You might have seen me in the OBX this weekend, figured I'd sign up and see whats going on. Just bought this Jeep, 84 CJ7, no I did not do the work myself, yes I will do plenty to it in the future, get over it, it's cheaper to buy instead of build and there is stuff done to it that I cannot do/do not trust myself to do like the cage. Short list of mods: 95 YJ tub, 8 point cage, rock sliders, tube fenders, 4" RE lift, 4.56 gears, one piece rear shafts, CV rear driveshaft, 10K Winch. Axles are stock AMC20/D30 :yuck: Had a TJ before this but the ex kept it...

Hi,
Im Mike. Im 27 years old, and have been working on vehicles my whole life. Ive been in the military since 99. I just recently bought myself a 96 XJ country, and I love it. Ive got a project jeep in FL, a 46 CJ2A which is some serious need of a resto job, but thats a project Im saving for when I have a house with a garage. I dont have any major mods to my jeep yet, as most of my extra cash has been going to fixing the small things Ive been finding wrong or annoying on the xj, but as everything, it is a work in progress, with a plan of action to get it done. Im all up for some old school wrenching parties, and some off-road time!

I'm Yeti, you all met me at the Trail Clean-up in GWNF.
Was in the Marines 93-99.

I wheel a 1979 Wagoneer currently, at the cleanup I had "Big D" with me (F350).

Look forward to seeing you all again out there.
