This is Princess Creampuff, our '95 Grand Cherokee (ZJ)4.0. My boyfriend drives it, but technically it is "ours". Lots of mods: Ford 8.8 rear axle with Detroit locker, 4.88 gearing, 6 inch RC longarm, RockHard roll cage, Nate's4x4 front bumper, 33 inch TSL's (measure more like 34), KC lights, hood fan, and probably a whole pile of stuff I can't think of right now.

And this is the one that started it all, a '52 Willys CJ3a, almost totally stock. This is one that my boyfriend worked on in high school shop class back in the 90's. it moved around with the shop teacher to two other states before eventually being entrusted to us in 2008. Fun little Jeep, easy to tinker on and it runs like a top.
Seen here with MrToad my old '03 TJ Rubicon.

Speaking of Toadie... 2003 Rubi with 4 inch RC longarm, 1.25 inch body lift, Poison Spyder roll cage, homemade front and rear bumpers, 33 inch tires, Novak shifter kit, Explorer engine fan, and Corbeau seats. I sold Toadie to my father-in-law about a year ago. I miss this Jeep terribly, but I get to visit regularly, so that makes me feel better.

And then there's Elmo the LJ. He has his own thread here, so y'all can check that out on your own ;)
Here he is with MrToad:

First Jeep a 2000 TJ sport.
Did some work to it bringing it back to life as the po was a piece of work
It needed some TLC. But a good Jeep.

Found some hidden frame damage a few months into it....Sold it and broke even. Full disclosure to new buyer.

My first Jeep. Sold him about 5 years ago. He was Jeepforum.com's Grand Cherokee of the year in 2009. 01 WJ Limited with RockKrawler 4.5" long arm kit. Triangulated rear uppers, 33s, Aussie locker in the back and the factory LSD up front. Iceland Front Bumper and Sliders. The front bumper was actually the first one and I helped Iceland design it and promote it before the owner ran the company into the ground.

My former Jeep was a '95 YJ Wrangler. Loved that Jeep. It was one year old when I bought it and over the years it turned into this...


It was a 4.0, ax-15, with mid 70's f-150 full width, front Dana 44 and rear 9", 4.88's and Front and rear Detroit lockers. Drove that thing across the country at one point, loved it!
