    What did you do to your jeep today?

    So far it has worked extremely welll. Very effect, however the install was a little difficult. Also, I never knew how soft asphalt really is until I put it up on stands. Sunk nearly an inch into it. Yikes!

    Perfect Pitch—A 1979 IH Scout Restomod That Hits All The Right Notes

    Defining “restoration” and “restomod” is difficult for some, but not Joe Torres.
