I like the look of that WJ. Not every Jeep has to look like a red-nekkd hacked up POS (mind you I have one of those!). It's tastefully done and he spent some $ on the paint job ... just like many of us. Too bad he went with Altezza tail lights tho.

If you are looking for quality, then why would you put a stick on hood cowl on it. Atleast spend the few hours to mold it into the body or get a real, useful cowl.

flame away my friends. At least he keeps it clean... and chicks model on it for him.


Well.. the ride looks fine except for the wheels. Like a trusty bulldog with the legs of a rich lady's poodle. Shameful if you ask me. Shameful. While the trails shed a tear for what might have been, at least he'll never get stuck at the mall.

Unfortuately I guess I have to throw my new baby in here. Just got it and it came with a 4" lift and 29's. New wheels and 33x12.50's have been ordered and should be here in a couple of weeks. I can't wait...

I understand that the tires are too small, but what's wrong with those wheels? I had those once, painted them black, and they looked great; but somehow my lugnuts did not like them. Wish I could have kept them.

I wouldn't say he's going for quality. He's in it strictly for looks ... Isn't that obvious? And I think it looks great. Now what he has done to the interior makes me seriously question his sanity, but I hold to my first impression of the exterior.

Hey congrats on the ride. Looks great. Even the wheels. The tires are fine for stock height, but hey, you did right. Post a follow up pic.

Ok, so while my JK sports 35's, the TJ I just got has the 27's. Pathetic I know, but not for long. 33's in the mail.

That Jeep looks like one I saw cruising around the neighborhood near my work. Anyone know if it's from the Pittsburgh PA area?

wow.. same model, color, wheels, and air deflector. Can't see if there's a black gas cover. Wouldn't be shocked if that's the same ride. Small world, eh?

zactly, the gas cap deal was the only difference I could find, but there are Advanced auto's all over. He could have actually been on his way to the parts store buy it and add yet another pointless accessory to his Jeep that will never get used to it's full potential under his ownership. Am I bitter about the situation you ask...YES. I looked up that flickr link someone else posted & it's definitely the same jeep. He says it will have 20's on it soon enough. : as if swapping the wheels off his old Monte Carlo and putting them on a Jeep wasn't bad enough.
