haha yes i did feel that way, i honestly look at it and can't believe it is the same jeep. picked up some pre 97 flares and front bumper ends today at the scrap yard. Could not get the rear end caps off for the life of me tho, broke a few torx bits in the process. i will be searching for them at a junkyard back home when i have more time to search for them. more pics of it completely back together and my brushguard painted to come!
