I bought an 07 stock a little over a year ago for 17k. Earlier this year I added wheels, tires, lift, and a bunch of cheap mods. Build it yourself.

If it makes you feel any better my '08 hit 58,000 before I sold with a lift, 35s and a bunch of wheeling trips without a single issue.

They seem to be hit or miss so take your time on picking one.

Yea I just think I'll just get some nice rims and 35s and some flat fenders right when I get it and lift it after I get some more money and make it exactly the way I want it! Btw why did you sell your 2008?!

Make your own flat fenders. That'll save you some money too.

Got a job with a 63 mile commute each way and the gas was killing me. Bought small car and an XJ so the wheeling lives on!

Good luck with your search!

Piece of cake. I followed the video and saved myself about $500 instead of buying flat fenders.
