Sold LJ bought a 07 JK Unlimited.. Time to build

I'm new to JK's but have been around jeeps my hole life.
sold my 04 LJ about two weeks ago because #3 came along and we needed more room. (at least thats what the wife said) Well last week i bought a 07 JK Unlimited for less than 19k, its kinda rough but hopefully, can clean it up a little. the plans are a 3 in taraflex lift and 35 to start with. Then go from there. I'm going to post pics of the LJ and the New to me JK. Let me know what you guys and/or gals think

OLD LJ














THE NEW JK

Welcome to the land of the minivan

That LJ was VERY nice! Looking forward to seeing what additional plans will surface for the JK.

Not to be rude, but I was never a fan of the LJ (although yours does look nice). I too had to sell my TJ when the kids started rolling in. Then BANG! the JK was created! I can fit 3 kid seats right across the back. You will love your new ride.

Congratz!

Looks great so far! Are those the same wheels / tires from your LJ or did you buy new?

Welcome to the darkside.

I really like that Deep Claret (or whatever in the hell red that is) it looks great.

btw... Great looking LJ back there. LJ's are my second favorite Jeep product (after the JK of course)
