Would you be interested in selling one of the decals? I am missing one off of my drivers door and haven't had any luck finding one.

@ Pincheburro (nice username by the way)

Since you're going to invest in the alarm, I'd also look into some darker tint for all the rear windows. In TX, just get the darkest possible in the rear and you shouldn't be able to see into the vehicle. One issue though is since this happened where you live, it's hard to deter as the crooks now know you have something in there. Definitely start with the alarm though. Alternately, you could get the rear cargo cover as well.... out of sight out of mind.

DEI makes Viper, Clifford, Python, Avital, and a bunch of factory add ons. They don't make that one. Sonic is an awesome company to buy from though. I have purchased from them a number of times.

When I checked out the guy asked me what the louvers were and I told him hood vents/louvers, but they werent listed in his comp so he rang them as misc 1.50 ea. Drip pans same 1.50 ea. Tow hooks 5 pr. Then he threw in the emblems. Definitely head back tomorrow for a second look. They had the 9r rims on one of them. Wish they had more WJs though.

It was yesterday actually...

I decided to take it out for a little chores run. Every time that I drive it I find myself smiling and generally happy. Went to Harbor Freight to get the air compressor exchanged for one that works... friggin thing...

Then I decided to take a detour at what looked like a new development after the excavators had come through. Had some fun climbing a few hills and bouncing around. Still need to get out to trail test the new lift.
