im guessing...... ONLY the dealer can sell something like that for 3k. I planned on selling my 01 with 3" lift, 31x10.5x12 X-terrains and Procomp soft 87's and the sig.

I just broke 173k and cant get close to 2k. oh well.... its like some say, a jeep is a friend for life. I'm keeping her now. Just named her Panda.
