1994 Jeep Wrangler YJ 4 cylinder 2.5 ltr.
Front / rear fenders removed for 33's, working on replacing the rear with some 6-7" flairs.
Just replaced the old Bestop black roof with a Rugged Ridge Spice roof. Off-sets the camo really well.
Added some running bars for the wife's comfort getting in and out.
Added the 5000' Smittybilt towbar up front so it can be used as a dinghy attached to a 24' RV. The curb weight and size of the YJ fits really well with the RV and puts me right at 40' overall. Tracks like a champ down the highway.
One of the things we like the best about it is the camo paint job. Although we live down here in Redneckville (SC), we have never seen another one like it, and the waves from other Jeepers just adds to it all.

We purchased this '95 YJ 2.5L 5-speed last July as a father/ son project. My two sons and I are in the process of rebuilding it so that the oldest can drive it when he turns 16.

My favorite memory so far with this Jeep is how much my wife enjoyed driving it last summer. She liked it so much, we bought her a '12 JKR in August! Of course, the current build process is creating wonderful memories with the boys in the garage.

Not modifications yet other than stripping it to the bare frame.

My first post. So glad to be a part of this community.
This is my 2008 Rubicon Green Machine, now known as "Crocodile" DUNJEEP. I bought this Jeep because of the memory of my best friend, who took this city boy out in the woods on some ATV's (his he called the Green Machine) for the first time in my life and helped me fall in love with being off-road. He wore snakeskin boots nearly every day I knew him, but his nickname was Crocodile. A month ago, my mother-in-law sent me a Cricut (a vinyl cutting machine) and so I set out to make this design a reality. 25 hours later, what you see is what you get. All of this was done a foot and half sheets at a time, pieced together like a puzzle from a design I created over a year ago. David was my best friend and I am honored to drive this around every day, knowing it would make him smile. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Meet my 2018 Golden Eagle. I purchased it used last year with only 2400 miles. Since purchasing I have added 3 1/2 inch MC Game Changer, 1 ton OCD Aluminum drag link and tie rod, 17 inch Dirty Life wheels, 37 inch Milestar Patagonia’s, Poison Spider front bumper, 8000 Warn winch, Artec rear bumper, Iron Cross fenders, 50 inch KC lightbar. Vector e-bar, 67 design mounts, Midland CB and GMRS radios, and an ARB Zero 73qt Fridge/freezer. Finally after 5 1/2 months of waiting my Dynatrac Prorock 44 and Prorock 60 have arrived and will be installed soon, along with my front and rear anti rocks, Artec aluminum skid, Genright aluminum sliders with rash guards, Nitto Mud Grapplers and finally, the ******* Ram steering assist. As well as all the additions, I’ve added 17,000 miles, and a fair amount of that is off road. She’s been on her side once... and hopefully not again.

I am new here as of today, hoping that I did not do anything wrong in my post. If so, let me know and I’ll do my best to correct it in the future. Thanks for having me, and if you are in any of the western states let me know as I am coming out for a month, maybe more starting at the end of July.

Best thing about my Jeep, is that I can go anywhere and do anything I feel like at any time. It’s built for anything, and it’s boosted!

So, out of curiosity, what would something comparable cost me? lol
[/QUOTE]

Are you asking me? If so, not entirely sure, but it heavily depends on if you have shops help with work (Which I don’t weld yet, so I did). I can’t really say accurately as I dot keep receipts and all that. Ballpark, figure, $65k for the Jeep, $8000 for the supercharger and all that went into that and tune installed myself, $8500 for suspension, over $20k for the current axle build and install (replaced built D44s), $1400 per wheel/tire (I’ve had 4 different sets of wheels & tires) $600 per seat, , about $4-5k in KC lights, couple grand in various body pieces, a grand for bed liner in/out, and a few grand here and there for other things I’ve gone through on the Jeep.
