The Clip-On Bowtie

Long story short, here's my new LJ. image-1725704021.jpg

Bought it with 15xxx miles.

How much did you get that for? 15000 miles is rare for an Lj

About 3-4k under the Bluebook value. A doctor in NC bought it just to go camping, and it sat on his property for 8 years and never moved..

Not sure how I'm going to sequence the installation of the relocators. Just have the stock coils right now, and I'm pretty sure you have to use the 3" piece of aluminum they provide to hold the bumpstop cup. They might have to wait until I pick up some OME coils. BUT THEN, I can't install my coils until Poly sells me their front track bar…. They are finishing up the prototyping.

The Poly stuff is super nice. Way better than a lot of the stuff I've used in the past.
