for the wider tires, they need more bs rims (remember the smaller bs number, the more the tires stick out)

if you recommend anything OVER 2000 and not anything PRE 2000, where does that put the 2000 models ??

make sure the dealer/wholeseller as a receipt from the shop the work was done at. i would hate to see you get the truck and it starts to fall apart again in a month.

Damn. If I didn't have my Jeep, that is something I would definitely jump on.

If you put that Jeep next to mine, it would make my Jeep cry for looking so sweet.

I think if you add it up, the goodies on that thing are worth a good chunk of change.

So did you get it? Please post more pics. I'm still drooling. That thig is sick.

Yea, I'm in with smeg. That thing looks like a treasure.

i bought the jeep!! i FINALLY have a jeep!! ive been saying i was going to do it for years now, but oh well, i have one now and thats all that matters.

i actually dont have it yet. like the dealer promised, he is fixing all the things i asked him to.
the new exhaust system was completed today. they are waiting for the parts to come in for the parking brake and the third brake light.
they said possibly tomorrow i will be done, but im not going to get my hopes up until they call me and tell me its ready.

i will put some pics up as soon as i can. hopefully this weekend! too bad there is too much snow up in my neck of the woods, otherwise i would take her out and have some fun somewhere.

wont pass safety/emissions:
front tires stick out too far
frame height is 2" too tall (26")
needs a muffler
needs a parking brake
needs a third brake light
CEL - needs new o2 sensor
window tint too dark

they installed a new exhaust
installed a new 02 sensor
installed mud flaps

they ordered a new parking brake but it was the wrong one, i have to take it back next week so they can put the correct one on.

they ordered some jerry rigged 3rd brake light. told them i didnt care for it till i got my spare tire carrier installed.

as far as everything else; the place they took it to passed it.
i already asked if its ok to bring it back to him every year to get safety/IM done on it, he said thats ok.

any "fix it tickets" i may get must be corrected/paid for by the dealer. state law here in utah. would imagine its like that way everywhere??

anyways, ive got the darn thing.
