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

Basically I sold my crawler last year and I'm in the process of building another crawler. Owning an Offroad shop always puts a dent in your time for a full build. Not wanting to wait another riding season on my personal build i picked up this older Jimmy's 4x4 rig recently, gave it a full rewire, some new lighting, transfer case rebuild, full service, some exhaust work and a new set of sticky treps and she's ready to roll. Something fun to enjoy for a while. 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 very little. As with everything I own it will see a few more upgrades over it's lifetime but it's ready for the summer!
