Hey Jeep Captain,

Congrats on your buy?

Have you started with parts sourcing?

How much did you pay for him?

Post some more pics please.

Not much of a 4x4 guy but this thing looks awesome. Great shape for an '87..plus the looks hasn't changed much. Aluminum body right?

Is that a spare tire mount on the bonnet?

How about some interior pics.

Shibu,

One of the link is here below (just search you will see a lot of links) This one is a torrent download

Download Discovery Channel - A 4x4 Is Born 15 Episodes Torrent - KickassTorrents.com

I used it before but I think it was stored in my home PC which crashed a while ago and cant locate it now.

Best Regards and Drive/Ride Safe

Ram
