Kosalka's YJ

Fact: This YJ is an ongoing father/son project.

An incredible amount of thought and engineering went into each and every modification on this YJ.

It took about two years for Kosalka to create what you see here, and the word "unique" doesn't even begin to describe this rig. But make no mistake. First and foremost, this Jeep was built to perform off-highway. Some of the exterior mods include a customized Poison Spyder front bumper with Warn XD9000i winch, all-encompassing exoskeleton/rollcage/"boatside" rock sliders, "rattle can" paint job, aluminum roof panel, PIAA spotlights, Champion beadlock wheels, and 35-inch Goodyear MT/R tires.
