Hi all. I'm having a lot of fun building this Jeep and trying to do so on a budget - J.E.E.P = Just Empty Every Pocket is RIGHT! I started in 2018 with mods and have a lot more I want to do.
What's the one mod you can't live without? A fun one that I did was using the stock rear bumper as a water tank and adding an RV water pump for on board pressurized water.

A list of my current build is below.

Day 1 - Off the lot.
