Chatttown Jeepers

A 1997 Jeep Wrangler TJ build by @chatttown_jeepers

Started as a 2.5 4cylinder TJ on Dana 30/35 Two weeks later I stripped it down to make room for the Ford 60 and Chevy 14 bolt, next it was off to btf for a complete overhaul and new suspension and all the fabrication parts. Now I’m in the final stages at home in a shop wiring in the motor and finishing up the project to get out on the trails. @chatttown_jeepers
