Welcome

Welcome to my new Blog. I will be writing about trips and adventures that I have taken. Gear that I have. Build of my Jeep. Things that I have bought that I wish I did differently.

DIY Cargo Platform (updated)

I was working a busy schedule with not alot ofContinue reading “AEV Lift Install”
