Used polishing compound on a drill pad to clean the outside and inside of the windshield. Now it's clear as glass.

did a nice little mod



into this



ends up the jeep syncros were going out and the driveshaft was able to move 1 inch up and down... rear end was also shot(found out after I traded it the repair cost was almost 3k!)

I traded my jeep for 6.5k 99 with 112k miles for a 09 hhr with 32k for 11 grand

sure no 4x4 but I went from 7mpg highway to 33 ish highway

it does suck I just spent that 1500 in new tires... like 700 miles ago

2004 TJ 4.0 5 speed, 2 inch body lift, barricade armor, 4.5 bds lift, 35 mtz, sye, and tons more

Some things need to be said. A buddy of mine traded in his TJ on a frickin' hybrid Civic. That lasted exactly two months before he was back in an LJ. You don't know what you've got til it's gone.

Possible next mod for you. I think it still needs a fender trim though.

Yep most definitely the entire Jeep. I'm about to tear up the front end to install the Metalcloaks (they should be here early next week) so I figure that's the perfect time to shoot everything. I'm thinking of painting the overlines OD also and then the flare itself black.
