Isn't the guy with the red face the bad guy from Gumby? Didn't he always chase Gumby and Pokey around?

(Well, I just showed my age....)

i had a 99 tj before and the difference is big between the way you sit also because the 03-06 seats are more soft and you lose an extra inch from this too(no,i'm not fat )!anyway i really enjoy the rise and i'm 6,4''!

Does it make it easier to see over the hood on uphill climbs or dropping off of ledges?

Yes, just about an inch or two worth.

We have a 99 and an 01 and when we got the 04, not only did we not enjoy the restricted view, the lower seating bothered mine and my wife's lower backs.

Put the risers in and that went away.

I'm a bit over 74" tall.

Can you explain that rear tailgate again? I am going to be adding some mods to my rear bumper and having an additional power contact like how the rear light is done would be useful.

Tattoos, women and Jeeps...... I need to find cheaper hobbies.

the third brake light uses these contacts to work so if you want to take power from the 3d brake light wire and not put a new power wire from the front to the back of your Jeep ,to power an accessory like power locks in the talegate you have to buy from Jeep another set of these ground contacts!is the best solution if you don't want any wires hugging from the back!!

Oh ok, so you bought it from Jeep. Mind me asking how much? I am going to be installing rear lights and want to run everything through these instead of a drooping wire.

sweet rig, you need (imo) to get some black headlight bezels, looks like that's the last bit of chrome you have...

Sweet looking and clean... GET IT DIRTY! Looks better than my 06 does now.

Of topic...but whey do people cover up their liscense (sp?) plate numbers in pictures? Couldn't I just as easily see the info as your driving down the road?

I cover mine up because there are a lot more people on the internet that could be doing shady stuff than the few people who see me on my commute.

Also most people list all their mods here, many of which are not visible, so now you have a grocery list of modifications and the license plate.

Lastly, the less personal info I leave on the World Wide Web the better, you never know who you are talking to on the Web.

I am probably paranoid....


Nice Jeep by the way....
