I can see the pics just fine - they are at the bottom of your post in a little table, but just to make things easy, I've linked them in here:

You need some sort of photo editing software to resize an image to the right size for an avatar. You can use The Gimp which is freeware - . However, if that's too confusing for you after you get it, just shoot me an AIM and I can do it for you.

I dont use aim, but I can give you the page to which it is on.


JeepCrawler98 04-07-2005 11:17 AM

Ok - resized and added to your profile, enjoy :)

jpwheelin07 04-07-2005 11:28 AM

JeepCrawler98 04-07-2005 12:26 PM

No problem, glad to help :)

Jeep looks good boss. Just one thing missing though!!!

Get it out and wheel it. :D :D :D I can remember when I did my buildup on mine. I was jonesing so hard to get it out and tear up everything I had just done.

Nice Unlimited. They look so much better with the bigger shoes under them.

Finished........ yeah, heard that one before. :) lets see, you will probably invest in a bikini, duster and some more lights. Then a rear bumper w/ some good tow points and a mount for that spare. you'll prolly wanna get some on-board air - after you have to air up those 33'S a few times.

But so far you have an incredible Jeep. I wish I could get a new Jeep. Love the color and the Mods, Congrats.

EDIT: i didnt see you already have a Bikini. it got lost in that big ol list.

JeepCrawler98 04-16-2005 09:06 PM

A finished Jeep is never finished! :flipoff: Don't settle in anytime soon - a Jeep isn't going to stop tugging at you until your out of money and living out of a box with a connected 2 car garage :D

It's an addiction. I figure it's one addiction I can live with much to the dismay of my wife. She puts up with it. At least she knows where I'm at...

I can't stop laughing! It's been a little while since I've had time to come back and check this forum. You guys are so right. A jeep is NEVER finished. As a matter of fact, I jsut installed a Hoist-a-Top in my garage. It's the only place at my house I can store the hard top. I haven't taken the hard top off yet, but I plan to over the weekend. I jsut hope that the hoist is mounted as securely as I think it is! I have a question for you guys: Has anyone had any experience with the off-road trailers like and/or ?

jsmestu 04-22-2005 02:53 PM

JeepDogg - Wives just don't seem to get the whole Jeep thing, do they! Mine hates the things. Sometimes a guys just gotta do what a guys gotta do!

Nice Unlimited. Looks great with the lift/tire combo. Love that color too.
