When you have resealed the cowlseals and put rtv on the screws to the roofrails AND ITS STILL RAINING IN THE **** THING....
Time to talk to the guy who replaced the windscreen to se what he can do.

Dont have a sunroof that can leak so it must be the windscreen.

When you only payed a GRAND or less for the thing but within months it turns to a "Couple GRAND cherokee"

So true!!

LMFAO!!!

I paid $500 for mine in April, and now, 6 months later, I've got an "Almost three GRAND Cherokee"

And when Niners were new, that would've made them a "Forty GRAND Cherokee"???

I bought my ZJ for $1200 in April 2012. Including that, I'm now about $5,000 into it. I still have about $500-1000 to go before it's in saleable condition. Even then, I'll be lucky to get 2k for it. Of course, as she sits, I'd be lucky to get $500.

I'm in deeper than that. I bought mine for 4 and have put about 8 into it (over the almost 4 years I've had it).

YKYDAZJ when you hear the song 'I hold on' by Dierks Bentley and the first part about his old pickup reminds you of your feelings towards your zj lol
