I bought this LJ brand new in 2004, so where it is now has taken a long time as I try to learn and plan along the way. My goal at this point is a fairly capable general purpose Jeep. It sees general utility usage, crowded city parking garages, long highway drives, lots of snow and ice conditions and scenic mountain 4x4 trails in Colorado. It's not a rock crawler...its more of a general purpose expedition Jeep and its going to go be a jack of all trades, master of none.

Here's the original build thread on JeepForum:
