dave@rokmen They are 37's.

Not sure what front bumper will be in the works. For now I think the budget is being built up uust for Round 2 - a new bumper will probably come after that as I know the owner would like us to do some work in the back too, but it will have to wait until the winter.

KBR97 Very nice...gives me inspiration for my own red 97. I'm liking the rear corners alot.

What are you doing with the grille hoop/stinger bumper? Trashing it for something else or keeping it?

Ageless Stranger That looks really nice Dave, you guys do awesome work.

dave@rokmen She's through Step 1 of Re-hab... The owner is very happy as many nagging items are resolved, and she's much lower than when she came in. Handling and predicatability are much improved.

From here - we'll wait to see her for Step 2 in the fall, when we'll put some time into tuning the suspension. We'll bring her down a little more, limber her up, and work on her core balance so to speak...

Paris - Rescuing a Jeep from itself...

Paris is a fitting name for a jeep entering "Rokmen Rehab".

It has had significant money and time spent modifying it - going from one bolt on shop to another. But hanging around with the wrong crowd will only get you into trouble.

Paris is a 97 TJ Wrangler that has has been in and out of many of the Bolt-On off road shops is Colorado. Leaving each shop with more problems than it went in with and a whole lot of money exchanging hands. Poor perofrmance, so much invested time and money - just becomes frustrating for many owners who feel like they've reached the end of the line.

This is the last stop for Paris - a last chance for a Jeep Rescue to occur. It's our job to help clean Paris up, and bring her to the performance levels Rokmen is known for - and bring the owner and vehicle closer together again.

We do have some limitations to work with - budget, time frame, previously installed parts and modifications that just can't be reversed right now. So we'll do our best to work within parameters and get the most improvements we can.

While at Rokmen Rehab - it will go through a 2 step program to return it to the vehicle and performance it truly can be. Hopefully it will be enough to re-spark the relationship between Paris and her Owner - It's like Jeep counseling, and happens more often than you would think.

First Step(In Progress) - we'll fix some of the nagging problems on paris, and reduce it's 7+ inches of Height to 4.5" - while preparing it for stage 2.

Second Step(Scheduled this Fall) - we'll make some more modifcaitons to the suspension to improve the geometry handling and ride quality.

Here is how Paris arrived - She's a 20 footer...


And here is an in process picture -
