Evolution of the New Jeeper

So the old Jeep Died:



It was totaled:

So I bought a new one. Here are some pictures from the day I bought it. My old one was a 96 with 136k this one is 98 with 104k









And its current state (as of 3 days after I bought it)

Took off the Mud Flaps, Put on the good tires and tinted the front windows:









Any comments are welcome

Looks good!

Now just throw on some front/rear recovery points and armor and you'll be ready for some trail action.
