Another new Jeep owner Finally!

Hey everybody. Just bought an '06 Wrangler X "Light Khaki Metallic" this weekend. I've wanted a Jeep forever and Last year I was on my way to get a Jeep when I saw a Land Rover <----- dirty word???? Freelander convertible and bought that instead. Big mistake. I finally did the right thing Saturday and traded it in on a Jeep!

I've been lurking on the forum for a couple of weeks and love what you have here. I'm not planning to mod it out like most of your Kick butt mud and rock machines but I can't leave it completely alone so I'll probably add a little to it.

I plan to add PIAA 520 fogs to the front bumper, Raingler side nets (so my son doesn't pop out the side this spring), and maybe a Raingler rack and a half just cause i think it looks cool.

I'll probably paint the little steel wheels black too. Anyone have any tips on how to do it nice and clean as far as prep and what paint is durable and looks good.

I guess the idea is to make it look kinda like one of those army jeeps from back in the day and most of all just take off the doors and top and have a fun as hell Jeep like i've always wanted. thanks for the forum everyone!

Hey Onefastdak02 you have the color I really wanted. The dealer said they weren't gonna order any more orange ones because they sit on the lot too long. Oh well they gave me a great deal on the one I got that was sitting on the lot.
