    My Jeep is getting beat to crap after all the crazy things I've done to it. It is no longer fun to drive on a daily basis. I cannot get the doors on any more because the tub is bent and dented, I can't get the top on any more, the whole rig pulls to the left because the frame is bent, it's too big for my wife and kids to jump into easily, the tires cost about $450.00 each so I don't want to wear them out. Basically, it's just a terrible rig to drive around on the streets any more. So, I'm retiring it to rock crawling duties only.

    So now the fun begins...
    I am shopping for a new Jeep to use as a family rig and a daily driver. I am going to get a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (4 door) and do a mild build-up on it. I don't want to build it too big or capable because then I'd be tempted to take it on the harder trails. But I love to modify Jeeps, so a little bit of work will go into it just to make it nice. I'm thinking of a mild lift with 35 inch tires, plus a few other goodies to make it trail worthy like a winch, bumpers, skid plates, lockers, gears, and 4:1 transfer case. This is going to be a fun project and the kids are looking forward to having a comfortable Jeep to get around in again.

    Granted, we are on opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of what we do with our vehicles, but its cool to see someone else who wrenches on and tears apart a perfectly good vehicle .

    I bought my '99 vette with 22,500 on the clock 3 months ago. I already tore it down so only the engine block was in the car. Replaced heads, headers, intake manifold and gained 72 horsepower to the wheels. I am looking at a new camshaft now and will need to do a clutch too.

    It's hard to get others to understand why we modify perfectly good vehicles...especially the wives

    Ya, you like the powertrain mods and I like the suspension and axle mods. You like to go fast and I like to go super-slow. But we have the same intensions; making our vehicles bad-ass.

    She gives me so much shit for it LOL. In some ways, she is right, its a relatively stupid hobby. Very expensive and you get used to the power quick anyway and you always want more.

    She is going away for 3 weeks to Brazil soon...I am taking full advantage and doing my cam and clutch swap during that time .

    Same with my hobby. For instance, you get very used to the new "big" tires and they start looking small. Even on my old Jeep, I have worked my way up to 38s and they already look small. Now I'm thinking about 42s.

    Same thing with the trails. I started out driving on dirt roads, then moved up to actual trails, then moved up to hard trails, and now I have to have "extreme" trails to get my kicks. Takes a huge toll on the rigs though. I have probably dumped over $60,000.00 in extra parts in my old Jeep - lol

    The funny thing is, I've could have bought a super nice car like a mercedes or jag for the ammount of money I have in my Jeep. Most people that look at it will say it's a peice of crap. But those who know will see all the money dumped into it.

    Sorry to hear your jeep isn't working out for you anymore, but good luck with the new jeep build up. I'm also into cars so I know exactly where your coming from.

    A few guys at the department are selling their jeeps, one is an 08 build up for crawling, the other is an old 78' CJ built for mud, I want that one so bad, only asking like 6 for it, would be a steal with all the mods he's got on it. I enjoy my rig, but 8500lbs is too damn heavy to go crazy in the mud with. It's made some really good trips in deep mud in 4x4 with no problems, and handles steep climbs easily with the V10 engine and all the torque is puts out. I want bigger tires, and the wife agrees, so when it comes time to replace the all terrains it's got on it now, grapplers are going on.

    The Jeep wrangler is awesome - I've had two of 'em, both were great to drive year round. The new ones are impressive, haven't even seen the 2012's yet.

    You would absolutely love the Jeep store we have here in town, you would be like a kid in a candy store, lol.

    My Jeep is great for a dedicated trail rig, just not very good for hauling others any more. It will be fun to have one Jeep for the trails and another Jeep for driving everywhere else.

    Jeeps are just so iconic and fun to drive. That sounds like a pretty good deal on the CJ if you are into mud. Definitely need a lot of horsepower and big tires for mud.

    The internet is my new Jeep store. Honestly, my old Jeep is so customized that I can't buy anything from stores any more. Most of the parts are Ford and Chevy now. But when I add the second (new) Jeep I'll be back into buying the over the counter products again. Can't wait.

    Oh, I'm still keeping the old Jeep, it will just be a dedicated trail rig.

    Update

    Weight = 223.4 lbs
    Arms = 17-1/8 inches

    Sorry for the update being a day late, I was busy and forgot to weigh-in yesterday. This has been a weird week for the diet because of the schedule and traveling. It has forced me to eat out more and make some poor choices for foods. But I coutered that by removing all carbs from the meals that I could control, so the macros were hitting pretty close to target I think. A slight drop in weight was a happy sight after being stuck for two weeks. Arms...what can I say...they are at least maintaining their size which is very cool.

    I even got the "You look hot" comment from the wife yesterday, which totally makes all the effort worth it right there

    I guess I'll be the first to do it lol but I'd def love to see a before / after of the the new Jeep you get OR. I always think it's awesome seeing the changes people make over time to things. Sounds like a great hobby and in addition to the weightlifting gives off quite the manly man image
