In the Beginning:
Patroit Blue XJ

First MOD
3" Rusty's lift
32" Baja Wide Track a/t's
and bushwacker Flares!




then i added my Rusty's Sticker! :-)

ok so this weekend i had a friend of mine (also a Jeep owner and a body guy) paint the raido cluster bezel the same color as the body of my XJ. i think it looks awesome!



then i took a minute while the paint was drying to take a fgfew pics of my Cherokee and his Wrangler.


then i gave the ol' XJ a bath :-)


so far that all did a little more work of the storage drawers/sub box combo. have pics up soon.
