Best Christmas Gift ever

So you would think a free trip to the Bahamas is a great Christmas gift. While I was in the Bahamas drinking rum and talking to the coconut man, and being chased by pit bulls on a 150cc scooter. My friends stole my Jeep and had the mechanics preform a complete overhaul. When I returned from the Bahamas, I walked by my very own Jeep and not recognizing it I made the comment "Thats a cool looking Jeep". To my surprise I was handed the Keys, only to discover that it was my own Jeep. Complete with...

Rubicon Express 3.5 Super flex lift
33inch Maxxis Big horn tires.
SMF rear tire carrier / rear bumper.
New intake.
Throttle body spacer
SMF rock slider thingys.
New break lines.
And a couple of other things.


What I had before was..
2inch procomp lift.
31inch Maxxis Trepadors
Hella 500 fog lights
9000lb T-Max winch.

That's awesome! Good friend you got there. You definately owe some beer/bbq

On our last deployment one of my Marines wives posted up on a Bronco board that she wanted to fix up her husbands old bronco while he was gone. The bronco community came together and when he got back, his bronco had been completely bebuildt. The thing was awesome. He still has a grin on his face 3 months later.

Wow, a free trip to the Bahamas AND your friends build up your Jeep while there you're having Pina Coladas! Wow I need friends like that.

Getting Savvy...

When you have a choice, buy American.
