Tell us the story behind your ride. What made you pick this particular one? Where did you find it? I found this Jeep by accident. I went to a used car lot to look at some SUV's.  When I had gotten there the cars I wanted to look at had sold.  I was walking around seeing if there was anything there I was interested in when I saw this parked in the corner. 

 Describe the modifications you've made. Where did you start, what’s the most recent mod and what motivated it? When I first got this Wrangler it was covered in chrome.  I didn't like the chrome, and wanted a mean and agressive looking car. I want to try to keep it all black for now.

 Of all the mods you’ve made, which do you think offers the biggest bang for the buck? Gears. Re-gearing made this drive like a completely new car. The 3.8 is under powered. Changing to 4.88 gearing makes it so much easier to drive. 

 How did you go about selecting the specific parts for this build? Any installation tips to share?
