    Traded my mustang gt awhile back for a 1994 wrangler. It's my daily driver/hunting vehicle. It had a 3" body lift,3" suspension lift, and 1" shackles. It has the ax-15 5speed trans and 4.0 motor factory ac that works hardtop aftermarket front bumper with a ramsey 9000lb winch. So far I've built a set of rocker guards with steps and just finished building a rear bumper with tire swing I added some ammo boxes to the swing for storage. The swivel on the swing is built with a 1,000lb trailer axle spindle and bearing kit. Just thought I would share some pics.

    Shawn, Very nice..I had a I think it was a 1992 Jeep wrangler hard top..I loved that thing..Its been across the NC mtns into TN and back more times than I can count. Rain,sleet,snow or hail it just soldiered on to my Girlfriends house and back....I even pulled my old Harley to Daytona a few times.. Loved changing gears in that thing..I sold it and got the pickup I have now..Man you do some good work with metal building stuff. looks good.

    Replaced the stock taillight's with a set of Maxxima hybrid led's. Also put a set of 35 BFG KM2's on it mounted on 15x10 Cragar soft 8 wheels. Working on putting tj fender flares on to give me some more flex room. [​IMG][​IMG]

    It looks good man, I miss my '02 TJ it had the 4.0, great motor! A '94 that spent its life in Ohio on the salty winter roads would be rusted like Swiss cheese, yours is clean!

    Got the tj flares finished up today. Gave them the heat treatment like I do on the four wheeler fenders before bolting them up. Last pic is the difference from heating. Left side is before heating right is after. Picture with my jacket on the mirror is stock flares other one is the tj flares gave me alot more room on the tires.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I have looking at the Banks cold air filter to put in my 05 Wrangler Unlimited. Looks like it would have more airflow but with some protection for the filter.

    Both jeepforum.com and wranglerforum.com should have plenty of info about the banks system.

    you should find away to market these before someone else does. I bet these would be a big seller.
