Thanks for all the info! and the pictures helping explain it. Awesome! I have a two door. Decided my mom mobile days were dang near over and I love the two door and no offense to any four door owners here but the ones I run into here are yuppie couldn't swing the hummer, don't even wave folks.
So much to ponder. I am hesitant because I know once I start I'll get caught up as I've already found a bad ass bumper I love and some wicked wheels I wouldn't mind switching to. Hubby showed me the cool air intake hood which is cool too. There I'd go getting caught up in it and emptying my pockets of money I either don't have or shouldn't spend.
I appreciate all the input. If I were to do this, I'd want to do it right. Neighbor has an older rubi, lifted only for looks so it drives down the road like crap. My kid has an older jeep, lifted so high that I dang near need a ladder and his drives and handles as well as mine but I know what he put into it. (a nice downpayment on a house so he could move out on his own!
Prior to getting my jeep I was after a 3/4 ton diesel truck. That is what I wanted but kid bought a jeep and I loved it and got hooked and we rationalized getting the jeep since we already have a big one ton dually that I can haul horses with and since that isn't often these days, we opted for a more compact drive. (truck is over 19' long, a real bitch to run errands with) I can also drive this all over our trails.
I am torn, love a big bad ass drive and part of me wants to make him over into that, the other part wants to keep him stock-looking down the road from now. When I see older fully stock jeeps that are mint looking I give full appreciation to them.
The input with the pictures are a great reference! Thanks! I have some time to ponder. I am really torn between the mods and stock, it will be interesting to see which I actually tear. LOL!
