figured id just give a quick into here, new to the jeep thing. i have normally been more of car person but things have changed with the business/building a house so i decided to get something bigger and 4wd, plus i have always wanted a jeep.
little back story would be helpful i guess, before buying this 2010 wrangler i have only ever owned VW's (still a VW person through and through, diesel specifically). i run a full time powder coating/ceramic coating business as well as working full time as a UNIX Sys Admin.
a few of my past cars/proejcts
91 wolfsburg jetta diesel (big turbo)
81 diesel caddy (ex canadian military truck, was used on an air force base all original
02 big turbo jetta
polaris rzr on tracks
91 etienne aigner cabby (only 752 of these were made in the world, only 399 came to the us) this is receiving a built carbed 16v 2.0 with a completely shaved bay
now the jeep, bought it bone stock with 18k miles on it, hard top, a/c, 6 speed. will be staying fairly stock for a while, bigger tires will come when these current ones need to be replaced (its my daily driver so nothing crazy for now), for now most of the mods i will be making will be interior mods getting things set up more for my liking. rear seats are coming out and ill be adding in a false floor with storage available under it but mostly so i can bolt my tool box down, and my other gear without ruining the body.
things that will be happening right off: ill be pulling off the muffler and ill be ceramic coating it so i dont have to see the ugly silver one. everything on the underside that can come off fairly easy without much work will have the paint stripped and ill powder coat them a super durable flat black (i hate rust and i do this to everything i own). ill be building and welding up and over head storage solution for the front since it really lacks in that area. i have some custom pins being machined by a friend so i can run some tiny mirrors with my doors off (not a fan of the threaded rod style). oh and ill likely be powder coating the wheels (have not decided on a color yet but it will be something plain, may do a custom blend. thats really it for the right now aside from some small interior mods since the cabby is my main focus and i severely lack free time.
its super clean inside and out, even the underside. i have a feeling it was someones weekend top off toy.
so yeah, :wave:
