And sometimes it's best to know when the deep end is too deep! And trying to fix up a Jeep would put me in WAY over my head!

On a side note- I bought the Mega Bloks Jeep set- basically legos. Bought it because they have an orange lifted Jeep.. I bought all 3 of the sets..
I have decided that you need an engineering degree to put lego's together..

Those are so cool! I'll have to look for them!

If you're 12 and under, you don't need an engineering degree!

Yeah I think they are awesome and will have one eventually. The one I looked at didn't have an engine and a fair amount of sheet metal work need done but the frame was solid. So I would say it was close to scrap and if I had the time and funds it would have fallen into the modded category (6bt, NV4500, NP205, and possibly rockwells). This one was at a point it would have been extremely difficult to restore. But that project will have to wait for another day!

I'm still considering adding an older 2 door soft top to my driveway. I really want one that's lifted and fun as an extra vehicle. I want to go topless all summer! 😉

BagerX2 Edit: longer post than intended follows...

Well I went to the dealer to get my oil changed and the salesmen I bought my jeep from decided to strike up a conversation while I was waiting. He asked if I was getting used to the 4-door yet because when I went to go get my plates a month or so ago I had told him I still wasn't feeling it yet. Well we talked for a bit and I asked him theoretically how would he feel if I was to order a 2 door in sunburst orange. Well the reaction was a dead silence for a few seconds. It was a funny reaction to say the least. I guess so hard to deal with he didn't even want to talk about it so soon after I got this one. After that he said I should probably wait until the new model year opens before I consider my theoretical proposition, which I agreed was probably a good idea. Unrelated to all that, but kind of related. I took all 4 doors off before I went to the dealer for the first time. The muddy jeep with no doors is how he knew I was there because that's how I brought my crush in almost every time I went up there. Anyway, I took them all of because for the first time in weeks we had only a 10% chance of rain for the day. Well it ended up raining for a solid 45 minutes completely soaking my seats and floor. The next day with my doors on and a40% chance of rain there was no rain. This proves that I can control the weather with my jeep...

Ended up winching people out of the spot for 4 hours that night. All started with a nissan truck carrying supplies to a campsite..

Did you do Rocket Launch while you were at Telico?

Guybrush3pwood Those Crush's are rare as hen's teeth these days. Had I known they were going to stop making them, I would have bought one sooner.

BagerX2 Yesterday I went outside to take the doors off, got the passenger door off and was experimenting with trying to store the doors in the back. I was trying this out of curiosity because it tends to rain when I take the doors off and it would be nice if I could take them with me. Conclusion is that they can fit, but not well. I think I'll try rotating them another way today and see if they fit better. Secondary conclusion is that I proved my theory that anytime I take the doors off it rains...

Dig the light bar. Rims are cool too, but a bit to chrome for my taste, plastidipp can fix that... Black grille is cool and so is the cut bumper. Overall, nice ride.
