A 1983 Jeep CJ-7 4WD build by @theandrewbailey

Owning an Offroad shop and working full time for an automotive manufacturer always puts a major dent in your time for a personal full build. Last year I picked up this older Jimmy's 4x4 rig. I knew it was going to need some love but it had great bones. I gave it a full rewire, some new lighting, transfer case rebuild, full service, PSC Steering updates, new Fox Coilovers, new steering column, new Warn winch, some exhaust work, some suspension tweaks, a beautiful paint job in lamborghini grey, KMC Grenade Crawl Beadlock wheels with a set of 42" BFG Reds and she's ready to roll. Something fun to enjoy until I do another build. She's from Farmington NM and has been wheeling some of the hardest terrain in the country for her entire life. This is a fun build that runs like a champ and truly performs. It was built by one of the best Offroad shops in the country and needed a little love as it is an older build. Proudly part of team Flex Rocks and Rollovers
