another tj build with a twist

i bought a 1997 jeep wrangler ..... its a 4.0 with 120k on it it was driven by a 60 year old its whole life span... i have pages and pages of every oil change and etc he has had done to the jeep.... he did a 4" lift and put some big tires on it. rims with way to little back spacing... head lights that were tinted so dar by his son that i had to get brand new ones as you see in the pics.... and alot of lil **** that i cant stand... i am almost starting from as if the jeep was stock other than the lift.

The plow was just put on by me so no it has never been plowed with... and yes lol i am about to do it for my drive way and a few others....

Have you had trouble with them? I read some reviews and they dont seem to good. Everyone says they rip you off and dont send you good quality and dont answer your phone calls, emails, and any form of contact.

Okay cool. I'm still a little skeptical. Haha. But how long does there shipping take if you get two differant colors? Cause I want to know when I should start to get nervous.
