    I almost went with a ‘13+ JK but there’s just something about the TJs and the LJs that do it for me. I like the barebones raw and simple feel to it and the size of it more compared to the JKs. I appreciate JKs for what the they are but they’re just not for me.

    Congratulations on the LJ! Getting hard to find a good TJ let alone the rarer LJ. Great color and some JK accessories may fit too.

    I bought my college-aged daughter a ‘99 TJ, which she loves. Already changed the front LED’s to pink :burnrubber:

    I did downsize her 35’s to 33’s so that she can be a little more stable. Winds up the 488’s a little though

    She hates this photo as she was grungy from cleaning it out in my dumb shirt

    New 33’s

    Finally got it trailered out to Ole Miss for her. I didn’t want her driving CA to MS. Now she’s throwing some MS mud

    The problem with a lift is the looks of the fender wells. After sanding all that showed, I put a spray can of 3M truck bed liner on just the inner fender. Then I put two coats of Rustoleum grey primer on the frame. After an hour I mixed some Hot Rod black and sprayed both. It's the only thing I ever used spray on liner for that seems to have worked! Ideas?

    I built a box for the rear cargo area. Fits up against the tailgate so if it's locked you can't access. Bolted to the floor using the seatbelt mount. Mount a cooler on top on vacation and realized I needed some kind of shelf so added a slide out.

    No joke I was just thinking about building one similar the other day. I’m a short guy so I think I can build something to be able to sleep in when I drive across the country. Place a thin mattress on top and I’m set.

    I found this while google searching a little. They said the total length is 68”. I might be able to squeeze in there for a night or two. D936E406-B533-43CC-921A-98F0F0F9B0F1.jpgC76F9EF5-2EED-4E5B-86DB-A62E2FA39357.jpg
