pepper was the name of the jeep stock, then it became the mud slut since as soon as it got clean, it was covered in mud again. after i converted the cargo area to a bed by taking out the rear butt rest, leaving the seat folded down and throwing in about 20 blankets and 6 pillows so me and my gf could be back there very comfortably, the jeep also got the nickname "the sex-wagon". but dont use that name cause parents dont like it..lol.

more random pics

























blew up the rear end in it at one point. going 70 on the way to a movie with my gf and the rear end locked up and had me skiddin almost sideway til it un-locked and i got it back under control and then started making this nasty sound. the pinion bearing melted and welded to the housing and shot the pinion gear into the carrier..pic



yeah those are teeth marks from the pinion in the carrier.

luckily found an identical rear-end with same gears, same year for $150 and swapped it in at a friends house.

i too bought mine with 205,000 miles on it but checked out EVERYTHING before i jumped behind the wheel.. that was one of the problems that needed fixing..
