I was quoted $750 to line-X my 4 door tub from the dealer on Menaul. Does anyone know of a cheaper route and does anyone have any knowledge of their skill? I won't be able to line for a while but at some point I will be lining my tub.

If that's them doing everything, the price will be less if you do most of the stripping of the interior first. The cost is mostly in the prep.

There is a trail ride to cedro peak this Saturday here is the link http://www.nm4w.org/calendar/?ev_id=144

Anyone going or want to go?

Also twin peaks is having a car wash the same day from 11-4, the manager asked if we would bring the jeeps down for it.


The run starts at 0830 at smiths on tramway, so I was thinking of going of the run then shoot over to TP for a buffing..... Any takers

I haven't explored that area yet for Cedro Peak. Anything to consider? How does it compare to the Puerco?

Not sure what your budget is, there is was a really nice TJ at Desert rat off-road for sale. It had a Hemi conv, prorock 60's, tons of nice equipment. I didn't ask the price but its gonna be $$. The up side is its built and defiantly trail ready, if that's something you are looking for.

Yeah that's more than I am looking for, something stock that I can modify to my own preference. Or something mildly done two inch lift with some 31's maybe.

Oh I understand completely, I have been shopping for a 2dr JK for a Builder and there is a ton of good buys in AZ. I saw several TJ's for sale as well. Good luck, hope you find your jeep.

When I was looking at getting mine I took the kids to That Car Place on Wyoming and I was very impressed with their service. I still went with the jku for the family room but if a tj would have fit I would have gotten mine from That Car Place. The kids and I were allowed to climb in and out of all their tj's and not once were we pressured. Someone else mentioned that the old man there is a real stand up guy.

Nice. It's at least a great place to window shop. They had a couple of LJ's that I was able to compare to a full 4 door. My kids are by no means little.
