ABOUT ME
Mechanic since 8 yrs old. Every time I try to get out of wrenchin' I get sucked back in. I've learned it's best you stay on your intended path. Blessed are those that know their way.

JEEP HISTORY
I've always been drawn to the older Jeeps.
Mostly I think because they're nearly all
metal construction and I like that. Don't
want my body bouncing off any plastic or
rubber parts in the event of a wreck.
Picked up my 78' CJ5 in Fall 2010 and
started the mods. Went from one mod to
the next haven't stopped. Learned how to
weld/fabricate along the way. It WAS
finally to a point where I could run all
the trails I want to and just concentrate
on having fun and then I decided to tear
it all back apart again further than I've
ever done. All I wanted to do was put the
rear seat back in and I decided to cut it
in half. Seems logical, to me.
