Then & Now

Doesn't matter the color, the number of doors, or what mods you have...Let's do a good ol Then & Now thread.

The day you bought it to how it is today (-ish).

When I took it home...



Today...

It's amazing how much of a difference a lift and wheels/tires make

Here she is the day I bought her in November of 2014. The first tank green Jeep I'd seen.


The following weekend in SE Oklahoma.


A lot of money later. There's a lot you can't see like skids, dual battery setup, on board air, etc. I love this Jeep.
