This jeep has quite the story. It took quite a few years to build, but it's getting there. Many modifications, a lot of money spent mostly because I always hire for the jobs to be done on it. Basically everything has been either changed or modified on it.
I bought the Jeep in 1996 stock, it was brush painted red at the time of purchase. My God. That brings memories by itself. No need to go too much in details, the pictures will basically speak for themselves. I stopped counting lift inches after 10! I believe the rig has about 18 inches of lift, or very close to it by now. It's quite the pain to store indoors as it stands over 8 feet tall with the off road lights. The ride sits on 49" Irok tires on 16.5 rims. Nice. very nice.
I had my MONSTER Jeep built for shows and parades, special events, competitions, weddings etc...
Yes. Don't build your own. It's way too costly. Buy it already modified. Unless cash flows out of your ears.
