Much of my time is spent on my Jeep, but I enjoy my salsa garden, hot peppers (cooking, canning)
and have spent some time hunting and fishing, and relaxing at our PA mountain cabin.
54, married, have two sons (34 and 28) and two stepdaughters (40 and 378. Got my first Jeep at 16, a 59 Willys Wagon. Jeeps were always in my family. My dad bought the '71 slightly used in '73. I acquired it from him in '91. Been doing mods upgrades ever since, it's pretty capable for a moderate build. Sold it 7/20/07.
Now have an 05 LJ that I'm doing a moderate build. I work for a defense contractor that builds/rebuilds Bradleys and other military vehicles.
'05 LJ: 3" FT lift installed, 33x10.50 BFG MTs on Outlaw II's, Cassidy's Customs front bumper & sliders. Custom rear bumper & swing out also from Cassidy. Skid Row steering and fuel tank skids.
'97 ZJ 5.2 Ltd, stock.
Sporting the LJ's factory Ravine wheels.
oops... traded the ZJ in on 7/15/09.
Now we're down to just one Jeep.
On 7/19/07 I sold my '71 CJ5 after 16 yrs of fun and mods.

More cargo room
