Well I guess I have some catching up to do

Family bought the ZJ in 2005 it is a white 1996 V8 with 110k on it
I got it in 2010 when I started driving and never looked back!
When we bought it



How it sort of sits now

Beginning of the summer I bought this spare tire carrier bumper from another member it was a trail ready bumper and it had a custom tire carrier on it....... Only problem was I had to bend my tail gate to clear the hinge.

Also got my dads JK take offs brand new! Had to get adapters but definitely worth a brand new set of wheels and rims!

And present


Today I went to pic a part and one they raised the entry fee to 2 dollars which means I probably won't go to browse here in Va any more but Georgia is still great!

And secondly I got 2 new front fenders and some rear light guards! 40 per fender and 8 for the light guards!!

The weird things I saw where 2 different ZJs one had those weird eBay lights but that was in the parking lot but the second had manual leather seats that looked like they where from a 5.9 and fake wood trim on around the Vic cubby and shifter
Plus it was a 2wd Laredo......
