Well I'm in a pickle now.....But I'm going to tell the truth. His website is still advertising the $850 price. So he honored it.

Everyone needs to get it now...cause MrOrange is right.....he is going to $950 but his website guy has fallin down on the job!

Dropped it off this morning for a new fuel tank. Picked it up and went straight to the gas station. Woo hoo it worked!

I would have thought they might fill it just to see if it really was fixed. I would pay for the fuel, but to tell me it's all good now and the tank is still empty is odd. Odd because I have had other fuel parts replaced trying to fix this and it was "all better" last time.

Brought it in for inspection, when picking it up my mechanic told me to bring it in to Jeep because I have a bearing problem in the engine... Engine is definitely sounding strange, NOT COOL... Anybody else have experience with this?

Mine works well now.

Had to take it back once because they didn't put a vacuum line on right and I kept getting a message to "check gas cap". Had to take it back and get it fixed.

New bumper

Installed my XHD Light Mount, removed JEEP hood emblem, and removed RC BB....



[IMG]http://i644.photobucket.com/albums/uu165/Matlan06/XHD003.jpg[/IMG

removed BB below


Not much difference from the BB below

I just think it looks better without lift with the 32's....
