You never know bud. One the Jeeps in Hel that's my favorite to see is a black Commander on 31's. It looks really good. The patriot is like a mini Commander. But the color of the rig means alot to me too. You could have the most rigged up Jeep, but if it's blue or green, that's a big negative to me.

Ya it is a family car ill have the TJ and CJ to wheel in. I just pray my addiction does not take over and I go and over build it. Haha if I find a ZJ or XJ as clean as yours before I buy a new car ill go with that even though my GF might be a little pissed.

I buy what I love. The xJ had to be a 2dr and much newer than my '87, but not a '97+. The ZJ had to be a stone white '98.

Im the same way and that patriot is jumping at me at the moment. I would never go and get something not made by jeep im not a jeep nut its just I am familiar with most of the parts and I like the brand.

I understand the loyalty, but I'd be willing to bet you won't be familiar with anything on the Patriot. It may as well be a Subaru Forrester.

Thats probably true man I wish XJs got better gas. I have to drive a lot so I need a vehicle that gets good highway millage. What are some good options?

A Patriot would be a good option. Just don't expect to be familiar with how it's built. As far as something you'd be familiar with that gets good mileage, an XJ with 2.5 and a 5spd on 235's

Sorry bud. I don't know what it is. I'm just into natural colors. Due to yours being bedliner, it's got an advantage. I do like your Jeep, especially now that the engine matches

I suppose it's time to turn this back into a build thread instead of "Confessions of the Devil".
I'm gonna get my flares pulled off today so I can get rollin' on this vinyl. But the flares are going back on. I also need to find an adhesive that will bond aluminum to chrome plating. I'd been told E3000 was good stuff, anybody used this before?

That's good to know. We've got two Goodyear tire shops in town, but I'd bet Walmart is cheaper. I ended up working on a '76 GMC shortbox my boss is giving to his son-in-law. Masked the whole truck off and painted the engine bay.
