I like this notion of not having to pass emissions...it's the only thing I worry about outside of not having an ebrake...that and having a massive viewing window in my drivers side floor.

bleh snow...its fun to wheel in when it ever comes, but being from cape cod i guess ill never get that opprotunity except for the ocassional snow squal ha....and when i graduated hs a couple years ago i had those subs and mids and all that and then realized that my box would get beaten around and cracked when i went offroad, so i have ceased the subs and am perfectly fine with the soundbar and dask speakers

The cape had a good snow storm this month... Made me realize how lucky i am to have a YJ when i had to help pull a snowplow out of a drift haha.
What part of the cape are you on btw?

Sorry everyone for taking so long!

Apparently the guy sold the engine while i was gone anyways. oh well.

Cape, I was planning on getting sound wedges and bolting them right down and only using the sub box w/ the hard top or on the way to and from school. Yours is looking nice too, is the paint staying on the rims? What type of paint did you use? Also about the suspension, I've been saving up a lot and im going BDS or OME once something breaks. Seems to me it would be worth the better ride.

So if I dont have to pass emissions i can do the nutter completely legally?

I'm in Danvers on the NS

I got it from Hamilton Enterprise in Rowley right off route 1. I never personally met the PO, all i know about him is that he was in the army.

It was an islander, I'm planning on repainting the flares black again.
