Tell us the story behind your ride. What made you pick this particular one? Where did you find it? ---After riding in a friend's jeep, I was sold. This was going to be the first car I really loved -- and still miss to this day. Describe the modifications you've made. Where did you start,  what’s the most recent mod and what motivated it? ---I started off with just a basic intake, just to get a little more sound out of the engine. Not long after, I ordered a 2" spacer lift, new shocks, bigger tires, and an exhaust for it. Then I got into welding and made my own back bumper. Of all the mods you’ve made, which do you think offers the biggest bang for the buck? ---The best thing to do was just basic maintenance. Power and MPG went up just with the basics. Beyond that, a lift and tires is the best way to get off the beaten path. What was the biggest challenge with this build? ---The hardest part for me was learning to work on cars for the first time. Nobody in my family had any mechanical know-how, so everything was self taught with the help of forums and YouTube.
