MY JEEP Hi, I am proud of my "Patriotic Project!" I worked on it all winter and have had a great summer Jeeping at the beach with the family. I have attached some pics for you to check out. I read Off-Road Adventures magazine, and I have seen some projects like mine featured, and I thought perhaps people would get a kick out of my 1989 YJ Wrangler with the Stars and Stripes representation. I bought the Jeep in 2010 in grave condition and with much TLC and budget busting repairs I am thrilled with the result. I intended to paint the Jeep to suit my style (solid color-deep blue), but as I was in the process of restoring it...the custom paint scheme grew on me. The determining factor took place on May 2, 2011, when the U.S. Navy SEALs stormed the compound and engaged Bin Laden and his men in a firefight and killed Bin Laden and all those with him. The hood on my Jeep was now cemented in history. It displays a Bald Eagle carrying in its talons Bin Laden on one side and Saddam Hussein on the other. No way I was going to paint this Jeep now. In fact, I worked hard to bring the paint back to life, and will continue to preserve it as long as I can. It draws a lot of attention, and most people that see it seem to be as proud of our country as am I. Thanks in advance for reading.

I started working on it in my free time three years ago. It has a 4" Tuff Country lift, on 36" TSL radial Swampers, and Mickey Thompson Classic II wheels. I haven't taken it into any serious holes or pits yet, since I'm still ironing out a few bugs. The truck pulls sloppy grain wagons, hauls hay loads, and moves tractors for our family farm. Joe G. ANDI'S FREE SPIRIT SPORT My name is Andi, born and raised in Hungary, now living in Las Vegas. I bought this '06 Wrangler Sport three years ago, with the lift-kit and Mud Terrain tires already on, installed by 4 Wheel Parts here, in Las Vegas. I had previously owned an '02 Wrangler Sport, I always had the love for this great American car! First time I saw Linda Hamilton driving one in Terminator, I fell in love! I call it the "doggy wagon," I have two large dogs and we often go off-roading together! It runs great, never lets me down. I enjoy this car to the fullest. I love the sound of the engine. I only have a soft top, so I feel free wherever I go, with the wind breezing through the entire car. My friends think I'm crazy not having the back or the back-side windows on, regardless of the summer heat or the winter cold. Great car, hope to keep it until I die (or it dies). p
