I wanted something to hunt out of that would be a little warmer than a 4-wheeler.  I considered a utility type vehicle such as a Rhino or Gator.  I love those but decide to buy an old jeep and fix it up.  I bought this jeep in February of 2011 and started the process of rebuilding it. Almost everything has been replaced or taken off and cleaned/reworked.  I guess you've heard Jeeps are money pits ... well it's true!
