Background
: My first vehicle at 16 years old was a rusted out CJ-7. I’d take all kinds of things apart on it and many times my dad would have to come fix and help put the parts back together again but I always enjoyed trying to fix things on my own. Since then I’ve owned (2) YJs, a CJ-5, and a TJ.

Back in 2003, my TJ met its demise:

Needless to say, my wife was less than thrilled and I was banned from 4x4s for a few years. I finally bought a ’74 early bronco (wish I still had it) then a ’97 land cruiser that I owned until ordering and receiving the 2018 JLUR in July of ’18:

It's a sting-gray JLUR with manual transmission and of course the cold weather package...

More to come bringing the build up to present day...

Crazy video. I remember watching that video 10+ years ago. Never been to Alaska, but it looks amazing. Anxious to keep an eye on this thread,
