My creepy jeep buy.

Ok so I drove this jeep a while ago and didn't like it at first impression but with a few touches here and there I believe I can make it look great. I decided I'll call the guy and buy it tomorrow...but when I looked at the picture one last time and I noticed a face in the passenger door. I feel like its a sign that this jeep is going to haunt me...does anyone else see a resemblance of a creepy face? That is a very dark tint too. And no there is nothing in the background resembling that image.

Anyway on a serious note the only thing I dislike is the d35 axle. It has a positive traction rear end. Will this be able to support 31's without any problems? This will be my daily driver and occasional wheeling, mostly sand and mud here in Florida.
Any advice on the buy is appreciated

Looks like a dog in the back window, not a creepy face.

Great find . looks clean.
The D35 will be fine with 31's . I know they have Non C-clip D35's but unsure of what years/models.

Haha it looks like a dog! And the D35 should be ok with 31's, just don't abuse her. I mean it could break, but you probably won't have an issue.

I saw a child's face. But for 3000 it has 115k miles and everything seems okay just a few cosmetic things outside and there are stains and its very dirty on the inside.

and if it's not a dog in the back, then it's a reflection of the garage attached to the house across the street, with 2 of the 3 bay doors open and a riding lawnmower in the driveway.

D35s range I feel, like iv heard of some that break with stock wheels and some that hold up with 33s and locked. but I think you will be fine with 31s, if not its a easy upgrade to a 8.25.

It's the ghost of a dead dog. Just leave a bag of Beggin Strips in the back to keep him from haunting you.

If it is a ghost, this would make an awesome zombie apocalypse vehicle.
