hard to call it something other than that since its a willys addition and it says it on the side of my jeep but here is from about day one when i bought it 4 years ago

bone stock it was a good learning experience
Image

threw on some 31" mastercraft at's
Image

i used to break the number one rule alot and wheeled alone so i through on an xrc8 winch
Image

then i threw on a 2" lift suspension that i did all by myself with absolute zero knowledge of cars other than oil and break changes
Image

well 2 inches wasnt enough so it got a 2" body lift and still with 31" it looked goofy as hell with that setup but still fun
Image

saved all my pennies and bought some brand new 33" bfg mud terrains and pro comp soft 8's
Image

flexin it out at odaniel
Image

decided i wanted more flex so i cut the flares off
Image

then the 4" rough country short arm kit went in
Image

this hunk a junk came out
Image

and this big bastard went in
Image

and this is how it is today
Image

its weird going through the older pics and remembering how inexperienced i was, not that im a pro today but i've learned so much since day one

that picture about putting 31" at's is in slade kentucky i would love to go back but when i think about the trails we did i crawled them very slow, today i would have flown through them and probably wouldnt worry at all but back then i was scared everytime the wheel popped off the ground just a little bit
