First 2 days with Starwood Jeep

Took delivery of the Starwood on Thursday afternoon. The jeep is just plain bad ass in person. Gets the attention of everyone who sees it. I think I've put more miles off road than I have on the road. Ran the paint through really tight trails with trees scraping down the sides pretty badly. I took some video of this that ill post. Not a single blemish on this paint. No way I would consider taking a 2013 jeep without this paint on the trails I have been on. BY FAR the #1 must have for any Jeep owner. We took the jeeps down the beach today and my brother in law got his jeep stuck down near the tide. No problem, pulled the winch cable out and 30 seconds later, ready to go. Now for the bad news...........for my wife.....I may have to keep this for myself! This jeep is way too much fun! Here are some pics from the ride today. I promise I will get Jeep cleaned tomorrow as I know people want better pics of Jeep.
Anyone considering a Starwood, go for it. You will be glad u did.

Looks like you had a great day!

Now, did you already tell your wife you bought it for her? If you did, you may wind up sleeping in that jeep for the night when you tell her you've changed your mind...

Can't wait to see more new pics that show off that pretty paint job!

Congratulations!

Nice looking jeep.

I'm not a fan of their choices in mods, but damn I wouldn't hesitate getting that paint job. Did they do the inside too?

The clear coat on the jk is still tough. I had some custom pinstripes from encounters with tree branches and it just wipes right off. The Kevlar is much more durable though. Nice rig
