I just did a quick search on this forum, I think you might be the first forum member to ever actually buy one of these.

A friend of mine owns a body shop and does a coating very similar to their Kevlar paint. He actually uses Kevlar as the material. I think you will be very happy with what you will be getting, the stuff is damn near indestructible.

IMHO, Starwood Motors JK's have always been way too Pimp My Ride-ish for my simple taste. Is that show with that Hip Hop fellow even still on?

With my buddies truck all he does is power wash it and it looks brand new. But I did notice there are some spots like under the tailgate handle that are a PITA to deep clean.

What I was trying to state was that ANYONE can be replaced at their job by a younger, newer, person who will do the job faster for less money.

Doctors, engineers, lawyers, etc, may have earned their spots on the financial ladder in the first place but they are lucky to keep those spots day to day. As stated above, there is someone who can do the job better, faster, and for far less money.

You all should really stop acting so entitled. It's a very old school way of thinking, especially with today's growing skilled population. I see old guys with your entitled attitudes get replaced weekly at my work. The company says their job role is no longer needed... just ignore the 26 year old who came in for half the money with a lesser job title that's now handling all of the previous guy's duties.

Do ya'll now understand what luck really is?

we actually supply Starwood with our 14 inch black billet antennas. I actually thought about Starwood today whenever I buy my next Jeep it might be one of theirs as I don't have the time anymore to build my Jeeps and I really like that Kevlar. There is a market for pre-built custom Jeeps as some Jeep Dealers already know this. Its much easier to roll all those mods into your car payment than spending at least $4k-$6k for wheels/tires/lift afterwards out of pocket

You hit the nail on the head with that statement. There are at least 3 dealers in Chicagoland that sell "modded" jeeps from the showroom floor. Not thread hijacking, just co-signing! I'm looking forward to the pics as well as everyone else!

I can honestly say it's one of the nicer looking ones I have seen from them. The only thing I can't get past is the Jeep on the grill is sprayed. I think it would look really sharp in black on that Jeep.

First, Grats on the jeep.

As for people rolling mods into the loan. I get it but I'd rather save a bit instead of paying interest on mods. The dealers around here really bend you over on mod price as well.

I've seen Starwood Jeeps for sale in the mid 40s which about what you'd expect to pay for a fully loaded Honda minivan. I doubt the minivan forums discuss how lucky someone is to have a job that allows them to have the touring edition Honda Odyssey.

The lower end prices aren't bad at all, considering my local dealers all have a few on the lot at any given time that have lifts, new rims, and the TeraFlex tire carrier .... all listed around $41,800 - $44,000. Starwood has the kevlar paint and bumpers starting at what looks like $47,000. Not bad at all.
