    I know I know a lot of guys on here don't like jeeps but I have always

    wanted one as a weekend toy to play around with. Plus I have a

    PreRunner so it will be fun to have a 4x4 that isn't my daily driver.

    Anyway my father and I bought the jeep this past weekend. It is a 1995

    Jeep YJ Wrangler with only 61000 miles. Got it from an old man who just

    used it to get around his ranch. Good in line 4 motor but the outside

    needs a little love. It is also completely stock other than the wheels and

    tires so it will be fun to start building it up. Hope yall enjoy the build. :D

    And on to the pics.

    Just some small things. This weekend we got some new wheels and tires for the jeep. We went with Unique 15x8 black wheels wrapped in 31x10.5x15 Falken A/T. Waiting on the new center caps to come in so just put the old ones back on for now. Also put a new belt on it and drove it around pretty much all weekend. Will be changing all the fluids this week and just ordered new front seats last night:cool:

    Sorry kinda crappy pics:eek:
