I'd give my left nut for a White Tailgate that looks that nice...

I recently got an 89 MJ Pioneer, White, but the gate is pretty beat up!

Nice looking MJ though...Can't wait to see with lift and such...

lift on




bad pics i know i just finished and pulled out of the shop to test the brakes, its a 4.5inch RE superflex kit and i used the leaf from the aal and its level next i will regear and i have some 32 tsl sx's for it then winch and sliders and locker and...... but im happy with the lift, it rides so much better (old lift was 3inch spacers on stock shot shocks and it sucked)
enjoy
