Just wanted to introduce myself and show my jeep. Im Alden, im from NC just outside of Raleigh near garner, this is my first wrangler and have never owned a jeep before this so I am somewhat stupid when it comes to taking it apart and replacing things. It was originally green as you can see from the pictures and a 94 sahara, other than the obvious outside I have done little to change the inside or any "trail" mods. Im trying to keep it movie accurate but getting myself stuck in some really deep mud(It went all the way to the door the last time it was stuck) has made me want a susp lift and some bigger tires.
I have not done much offroading, I have no winch and know of noone else that has a 4wd to pull me out even though I know of atleast 5 trails around here either on the neuse river or power line trails.
Next things im doing to the jeep would be painting the wheels red and getting a custom tag made for the front. In case someone cant guess the theme im going for the Jurassic Park YJs from the movie. The color isnt exactly right but hey I put only $130 into it and did the sanding/painting in just 2 days. That was about 7 months ago, so its holding up nice. Im still debating a whip antenna and a radio but being a poor college kid I cant afford to have a towtruck "recover" my vehicle from the mud and I sure cant afford a radio either! Before the custom decals were put on I called it the Peppermint/Candy Cane jeep, name as sorta stuck. Once the wheels are painted red later this week and I get the tags on the ouside I will post some more pictures, its been a long project. Then it will be time to move in and change some things on the inside!
I know I should post this in the introductions but I will be doing most of my posting and lurking in the YJ section.
Thanks for taking the time to read!
