50 bucks of chrome equals at least $3000

At least! I think you're low-balling though.

I can't decide which would add more additional value. A NOS or TapOut sticker. Sure, a NOS sticker would add another 50 horses, but TapOut means you're the toughest guy in the JeepForum.

Problem with chrome and stickers... you put the price out of the range of half your buyers. Lol

Good point. I didn't think about that. Maybe just some chrome sliders then. I guess I could put smaller stickers. Hot Topic has a nice selection.

I know when I go to sell my CJ I'm just adding the word vintage in the title somewhere. Should raise the value at least five grand

Chrome depreciates the value! Don't do it. It makes it akin to trying to sell AIDS! "gots the HIV, u wants some?"

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

For those who like to play from home, here is where we'll be tomorrow:

35į48'1.70"N 116į 5'11.66"W

That's just over the CA border. It's the starting area of a web of trails where we hope to find more mines to get into.

You are right. Just use words like rare, legendary, desirable, antique, and green. You will make thousands.

I know they have their limitations and I don't care what anyone says, I'd rock that with the windows down and proud. It's the ultimate zombie carnage wagon! Just look at that brush guard!!! I can just see the zombies flying off of it, or pesky pedestrians or bicyclists at redrock that insist on riding three and four wide!

After you sign up, you assign people into various contact groups.

You can then create up to 14 different messages. I have messages like:
"About to enter a mine at this location."
"All clear. Heading home."
"Jeep disabled. Need help at this location."

Using my Android, I use the app to decide who gets whatever message. I don't need a cell signal. It uses satellites.

I can send any of the 14 custom messages any amount of times. Additionally, I paid an extra $29 for 100 custom messages from location to give detailed info. A follow up to one of the 14 canned messages. Something like:
"Bring parts and tools to repair snapped driveshaft."

It can't receive messages. This is strictly outgoing. DeLorme has a 2way device, but the service is $30-50 a month, I think. A bit too pricy for me.

For what it is, it seems great so far. Bass Pro carries them in stock. $150 for the Spot Connect. $100 for the annual service. Go get one!
Cool thanks, I looked over the website and the Spot GPS Messenger looks like a better deal for me since I don't have a smartphone. It can still send OK messeges, and track on google maps, and has the help/sos stuff too.
