Looking Good!

For a second i thought you were going with a FLAT BLACK and if so, I would of said "Looking freakin awesome, i'm so jealous. I love the flat black look".

So, since its shiney black, I'm going to stay with Looking Good!

Keep us updated on the progress of the build!

I painted this YJ back in February and never posted up pics after re-assembly. I moved the pics so the links were lost but here is one of the pics when it was in paint...


The owner's sole purpose for this YJ is for hunting/safari's. We cut the rear cage, installed a tuffy box, reinforced the lid and bolted a mastercraft bench/shooting perch on top. We changed out the 37's for 33's and gave it a red and black theme. Had my boat upholstery guy make the rollbar padding and put in red & black front seats and steering wheel. This is his shooting vehicle and I already delivered to him another hunting buggy, camo wrapped, with roof rack and rear rack for carrying his kills. He is a big hunter!

Here are a few crappy pics but you get the idea..

I guess if the owner ever get's sick of it as a hunting vehicle the Jeep could be used for parades!!

I don't know that I could just beat that thing up in the woods though! But then again if this the second one you have done for him, he is not too worried about money and beating it up.....lol

You have no idea....I have three of his vehicles at my shop right now. Other two being worked on, he scratched the flare on his 2009 Hummer and has a dent in his 2009 Caddy CTS.

Then there is the 2010 Harley Super Duty with custom paint, his 2008 Porsche Turbo that I color matched the lower valances and replaced the back window after a girl threw a brick at it, a Murano, a black 2008 Saleen Mustang, a white Cobra Mustang, Pontiac G8, his white F250 on some 5 feet of lift and the list goes on.

And then there are the Harley's!!!

He is in a different world! Scratching the '94 YJ in the woods is not really a concern for him.

The way you drive you need to add an extra set of controls and a steering wheel so you can sit back there and just your head is above the water/mud!!

That would be the Spirit World. As in, Native American, Casino, SUPER FAT paycheck every week world.

The top guys get a check each WEEK that surpasses what 75% of Americans make in a year.

If you find a way in let me know!!
