Then the flip is with 5 people the XJ would make a better money pit for family wheeling. Hmmmm
There's a little price jump but I'd suggest a ZJ.

[QUOTE=staud11;3301897]Alright I need some honest opinions!!

I painted my bezels yellow today! I plan on doing the tie rod, sway bar links, and track bar yellow to! I'm kind of in the middle with the look! Should I just re paint them black or keep the yellow????


Looks good, giving it some color but will eventually get bored and bed line em lol

I like the black w/ the blue, makes the lights look smaller

The only real difference is the location of the lever to fold the seat down. On pre 01 (I think) it is down in between where the seat and back connect and the on post 01 (I think) models they moved it to the top center on the bak side of the seat.

The 03-up seats have a different shape, higher back and the levers to flip are in different places

Body Armor sliders. Love them functional as a step( just need some grip tape) and they hold my weight.

connected a set of LED marker and LED blinker/running lights on each side of my new Poison Spyder Defender fenders. Still need to replace the flasher with one made for LEDs, but other than blinking too fast, they seem to work well.

lilyeller took and posted some pics on to the cut the contact inside the factory flasher relay. Its the contact that makes them flash faster when a bulb is out. Incase you wanna do it for the price of FREE. Flasher relay is easy enough to get to.
