History
worked at chrysler jeep dealer and my ram truck broke down. no help from employer so i sold it for pennies on the dollar. had enough for this old beaten jeep that was on its way to the junk yard.
WOW, it was a diamond in the rough. lots of cleaning, leak repairs, and a few mods.... PRESTO!!! JEEPZILLA WAS BORN!!!

Modifications

Drivetrain
added a luggage rack i got on clearance at tractor supply for $30. painted it with some rhino liner type paint...
Interior
next i added a set of 5 17x9" black steely's wrapped with a set of new factory rubicon BFG A/T"s some customer gave me after putting on the factory lift kit and wheels he bought. i sold the factory rims to pay for my lift kit!!! LOL... thanks rich customer guy!!!!!
Exterior
Rough Country 4.5 lift kit with homemade 2 inch transfer case spacers,(instead of the 1" they give you.) that killed the rear drivetrain noise caused by the steep pinion angle... Added a 1" lift block to the rear to level it out. when done actual lift was nearly 6".... WOW! only cost 550 dollars... THANKS R/C....
Audio
overhauled the engine and i keeps it factory and original.... so fresh and so clean!!!!
Suspension
so fresh and so clean!!! i kept it original as well. i installed the spare tire carrier in the back. along with a cb radio. still use the factory keyless entry that looks like a little security camera dome that's mounted in the ceiling.......
Wheel and Tire
wow, this is my forte... rewired all the electrical components, ie door locks, power windows, etc. Then i did my thang by putting in my system. An alpine cd player, memphis component speakers in the front and rear. monster cables supplying the juice to the rear for my memphis crossover and memphis belle amps which pounded my two 12" phenoix gold subs,
