Hello all,

I'm new to the Jeep world. My dad was a big follower bag in his day, and I've always wanted to own one of my own. Due to my current profession managing a auto recycling facility I was able to purchase a salvage title 99 Jeep. It was hit hard in the front end right over the rails, so I'm currently putting it back together.

I won't be adding much for suspension mods just yet, but I've already purchased some 31 BFGs with black wagon wheels. It's given it the aggressive stance I'm looking for.

I should be down within the next two weeks and it will be back on the road and on to the trails (where it belongs).

If anyone would like to get together and go on some trail rides let me know. Also, if you need OEM Jeep parts PM me and I'll sell them at a nice price.

Take care

Brandon

I am in Olivet...just got my first jeep; a stock 93. I am looking to try some off-roading, not sure exactly where it is possible in the area. I would love to trail ride with someone as no one I know is a "jeeper"!

I was born in Kalamazoo, lived in Portage and Galesburg. My dad was the track announcer at Galesburg in the early '70's. Also worked for Dick Beebe's racing mag "Mark Times" if you are familiar...
We spent our summers at a cabin on Portage Lake. That was before they turned Kline's Resort into a retirement community.

Small world...good times.
I left Galesburg after 9th grade in '76.
