New Mexico Driving Rules...
  • As a general rule, the vehicle most in need of a significant amount of bodywork (for which the driver is most likely uninsured) always has the right of way.
  • Never use directional signals when changing lanes. They only serve to give away your next move, causing most NM drivers to speed up and not let you in. In fact, use of directional signals within most large NM city limits is actual illegal.
  • NM law states that at least 50% of all paved surfaces within the state must be under construction at any one time. In all construction zones, at least half of the available lanes must be closed, regardless of whether any actual construction is be accomplished or not. Construction signs shall be regularly repositioned in order to warn drivers about upcoming lane closures immediately after they pass the last exit before traffic backups.
  • Driving through constructions zones with upcoming lane closures is a popular game in NM. Itís called the "speed up and pass as many cars as you can, then see how close to the lane closure you can squeeze back into traffic before hitting any of the orange construction barrels" game.

to be honest i would have to see your jeep to judge wether or not you should run it. i think it looks pretty good. If i were mine i would want the the scoop to be a bit lower. but its pretty nice

I say Paint it and Run it... what's the worst that could happen? You decide you dont like it, and then you sell it... I think it would look great on the right XJ.

Thanks for the comments fellas, what i'm goin to do is hopefully get my friend to come by who has a camera and snap a photo before and after the hood is on.

If I do keep it and paint it as many suggested, it'd only be rattle can'ed

If you take your time, you can Duplacolor something to look like it came from the factory.
