Congrats, it looks great! Just got mine last week & can't wait to get it lifted and hopefully someone will teach me how to take it off road.

A.) Beautiful Jeep.
B.) I believe the rule is: you're supposed to preface the first pic of your Jeep with the words

"BOOM! YEAH, YOU SEE IT!"

It's an 08. 4x4 with 18k miles. It was driven by a 65yo lady that never took the tops off. Not one blemish. Got it for 20k. How'd I do?

I can't believe you took advantage of a little old lady.

If you feel like you got a good deal, then that's all that matter. Take the doors off and you would not care if you paid 30k!!!

She said it was too hard to get into so she never drove it. The bugs were from the 3 hour ride home

congrats on the new ride... 1 more hooked. On the hood flutter, if the removal of the spring doesn't satisfy, go with Drake hood latches. Great product, great customer service
