Still gonna paint it, small lift, must have a winch and jeez those sunrider tops sure look nice.
Is a 1989 Jeep Wrangler Islander considered a dependant for purposes of income tax deductions? Can I claim it as a special needs member of the family? Can I start an IRA for it?
Yea I have pretty meek thoughts so far. The only other thing I like that gets expensive is the metalcloak fenders. Even though I won't be doing any climbing, damn do those MCs look aggressive. But it is like 1500 for a set of front and rear fenders. I don't know if I like them that much. They may be a fair price if you are using them for what they are intended for, but 1500 for something solely for looks is steep for me.
So to revise my list, this is what it looks like will be happening.
All body work done
New fenders (brand to be determined)
herculiner the inside.
Powder coat roll bar and front n rear bumper.
new center counil
New speakers and radio
Banks ram air, header, head pipe and exhaust.
This will (should) tide me over till winter.
Then around November I will throw some new Rims and shoes on it. Something nice and knobby to get me through the Midwest Snow.
We'll see how it goes from there.
