Hmmmm, this is perhaps, overkill?

Has anyone seen this one for sale in Nashville? They are saying it was an Ex-NFL player's ride. I just can't get past the rims, I suppose. I'm new here and I would guess some would like the paint, but shy away from the rims and tires. Whew, too much for me. Check out the link for all the pics.... 2007 Used Jeep Wrangler Rubicon at Dixie Motors Serving Nashville, TN, IID 8078667

Sort of my reaction as well. Dixie is a great dealership here though that always has Jeeps. They know they sell. This one...................may sit awhile!

I'd strip the decals, sell the rims to someone with a Cadillac and buy 15's or 16's with 35's on them

Back when I was in high school, one of the kids got a new Mustang from his parents and ordered custom plates that said, "WEALTHY".

About two weeks later, someone took a baseball bat to it. I mean every body panel, windows, headlights, tail lights.

Sometimes it's better to fly a little under the radar.

yea, it's just "okay." those rims are overboard in my eyes. the color isn't so bad as it looks like the traditional army green, but it's just too flashy. as I and others have said many times, to each their own.

Wheels would make all the difference.

The rest isn't that bad.

Wheels are too much and then sticker on the Door says Marshall Motoart? I could do without that too.

I kinda like it, my only complaints would be that they did all that work and didnt improve the interior at all, and that the price seems high for some paint work, suspension and wheels especially on a on a 6 model year old vehicle

Needs some work. The wheels are, obviously, a disaster. But I like the color and I bet the lift kit is a high end one. A good find if you can get a good price.

How bad is the Air-Ride offroad? Looks like it would really limit the atriculation and travel.

Probably not good to laugh but this had me going in my office. Something to be said for modesty.

I actually like the color of the OP Jeep, just not much else.

I kinda agree with OutlawJK but dude... this is the internets. It was built to house opinions. And gossip. And anonymous bashing.

I like the jeep minus the wheels, 35s on 17s would be just about perfect for this rig.

I wouldn't mind the rest of the stuff, and at this rate I would do a supercharged hemi swap into that bad boy!!
