ChuckE68 [QUOTE="StarBrite;12836930"] Sorry I missed this earlier. It's a stock decal he bought off eBay. Just search for navy seal decal and it will come up, along with a bunch of others.

Thanks 👍

I would say nothing powered, but I have a little perspective on that. When I was a kid my uncle had an old school Willy's. Not even the wipers were powered. There was a knob in the middle of the dash you moved back and forth to wipe the windshield. He had a 350 corvette engine in it with 4:10 gears. It could do wheelies on the street. That was a true Willy's Wheeler, I guess.

By comparison, mine will be a plush luxury vehicle. Still, manual locks, manual transmission and crank windows is about as low tech as it gets now.

When I told the salesperson that I wanted stick and crank windows he just stared at me for a few seconds. My wife made fun of me all the way home. She suggested we could ask for one without a gas cap and just shove a rag in it.
Congratz and welcome! Now just sit back and enjoy the wait. (it will be over before you know it)

IIIISIIII For those of y'all that have ordered a 2015 Willys JKU would you letting me know what options you added and how much it was? I want to get a feel for cost as I'm highly considering leasing one in orange (when it comes out) instead of buying a used one.

The only known cure is to get rid of the Jeep. IMO that's a classic example of "the cure being worse than the disease". Myself, I'll continue to "suffer". Lol

Nice! You will love the soft top once you get used to putting it up and down. I always find excuses to drive mine as well. Hope to see a picture of your rig soon.

Well, according to our Secret Squirrel they are put on bare metal to bare metal. If I'm going to trust anyone's word on how they are built at the factory, it's his. I've never known him to make a mistake on anything he's told us.

Maybe they are all primed like what I got. Then maybe they're all thrown in a bin together and the threaded posts scar the backsides of the hinge and gives an opening for corrosion.

Just keep an eye on the hinges and have it done when it looks like their sub par repair would be better than the defect.

They say silver is the easiest paint to blend. Based on the job done on Mike's, I'm more afraid of them having to paint my blue doors and not matching the body.
