The jeep is beautiful and runs like a champ. Below I will put all the attachments and everything about the jeep.

Please tell me more about all the mods!

Well i don't really know much, I bought this one because i got it for a reasonable price and the inside and outside of the jeep is in amazing shape! The inside looks brand new and i have always wanted a jeep so why not get one with everything on it instead of getting a stock one and doing stuff to it later. The only thing i really know about it is there's a total of a 3 inch lift and there are skid plates all along the bottom he showed me a bunch of stuff on it and kind of told me about it, i just would like to know more so i figure this is the place to ask more about the jeep. Thanks

Welcome to the forum Jarod I trust he told you about the wave as well... Spend some time reading here and you'll learn a lot about the mods done to your new love... The skids are for protection, obviously and most the other stuff it to beef it up offroad as well. It sounds like he did things pretty well. If you search the tech forums you'll find tons of info about the items he installed.

Nice Jeep! Now you need to find some local Jeepers to follow around and gain some skills. There are many on here from KS. Some from around McConnell Air Force Base. Shoot if you see someone sitting in a Jeep in a parking lot stop and ask them about their Jeep won't be long till your talking about yours and your off to the races. lol The one thing about Jeepers is we talk to each other because no one else knows what a locker, d35, or transfer case is, they just think we're nuts.
