

Anyway my wife thinks I spend way too much time at night with the Jeep and not enough with her. I told her I spent the last 7 years beautifying her house, now it's my turn heh

Thanks khenderson, actually a friend informed me about geocities so I was going to have a look at that. Thanks for the offer and if I need to take you up on that I'll let you know.

Thanks
