About “Short Bus”
As I live rural & the winters can be a little harsh I had been wanting a 4 X 4 for quite a few years. I had been looking into a Jeep TJ Sport when the Short Bus appeared on one of the local lots. It was lust at first sight & love at first test drive. I traded in my 2000 GMC Sonoma & never looked back.
About “Unfinished Business”
It currently reads 266,079 miles on the odometer. All the pictures here are within a year old.
My truck I bought slightly used in June 2002. It used to be my dad's work/commuter truck. He is the only one to drive it before me and the guy that PDI'ed it when it was dropped at the dealer.
I have done most of the work on here as well as bought most of the parts myself. I painted the interior, installed the performance parts, exterior and interior accessories myself, with the exception of the alarm, exhaust, tailgate and front valance, and system.
It's been a blast to work on and there is a lot more in store for it, including:
Leather/suede seat upgrade, sunroof, body paint, LS2 6.0, 4L80, and more.
All in all, this truck has had about $11,000 put into it including all parts and labor.
