Heres something i have been working on,
a 1977 Jeep CJ-7, making it into a hunting jeep

I cut off the rear fenders, and the winch has real steel cable in it, " i used steel fishing line leader"

this is where i am so far.

James, great to see you here! That Jeep is looking great so far. I love the cargo in the back, and the winch too.

Thanks guys!
Well a Hunting Jeep wouldn’t be complete with out a rifle.
So I made one from aluminum tubing and a popsicle stick.

i always look forward to your work..you always seem to build projects that hit on my taste in builds.

i bet if there is one guy that could do an idea i have for this build,it is you..

how about a nice sized buck laid out over the hood?

Love this build.

This model is beyond too cool 8)

Looks great, and looks like you're having a blast building it.
