Oh no. 4 door matched top jk? You traded in a "real jeep" for one of our new "mallcrawlers"! LOL. Just kidding around. Looks great. The jk must feel a big upgrade.

Thanks, ya it was a hard decision to trade in the old girl but with dogs and and wife and kids in the near future it had to be done. Trying to make the mall crawler a little more trail worthy. Already has a 2.5" taraflex and 33's

Totally understand just blowing some smoke......hey at least you stayed with a Jeep. And until we got our first JKU a few months back, it would have been real hard to "sell me" on all the extra room.

Seriously Congrats..looks good and you will enjoy the Pentastar....which gears did you end up with?

Nice ...especially if you plan to go off road..both our JK and JKU have 3.21s as they will probably never go off road that is what the TJ is for.....
