Good looking ride! let the mods begin!!!

richp 04-23-2008 07:32 AM

Wow, that looks too clean for NY, you sure the bottoms not rotted out :D
I also love those wheels, I run them on my XJ.

Nice Jeep! Very clean. What mods are you planning to start with?

Sailor2017 04-23-2008 07:59 AM

Well, since I still live in NYC, I ordered my Tuffy Center Console, then trailer hitch, looking at some of the Warn bumpers, and probably a mile marker winch. Lift kit down the road..

and nope..the bottom isn't rotted out, the old owner just felt like it was time to get a new one, I've known him for a few years now. The tires have to go because they actually have some dry rot, but that'd be it for the "problems" column. The old owner took great care of her.

Sailor2017 04-23-2008 08:01 AM

Oh, and I have to get the brackets to move the side view mirrors off the doors for when I drive her without doors/top/and whatever else I can take off :D

You like it now...wait till you drive with no top/doors:punk::D

Sailor2017 04-24-2008 11:44 AM

I was hoping to do that this weekend, great weather all week, so I haven't had a chance to play, now the weekend is coming, and I wanted to take everything off, but they are saying it's going to rain :(

txjustin 04-24-2008 01:04 PM

What ya pay for it?

Sailor2017 04-25-2008 06:23 AM

does anyone know if they make a side view mirrors that you put into the hinge for where the door used to be? Is that the CJ-Style? or is that something else...I am dying to take the doors off, but I know that in NY I've gotta have something.

If someone has somewhere to buy 'em, put up a link please, cuz I haven't seen anything yet
