    Intro. Stock or not post 'em up!

    I was islandtrooper in the other place.
    Was a bit active a decade ago then just lurked and watch the shit show happen.
    Happy to be here!

    I have a 2000 TJ as my daily driver. Yes the light bar is gehy and will be replaced by a winch soon.
    Waiting for a clutch master cylinder to get my pile back on the road.
    In the mean time I can fix the leaking rear pinion, change a u-joint or six and clear up some surface rust.

    Searching before posting will reduce dumb ass questions from you, but may not stop dumb ass responses from me.

    Not much has changed on mine for probably 6 years or so, I just drive it around and hit light trails and go camping in it every now and then now, haven't really taken it on any real trails since I moved a few years ago. It's a fun vehicle though, works really well. about 260k miles on it, and I've driven it across the country several times.

    2006 Rubicon, 6 speed manual, 35s, skid plates, rubicon 4:1 transfer case and lockers, lockout hubs, champion beadlocks and superior axle shafts. It goes anywhere I'm capable of driving. I'm not messing with it anymore, I've moved on to other projects. But still enjoy driving it around. :-)

      Bought the Jeep and 4 days later found out my now ex-wife was pregnant with our younger son. Third photo is teaching him to drive in it about 4 years ago. Now it’s his DD.

ID:	5850 I picked up this 2003 TJ back in March right before everything went to shit with the corona virus. I haven't done any wheeling yet still waiting on the DMV to reopen I did some minor maintenance oil change and air filter , front and rear pinions seals fluid change new diff cover bolts , new trans pan , filter and fluid changed, new rear sway bar links and bushings, replaced front and rear bump stops, new muffler and turn down tip, greased everything, Had a few stripped nut serts ( rivnuts) when a dropped the trans cross member so I picked up a rivnut squezzer on ebay came with a assortment of metric rivnuts for around $50 worked really good. I 'm kinda behind on my spring projects as soon as I get my bike ready for this summer new rubber showed up today. I plan on taking the jeep up north for some trail rides nothing hardcore just to get out of town for the weekend.

            My 2004 Rubicon...



            I put this thing together because my rock crawler is sitting and rotting in the desert. This is primarily a camping/adventure rig for easier trails like the Rubicon.

              Just found this site from another that I just joined and found out it was a disaster. LOL I know I will catch a lot of flack, but here is my 99 TJ. Just put a lift on it. Yes, I like purple. Oh, my name is Kim and I am in Sacramento.

                            Hers my TJ, I had to sue my step mom after my dad died to get it, somehow he "changed" his mind about me having the jeep 2 weeks before his death, bitch is a witch. Its been neglected by 2 Toyotas in the 6 years I've had it. Sold the one next to it this past winter so the jeep is going to get some love finally.

                              Here is my work in process. It’s a 98 TJ with an 03 LQ4, 2wd 4L80E, atlas, 8.8 and a highly polished 30. Axles are temporary for now.
