I'm still undecided... I guess it can't hurt to hold on to it, for now! Of course, if the right offer comes... It'll be gone!

I took it out for a little while this weekend... 😃

Don't do it!!!!! I kicked myself in the @$$ for two years after selling my first one. Bought another one, then promptly tore it apart to sit for eleven years.
Even sitting in pieces in the shed, there was no way I was making the same mistake again.
Finally got her back on the road a year ago, and have been driving the snot out of it ever since.
This one will never get away. To much blood,sweat, and tears into it. Well actually just too much money..........

You'll be sorry if you sell it........

Bob,
That sounds awesome! I'll keep that in mind! I was actually driving up tomorrow & staying through Sunday... But I cancelled last week!
I'm sure I'll be up again soon, though!
Happy hour would be great!

I just read threw this entire thread. After all the work and frustration used gone threw to get the jeep road worthy (and not including the money) you should deffinantly keep it. You will bate yourself for selling it.

Haha! It's still in my garage. As for grabbing a Madonna CD? Doubtful, Sir! Besides, I don't think it has a CD player... It's all about the Aux input & iPhone!
On another note, "Skyefalcon"? And, cheers? Are you a fighter pilot? Just wondering...

Thanks for the input!!!

Nope I was in the Army. I piloted Leather Personnel Carriers. Partied with a lot of real pilots (both Army & AF) tho.

Nice! That's funny! My husband flys F-16s... So, your comment seemed a little familiar. (No, I don't fit the stereotype)

Anyway Guys- I decided to keep the Jeep & gave up the Tahoe instead! I went the total opposite direction... & this is not something I would've thought I would do...
I bought a CAR! It's pretty fun to drive, though!!!

Just an update!

I dropped the Jeep off at West Wateree Off Road to have the 1 piece rear axle conversion kit put on, the front roll cage painted/installed, & new exhaust put on. I'm getting excited again!
In the next month or 2, I hope to finally get her painted- Black.
Today I went online & started adding things to my "wish list".... I can't wait for warm weather!

I went by today to check the progress & get some ideas together. I decided to make my own roll bar covers! I ordered marine vinyl & zippers tonight. I also ordered a black bikini top & plan to order black half doors this week. The new exhaust looks good... I'm a little concerned with how close the pipes are to my Plastic gas tank, though. I may post pics of that soon to get opinions...
The roll cage looks great & the rear axle is done. Now, the only hold up is the new speedo they're installing. Oh! I also ordered a sound bar today!
