In the market for a TJ

I'm leaving now to go check out a 2005 Rocky Mountain with 77k on the odometer. It currently has a small body lift and 33's and pretty much stock otherwise. What I'm wondering is what you guys think.

P.S. I'm a college student in southwest FL so I can find another lifted jeep easily it's just that this one has a really clean history and looks like it was taken care of well.

P.P.S. I really don't like the chrome but I will have some left-over money to get new bumpers (Smittybilt) and I'll just work on getting rid of the other parts slowly.

Looks pretty nice. Check for rust on the frame and tub to be sure.

As far as the chrome, I would just pull off the side steps and leave them off and get a new front bumper. Chopped off stock bumpers look pretty darn good for the price in my opinion...

Went well, I put a down payment on it and worked in a deal for them to do a "blackout" on the jeep and they are going to bedline the tub and throw in deep dish floormats. All of this for 14k and I was able to get 10k for my car that was probably worth only about 8k.

I'll put up pics when I pick her up Wednesday.

Getting ready to go in now, cleaned the car out while going down memory lane! Extremely excited for my first Jeep and super stoked that it's a TJ!
