Justin, it's still an LJ, don't get so bloody hung up on handles It is a beauty, you will be able to build an awesome rig out of it. Are you going to be able to steal any goodies off your old one?

Besides, you guys loved your old rig, keeping the 04LJ, would be kind of a memorial to it. My password is the name of a dog that I loved very much. I don't change it because he is gone and I have other dogs. I keep it in honor of him.

Good, that stuff is all expensive, and you won't have to replace it. One thing to consider, when you redo the lift, go with a long arm kit. I know they are more expensive but a short arm suspension over three inches gets kinda dicey if you have to do a fast maneuver.

Congrats Justin! You won't regret the Rubi when wheeling! Manual or auto?

We could do the Manchester Creek area. Won't strain a stock jeep, much less a Rubi. And I'm sure we could find a tree for you to climb Mike...

It'll be nice but I want to be easy on this girl. Shes way too pretty. Going to start with a 1 inch bl with tummy tuck maybe a new exhaust. Then more skid plates then start the suspension.
