This is my new Sahara. I still have to do the lights and a few things, but it's coming along.

Great looking Jeep. I am supremely jealous, I love that color and it sucks they only made it for one year.

Thanks. I had a hard time finding the color. Had to do a deal over the phone, then drove for 5 hours to get it. The tan actually does a good job of hiding dirt.

I really dont like JK's at all and you sir have a nice one.

Ive started to think of the 4 door wranglers in a different light, the true replacement of the Cherokee. Sure most 4 doors are driven by soccer moms, but so were most 4 door cherokee's when they were new

Thanks. They only made the Sahara Tan for a month or 2, so not many in 2012.
