No Spy Picts yet.

The top is back on, not fully adjusted to my liking yet. But, I will figure out why tomorrow night.

I just turned down an offer for a 2009 4dr JK. I probably will regret it in the future. The guy was serious, he wants the Jeep to display at his car lot to bring in customers.

Good boy, don't give in to temptation, you need to finish this thing and enjoy it for a long time.

That would equal out to a 20,000 dollar offer depending on bluebook ...

Nah, now if he wanted to give you a '12-'13 you might have had something to consider lol. However, I still think you did right, Dumpster is a much cooler Jeep

Was browsing the web and found this gem the other day, 22re with a 'yota rear axle :drool. Apparently it gets almost 30 mpg too..totally reminded me of this build. BTW I think 35" Grabbers would totally make this build, might put things into better proportion and the tread is wicked cool. Had a set on a 4BT YJ at work, looked

I've got an almost brand new extra "sunlighter" bikini I picked up on clearance that that I'd let go for cheap if you're interested. It lets some light through, but it's water proof....hell, if you want it...let me know & it's yours for the cost of shipping
