Finally Got One
Hello everyone, I was mulling over a 2005 Mustang GT or a Jeep and since I live in Palm Springs I decided on a Jeep (Joshua Tree, Anza, Mojave, San Jacinto, San Gorgonio). With Employee Pricing and other discounts I got a great deal on a new CE 4 cyl. 6 sp. It even has cloth seats and AC. Even in the Summer we drive around with the everything but the half doors off (Morning and Evenings). I can't wait to start exploring the desert this weekend. I bought running boards for it on ebay but they didn't come with any bolts so I measured my neighbors and they were 10mm? Stange.

Congrats on the new jeep and welcome to the forum. As for the bolts.. jeep is known to use some odd sizes and types..you may want to get your self a torq's (spelling?) (star looking ones) set to remove those should the need come up.

Yeah, congrats on the new purchase. You keep wrenchin on your joop and you will find all kinds of fun sizes and types of bolts. It's just part of the legend. "sitting there scratching your head going...Now why would they build it that way"
