My girls slow build

Just figured I could post this because she doesn't have an account and we're building our jeeps together.

Her jeep is a 1999 2.5l auto trans

Here's a pic of her jeep the day she bought it



It is deep amethyst with a gray interior.

It came with a hardtop and full steel doors and a bestop supertop. It was some old mans weekend driver, he put the side steps on it so he could get in.

We haven't done very many mods to it..
..yet

I convinced her to let me take the milk jugs off the front when we put the KCs on it.



And since then we've installed a shallow box Rockford Fosgate subwoofer with a Panasonic amp and a Kenwood head unit and we also replaced the dash and soundbar speakers with Polk audio I don't have a picture of that tho

Updates to come

Got the fender back from the shop today color is perfect. Here's what the rust looks like incase anyone is curious





It wasn't a hole until I decided to start digging... Good thing the new one is going on soon.

Are you gonna lift it and make it a monster. Or is it purely a restoration job? Looks like a fun starter!

So trail gear sent us a YJ roll cage instead of the rock sliders so we had to ship it back and are now waiting on rock sliders... Again...

Also picked up an 8ft pop up camper to tow around with the jeep. It's a fixer upper but $450 was a good deal.

Nice Jeep! Mind saying what you roughly paid and how many miles? Daughter is looking for a similar rig.

$7000 was the negotiated price the guy was asking $9500 for it. It had 73K on it when it was purchased
