Diecast Model

I remember a while back there was a guy who was offering to make diecast models of our jeeps for a nominal fee. Well, he turned out to be a hoax, so i took matters into my own hands.....and made one myself. Bought a small can of dark khaki mopar paint, tinted the windows with sharpie, spray-painted the rims black, tinted the tails with the sharpie, and i made the bumper bars with electrical tape. Let me know what you think!

I keep this jeep on the road, so i don't have any clearance problems. I do the majority of my driving in the city, so i find it very helpful.......its taken a few bumps lol (none of them i have initiated).

As far as too much time on my hands.......touche lol. I had a lot of fun making this!
