When he was 16, he had his choice of vehicle. Deciding between a number of more practical vehicles, he settled on his first and current jeep, a 97 Jeep TJ. Flame red, 5 speed, I6 sitting on 4 inches and 33" MTR's. He quickly learned how Jeeps are an addiction and suddenly, had started a list of things he wanted or needed for his jeep. Being a full-time student, he didn't have too much time to work and couldn't find a high paying job, so mods were few and far between. By the time he hit college, he had a better paying job and the money started to add up. Skip a few years and here he is:
