Test Run Pics











A little Jeep with a failed fuel pump...needed a pull out of the valley. I did not even know they were there even on the hills heading out.

Talking

This is the second cage, the first was ok but I like this one better, higher and tighter to the roofline, the seats are tied to the cage, a new dash because the original was in the way for the cage.

Lots of work doing an interior cage...next time it's chop top time

There is a lot more modifications in the future including lowering the rear floor deck 4", 4 link rear suspension, moving the front axle forward to clear 44 TSL's, 205 and Klune-V.

I guess I need to get busy.
