I'd be looking for something closer if it were me... like this... but the other one does look nice.

Ditto in removing the glass filter; although it is a quick reference if/when a fuel pump acts up. Can quickly see that its a fuel issue.


I'd be a little concerned with overheating, especially living in Florida.

Looks like there is a quality radiator in it, but you may have to mess around w/ dual electric fans and/or a shroud if you experience higher than usual temps.

I saw on the 'What did you do to your CJ today' thread that you've decided to buy this one:

Congrats on becoming a CJ owner and please keep us updated with plenty of pics when you take delivery of it and future mods!

Haha ditto here... Just under 10k in mine and it has a rattle can paint job. It sure does smoke everything around and is way too fun to drive. I love the looks I get when they get passed by a 35 year old rusty looking Jeep. I'd rather have a solid runner than a looker, but in this case looks like you get both.
