Classic 1988 YJ Jeep Wrangler

I got inspired to make a model of my existing 1988 Jeep YJ Wrangler. I measured the LEGO wheels I had, and they were exactly 1/10th scale to the actual wheels. So, with no instructions but math, I proceeded. Here is the 1/10th scale result to which I think would be a fabulous kit! (If this happens – I look forward to branding my actual Jeep as the original model!)
