    My wife has owned three previous Jeeps; but she finally decided to jump in the deep end of the pool. So we've now got a Rubicon Hard Rock to join the family Wrangler collection:

    12 JKU with those cool floor mats and a few other mods. M101A3 with a custom rack that goes up and down.

    Jeep is great for getting anywhere you want to go. Trailer is for overlanding and camping with friends that don't have the camping gear to cook. I've fed 12 people off the tailgate. Cast iron can be heavy.

    I think its too dark for that and Anvil didn't have metal flake. It looks like granite crystal or maybe rhino

    My baby is in the shop all week getting new brakes, new Ujoints, new power steering box, and a new rear frame on both sides. $4k all told, but a lot cheaper than replacing the whole '97 TJ.

    The worst part is the odd look that other Jeep drivers give me when I Jeep Wave to them...while driving my Subaru!

    Spent the weekend riding out a big storm in the Sierra Nevadas while on the Rubicon trail. It was epic to say the least. Rain and hail for 48 hours non stop and the wind was crazy. No idea how fast it was but there was a 125 mph gust warning for Sierra ridge. I had to sleep with ear plugs in it was so loud. Awesome!

    I swapped the factory 17/59 Springs for 19/60's. I added the Teraflex Leveling kit which consist of a 2" spacer in front and a 1" spacer rear. Total lift ended up being 2 1/2".
    Shocks off a 2017 Rubicon.
    Tires are 285/70/17 Nitto Ridge Grapplers using Rubicon Wheels with a 1 1/4 Teraflex Wheel Spacers.

    [​IMG][​IMG] hardly a screw turned since 2002 when I bought it. It's a 95 model and she has been wonderful. Turned over to 200k about a month ago. A steady diet of T6 rotella, good oil and air filters pay off big time. I will be buried in it.

    Just put mine up for sale. It's been in my life longer than 4 out of 5 of my kids. It's really tough cleaning her up knowing it might be the last time.

    Too bad you don't live closer; I'd take a look. My daughter is about ready to drive. We could use a 4th Wrangler:4:

    No problems selling that one. Looks nice, clean, no huge lift but not stock. It's good as gone!

    Thanks for the info. I have the 2016 a few posts above that looks like your twin. Mine has 17/58 now and I have 19/60 springs in the garage. I can't decide if it will be worth swapping them. What do you think?

    If it was mine I would swap. Just the springs I gained 3/4" in front and 1/2" rear. Ride is a little stiffer but I do not worry about putting a load in the rear and it sagging. I have a small off road trailer I built and it only drops about 1/4" with the trailer loaded.

    My next (or latest) one....2001 Cherokee, needs a little TLC. The usual (for this year) head, some brake work, and probably crankshaft bearings. Obtained from a defaulted loan, don't think I did so well, but, I'll be happier when it's running again. PB160044.JPG

    My buddy just bought himself a 58 Jeep for his 58th birthday. Wish I would have thought of that when I turned 41.

    She's bigger than she looks in the pic. 4-5 inch lift and 35 inch tires.

    My 05 liberty needs a bunch of work and I'm not willing to invest the $$$ required. I want a JKU but they seem so darned expensive these days. I'm not much of a mechanic and hesitate when it comes to buying used because I don't have the experience or senses to catch issues from a lookover and short drive. This would be so much simpler if I just won the lotto!

    Your best bet is to buy an unmodified Wrangler, probably a TJ, from a dealer. There is a limited amount of stuff that can be wrong with a stock Wrangler and any dealer should give you at least a few month warranty to catch it.

    It looks like I might be leaving the world of Jeeps. I can't say any more as it's too embarrassing (ie. minivan). :17:
