My wife is the same way. I'm hoping she'll come around. Are you going to Grand? If so are you diving? I can recommend a great outfit to go with and some good places to eat as well.

Hey Bsflyboy


Let us know if you find any rims with some red in them. I will take delivery of a black/red jkur in 2 weeks and am looking all over for some wheels with red accents.

Thx

Now cannot decide between that lift and just doing the AEV spacer lift. The spacers will guarentee 2" over stock, the spring one is unknown at this point. But hopefully you can answer this, as the guy I spoke with at AEV before I received mine could not.
I don't know how much taller it is over stock as I never saw it stock. The dealer installed the lift and tires before delivery so I never got a chance to measure it. I still have yet to measure it, sorry I am not much help

My dealer sent me one last teaser to hold me over till Monday. Not sure what the man was thinking, but it is unique. I call it; "Last thing you see, before I run you down with my 10A"....

The brand name on those are Tuff. They have a couple other wheels that have red accents as well including a 5 spoke that looks similar to last years Rubi wheels but satin black with a partially red rim.

I think Moto Metal has one or so as well.

I'm also considering the Walker Evans Street version that look like bead locks. They look really good with the grey spokes and a red bead lock ring. Thinking I would have the ring powder coated to match the hooks though.

One other trick I'll share is that if I do these wheels is satin black then I am going to make a stencil of the jeep on the stock wheels so I can dupe them onto the new ones! That should throw a few people off!

Jeep needs to compete with the Rav4, CRV, Escape segment. They all look very similar. One thing about the new Cherokee is that it has a real low range as far as I hear, which is pretty cool for a unit-body cross over.
Wolf... until I took delivery of my 10A, I wouldn't accept the Wrangler Unlimited as an adequate replacement for my XJ Cherokee. In fact, I wish they would have rebranded the Wrangler Unlimited as the new Cherokee, and named this wedgie looking contraption as the Wrangler. It sounds more appropriate.

Imo, Jeep has their wires crossed... but I'm biased toward the Cherokee nameplate.

I'm going to continue with the restoration of my 1991 Cherokee, even though I've had recent thoughts of cutting my emotional ties. It will serve as remembrance of what Jeep did to blend utility with a great daily driver.

When my XJ is complete I will post side by sides with my 10A.

Call 1-877-426-5337 (IAMJEEP)

m-f, 7am-noon
s, 8am-8pm
s, 9am-5pm

have 6 digit VIN ready, and they will ask for your address, etc., BUT, they will only send it to you IF you already have delivery of the vehicle. Ask for the owner's manual, and the manual for the entertainment system in your 10A, whatever it may be.

You won't believe how big the owner's manual is!

It's the A/C. They think a connection was smashed during install and it's causing the compressor and fan to work against each other? Causing pressure in the cooling system. They disconnected the compressor for the weekend, and have an updated computer enroute, to see exactly what's wrong. I have to drive with the windows down for the weekend. Not too bad yet! It will be in the 80's in south Louisiana this weekend. That's ok..

3 months to the day. Finally. Poor lighting, poor equipment (iPAD) but it's now in the driveway and it's mine (well it's my wife's but I get to drive it a lot along with my '03 Rubi)

Went to SAM's club to pick up a few things after 2 hours at the dealer and this jackwad in an H2 parked in no parking zone next to me. Should have got a side shot but that color was very similar to anvil.

Scored 1.14% from chase at the dealer on financing after locking in 1.49 with Alliant Credit union on my own.

Had 100ish miles on it on delivery as the dealer decided to drive it from Nashville since it has been sitting there since last Saturday 4/20 waiting for a full truck trailer.

WOOT!!!!
