My Two Jeep Wrangers

I currently own 2 Jeeps.

One is the pink (used to be green) rock crawling competition Jeep. It was originally a 1997 TJ Wrangler SE. The only part on it that is original is the frame. The body tub has been swapped from a 2000 TJ, the grille is an aftermarket piece from Crown Automotive, and the engine is a 4.3L Vortec out of a 2003 GM truck. This thing is a driving billboard for parts available through 4Wheel Drive Hardware. Here is a list of parts you can find on this rig:
