The real question is.... do I put a thin orange pin stripe down it? Like this pic... but orange:
It's damn nice, isn't it? These new trucks are sick.
So... you spent 37k so you didn't have to pay $1500? It's a sweet truck, no doubt. I love that color. You should color wrap the hood! I actually started going thru repairs with an Expedition Eddie Bauer. Loved the truck but those fggging coil on plugs were a bear and cost an arm and a leg for each one. I got rid of it and took a $5k bath, bc the headaches were too much. Had several other problems with it.
Well, it's taken a few days for the physicist in me to get move past that. It was obviously much more than that. Like you said... the small headaches were just never ending. But I could live with those as long as she was running well and up to the next major repair.
Y’all cheap bastards are a drain on the economy.
I love Infiniti. I had a G37 that was one of my favorite cars ever. I love the Q70 and almost got one. Right now I either drive the F250 or Jeep I posted last night. In the market soon for a car...I want the Q70 but the wife wants a Benz convertible. Trading in her Land Rover so she’ll probably win. My issue is you see a Benz at every traffic light in SoFla but you could drive all day and not see another Q70.
How much do you have invested in aftermarket on the Jeep? I like those LED headlights. I want a toy but I'm too damn cheap.
I bought the Jeep a little over a year ago-as is for about $6500. It’s a 1997. It needed a new windshield and the exhaust manifold was cracked but the seller gave me both to install included. I’ve spent maybe $2000 mostly on the interior. The 97’s came with a green and beige interior. I blacked out everything....dash, glove, console, floor board, door panels....and then put on black and blue seat covers and a new stereo system and of course some Gator floor mats. Looks a thousand times better. It is just a toy. I haven’t been off road much with it although where I live in the sticks it’s all dirt roads. I drive it local mostly. It’s got 190k miles on it but has been well maintained over the years. Then again my F250 has 222k miles on it and it’s still going strong.
Lightbars before lockers huh? Just messing wit ya. For those who don't know Jeeps have more accessories available than probably any other vehicle. One outfit alone has a nearly 7/16th inch thick catalog just for 07 up JK models, Bigger than their 41-06 catalog. My 08 JK with a "few" mods.
It looks pretty damned good for what you got into it.
That a 4 or 6 cylinder? Good 4.0 TJs are going for around 8-10K, Know of one they want 12+ but it's in perfect shape, One of my customers LJs (unlimited stretched TJ) 4.0 are 2-4K more TJ Rubicons another 2-3+ And the holy grail of the TJ line is the LJ Rubicon, Good ones start at 20 in most cases but there's a few steals out there. Even 4 cylinder TJs are going for 6+
Nice toy... Mine is definitely not that clean
My first new vehicle was a 93 Cherokee with that engine. I could FINALLY pass without worrying. Loved that machine. Vinyl seats and rubber floors. We kids from the beach were no problem. A sheet of plywood fit with the back seat laid down. In 20 yrds I could get it to jump the railroad crossing at the grandparents and get airborn.( my two kids loved that) Most impressive thing I ever saw was it pulling our 22ft Aquasport up the Cedar Key boat ramp covered in slick vegatation. I JUST knew it would drag me into the lagoon. And it was only two wheel drive. INlaws got a fckn MINIVAN and my cherokee days were over cause we had to have one. now my real question: DID any of you know about this. A Mercury PU. Saw it on an old Robert Redoford movie. Apparently they made em in Canada. I want one. If was wealthy I would have one just like it.
Buy a Ford and repaint it? It is clearly just an F150. I think it had to do with Canadian tariffs and the Mercury plant in Canada having line space. Mercury M series - Wikipedia Mercury Truck History – Mercury Pickup This would be sweet, a Mercury badged Econoline truck.
Cool memories. I remember (reluctantly) when we went through the minivan phase. Hated that damn thing. But it was convenient with 3 youngins all about a year apart. Giving them all there own row was a godsend.
