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?

Ya I was thinking I was taking it off track sorry. BTW I hate walmart with a passion but they have the MTRs if you can't find them they carry all the way up to a 42" tire... I was like dang who knew after 35" you will have to order online but I think they pay for shipping so thats not so bad.

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.
