Ahh that's right, been so long since I had my 2000 ex. Anyway if he's got the sohc he should check out the timing chaing guide. It's made out of plastic and its a ticking time bomb lol

I will have to check out that forum. I plan on moving my system over Saturday night or Sunday. Mom just text me and said that today's probably the last day I will have to dd the jeep. I think I'm going to weld the spiders In the rear and wheel the piss out of it till something breaks

Cheap is the name of the game, plus lots of blue hairs with Buicks at my Local Rural King, figured something up front was better than nothing

That's what my dad said.
I had 'em laying around for years, decided to see what they looked like.
Gets lots of stares in town, dunno if they're positive or not

What's nice is.......if I don't like it anything else up front, or not, doesn't matter........only drilled 2 holes per side. Did have to slot one of the holes in the hoop to use the fog light spacing.

Not sure what protection it affords, but may help with minor parking lot nonsense, which I actually pointed out in the initial post. Old women banging into everything, must have a 50% retiree population in my town.

I think if one is over 55 and they buy a Buick it ought to come with a flashing yellow light on top, like a freakin' schoolbus .

Get some flat steel to put under it and figure something to go around the top to lock a Jerry can in there. It would be kinda cool

BTW, the space between helps in working from the top (like pouring in oil and other that seems to just run through)

Maroon. Can't think of the trim level off the top of my head. I do know that it has a 6 disc changer so I'm gonna guess its a higher end model. Has cloth seats so I won't have to swap the seats. I hate leather with a passion. Yeah I'll grab some when I'm swapping the system. And my parents just put a new kenwood head unit in it like 3 weeks ago so I don't have to mess with that. Just cut the speaker wires off the harness since my speakers will be on the amp.

If it has tan trim on it, it is a Eddie b edition. If not its prob is a xlt. Xls is the base model

It's a xtl then. They also had some brand new tires put on it in the last few months. So I'm good there too. It needs cleaned up. My dad works at a steel mill and its got some like concrete or lime on the sides pretty bad. I kinda want to paint the rims same color I did on my zj too

I'm sure it will look good once it's cleaned up going to lift it? Maybe a simple Tt in the front and warrior shackles in the back?
